Why did it took so long, to be released with English subtitles. This series is basically an earlier version of Band of Brothers, the Soviet soldiers experience.
There is astonishingly little Soviet propaganda "in your face", Yuri Oserov was a great Director, who was able, to keep the soviet entertainment apparatshicks at distance. His honest and gritty style was very popular with the Russian audience.
Off course, do not expect the Warsaw incident, Katyn and so on be mentioned. Even if Yuri Oserov was aware of it in 1970, when he produced this series, he could not have included those incidents. Even in the saw period after Stalin, those topics remained taboo. There where 10'000's of Russian Soldiers utilized as extra's for the big battle scenes, and hundreds of tanks and airplanes. In the absence of CGI, a great
orchestration was necessary to put everything together, and who was the best man to do it? Yury Oserov. He deserves great praise for it. In the future such battle spectacles will be on par, with the many great battle paintings, we see and marvel at museums. For many resons, the large variety of tanks, vehicles and weapons being displayed are not authentic. We see Russian T-34/85 tanks in the movie, when we should have seen T-35/76 that where actually doing most at the fighting at Kursk. And so it goes on. But the viewers of the 70's probably didn't care about this detail. And it would be prohibitive budged-wise to see more than that.
The acting is great, and not only the best of the popular east european actors/actress have participate in this series, but some west european actors too.
Specially the French, who played the pilots of the Normandy-Njemen Squadron, fighting as volunteers for the Soviet airforce. Than there is Fritz Dietz, the east german actor, for one of the best portraits of Hitler. A very gifted artist.
He played Hitler in many other east european productions. Sort of typecasted.

Well, where does one begin? If you a) like epic films; study warfare; are prepared to accept the time this was made; don't mind subtitles - buy this film classic.
I have seen many clips on You-Tube & begged info as to its origin & when (if) it would ever be released in the West with English subtitles. well now it has - someone has listened - thank you!
A Russian patriotic study this is: so do not be surprised ifs all Russians are good, charitable & brave. There's lots of 'Follow me chaps', heroic deaths and but one female character (a nurse obviously). It's the 70's so don't expect a 'Ryan/Scorsese bloodbath of spurting gore; this director does it fine without. Not all tanks etc are 100% accurate but are a damn site more believable that contemporary US films like 'Battle of the Bulge' or 'Anzio' for example. For some reason the action scenes are in colour but the general staff scenes are black & white. So - those are the criticisms, now for the good bits:-
Never have I seen such momentous, epically filmed and numerically casted battle scenes as in this film since the Russian version of 'War & Peace from 1955(?). Obviously, the Russian government sanctioned its production & lent 1000s of its armed forces as extras. However, the sheer organization & orchestration of these scenes deserves unremitted praise (& this is the '70's - before CGI!). Of especial note are the scenes shot from the air.
The characterisation of the main staffs on both sides is remarkable with Hitler, Goebbels, Zhukov, Stalin, Mussolini, Roosevelt etc. at least looking like their originals is masterful casting. Hitler undergoes remarkable transformation from Fuhrer to poorly old man - a great performance.

This was a great series of war movies which up until now has only ever had a limited release, unfortunately it has been released without being restored or remastered which is a great disappointment. However collectors and serious war movie fans will still want it as it will probably only be around at a cheap price for short time. Ps the DVD format is NTSC and the picture is VHS quality.
