This review is from: Battlefield Russia: The Eastern Front! 3 DVD Set! (DVD)
"Battlefield - Russia : the Eastern Front" is a must-have if you're interested in the German-Soviet war of 1941-1945.
Three discs depict three crucial stages of the bloodiest campaign in history... From the German invasion 1941 via the battle for Stalingrad 1942-1943 to the final Soviet offensives 1944-1945... A fourth episode about Kursk 1943 would have been welcome to make this superb series complete.
The narration may seem dry but provides lots of details about both sides' order of battle, operational plans and background to some key weaponry.
The chosen footage is presented in the correct geographical and chronological context - something which is all too much lacking in similar productions.
The added battle sounds are muted, so they don't overwhelm the viewer.
The only minor point in my opinion is the repetitive soundtrack, but that doesn't prevent me from giving this DVD set 5/5
