Synopsis:
"Soviet Storm: WW2 in the East" tells the incredible stories from the Second World War's biggest and bloodiest theatre of war. Told from an unprecedented Russian perspective the 18 episodes explore some of the most devastating battles of World War II - from the Red Army's catastrophic encirclement at Kiev in 1941 to the notorious 'Rzhev meat-grinder'. The series also looks at the dramatic recovery of the Soviet air force from its almost total destruction in the first days of the war,'the role of Baltic Sea Fleet submarines, the brutal partisan war fought against a backdrop of Nazi genocide, and the crucial role of Soviet secret intelligence.
Four out of five German soldiers killed in World War II died on the Eastern Front. The Red Army suffered ten times as many dead as the Western Allies combined. The total dead on all sides was more than 30 million, most of them civilians. Hitler and Stalin were prepared to accept losses on any scale in the pursuit of victory. Across 18 episodes the biggest battles, the key personalities and the decisive weapons of the war are examined in depth including legendary tanks like the T-34 and the Tiger, and less well-known Soviet aircraft such as the Ilyushin 2 'flying tank' or the superb Lavochkin La-5 fighter. From the German invasion of 22nd June 1941 ('Operation Barbarossa') through to the brutal fighting outside the gates of Moscow, the savage street-fighting of Stalingrad, and the long, bloody road to Berlin, this is an epic retelling of the world's most devastating conflict.
