USSR, Late November, 1941 - this is the story of Panfilov's Twenty-Eight, a group of twenty-eight soldiers of the Red Army's 316th Rifle Division, under the command of General Ivan Panfilov, that stopped the advance on Moscow of a column of fifty-four Nazi tanks of the 11th Panzer Division for several days. Though armed only with standard issue Mosin-Nagant infantry rifles and DP and PM-M1910 machine guns, all useless against tanks, and with wholly inadequate RPG-40 anti-tank grenades and PTRD-41 anti-tank rifles, they fight tirelessly and defiantly, with uncommon bravery and unwavering dedication, to protect Moscow and their Motherland.

Not just another war movie
- Battle for Moscow review by DM
This film which the makers crowd funded, is based on the true story of how a small group of Russian soldiers stood between the might of the Nazi war machine, including tanks and heavy artillery bombardment, and Moscow.
For days they fought back with the utmost courage and defended they're position destroying or disabling countless tanks in the process, it was a really good film and well worth watching.
