Why We Fight, Volume 5 - Battle of Russia (VHS)

Russia Other



Frank Capra's classic documentary series!

A series of seven documentaries produced by the War Department exclusively for the armed forces. The office of War Information later released them to the American public. Many scenes were obtained from actual battle footage, captured enemy films, official United Nations films and American newsreels. All maps, diagrams, and a few historical reenactments were authenticated and prepared by the War Department. These films depict the events leading up to our entry into the war and the principles for which we fought.

"WHY WE FIGHT, Volume 5 - Battle of Russia" - To understand Russia's tireless struggle, we must know and understand their past. This video tells a brief history of Russia, her people, her resources, and her wars.

On Aug. 21, 1939, Hitler breaks the treaty he signed with Russia, reneging on his agreement. He continues his onslaught to the East.Hitler is victorious in Moscow and Leningrad, but the tide turns at the Battle of Stalingrad, where he is thoroughly defeaated.

Just as the thirst for power that drives our enemies springs from their historic past, so the everlasting will for freedom of our Allies is born out of their historic traditions.
