When this DVD was produced in 1986, the Producers thereof had no way of knowing that the East Europeans cry for freedom would be answered within a few short years. In fact the opposite view held sway. It was an open question of when the West would succumb to Communist domination & not whether they would.

The prevailing dogma of Communism in the Soviet Union, as it was then known, had their staunch adherents fervently believe the adage that they enjoyed more freedom & were materially better off than their brethren in the West.

Not so their fellow members of the Warsaw Pact. This DVD covers their attempts not at divorce from Stalinist totalitarianism but their attempts only to obtain a modicum of freedom within the Communist system. The Soviet Union did not see it this way. At the zenith of their supremacy & with the West in disarray over student riots in 1968, the unwinnable Vietnam War, the idiotic Suez Crisis, many shared in the misguided belief that the future would be a Socialist one.

In Eastern Europe, their people saw through the political cant as they experienced the vast swathes of Soviet troops within their borders & their lack of freedom & material possessions. First it was the East Germans to revolt. With Stalin at his most paranoid & vicious self, this dissent was easily crushed.

Next came the Hungarians shortly after Stalin's death. Khrushchev was no Stalinist but his jovial exterior belied a steely determination not to allow any non-conformity with the Soviet's way, albeit minor. After initially appearing to acquiesce to Hungarian requests to withdraw their troops, the Soviets merely withdrew from Budapest but remained stationed within the country. The Suez crisis was the West's own goal.
