political propaganda that is full of fakes
1 December 2003 | by See all my reviews

Historical reality: The battle of Stalingrad was directed Marshal Zhukov, but he was not even mentioned in this film. The reason was that after the Second World War, Zhukov's fame increased rapidly, and Stalin was unhappy about it, so he sent Zhukov to be the commander-in-chief of romote military districts in order to eliminate this potential political threat. This film faithfully followed the Stalin's will, discounting what Zhukov had accomplished and gave the credit to Stalin instead.
