Storyline

Primarily a biographical documentary about the military career of Alexander Vasilvich Suvorov, who was Field Marshal of the armies of Catherine the Great and Czar Paul I. After many military successes during the reign of Catherine, General Suvorov broke with her successor, Paul I, the Mad Emperor, over questions regarding army policy. He went into retirement and wrote "The Science of Victory," containing maxims such as "Swiftness of movement accompanies victory," and "the real general is he who defeats the enemy before reaching him." The czar recalled Suvorov to become the leader of the joint armies of Rissia and Austria against Napoleon. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

God have mercy!
18 January 2016 | by (Russia) – See all my reviews

Before watching it looked 5-hour documentary about the Suvorov and ordered his book "Science of Victory" ... I look forward to :) In school we learned a lot about Suvorov, like everything, everything on the fly, casual, required us to remember some bare facts. Disclosure of the identity of Suvorov and transformed me. Positive! Education has made it a lifetime highly motivated, highly spiritual leader, the commander of which he dreamed and dreams can be said every soldier. The film is perfectly chosen the right actor, and in appearance, and facial expression, and speech. Let it squandered all the battles and left only a trek through the Alps, however, the cancellation Crescendo! It is better that his short line segment his life is done, most likely, will not, that approach to the movie is constantly changing ... Quite a motivating speech late on Soviets way. The film was shown in the 40s, right during the Second World War, he must have a positive impact on the morale and patriotism of the people, as well as Alexander Nevsky. I liked it very much to their charge and morality.
