Operation Barbarossa: The Russian German War

Operation Barbarossa: The Russian German War is an eye-opening account of the events that unfolded between the Russians and Germans on the Eastern Front during WWII. Narrated by Douglas Rein (The voice of HAL in 2001: A Space Odyssey), this fascinating series, which originally aired in Canada in 1995 and features German and Russian film footage that has never before been seen outside those countries, comes to DVD on 24 August 2015. Far more than a struggle between nations, it pitted tyrant against tyrant and evil ideology against evil ideology as the lives of tens of millions were consumed by the conflict. One in 10 Russians died. One in four Poles died and whole divisions of Italians, Romanians and Hungarians disappeared without a trace. On average, 17,800 people died every single day - and the war on the Russian/German front lasted for 1,400 days.
