Many of the battles that we remember from World War II took place in Western Europe. Yet in the East multiple offensives occurred that played an equal if not more decisive role in the Allied victory. Here, for the first time on DVD, Discovery presents a series of programmes that bring the war on the Eastern Front to your screen. Using restored archive footage that has rarely been seen in the last 70 years, these are the Russian Battles of World War II. From the Battle of Kursk to Prague, the blockade of Leningrad to the Stalingrad apocalypse, we open the archives to reveal the true story of some of the most intense battle in history. Thanks to testimonies from those who were there, previously unseen documents, computer graphics and previously unseen but now restored footage, we can now piece together the Russian battles that helped shape the outcome of World War II.
