Briliand, fresh, and surprising.
26 June 2013 | by (Poland) – See all my reviews

It's astonish production. It reveals, classified up till not long ago, historical facts about Stalin, Churchill, Roosevelt, theirs talks, relations, and actions. Finally, it expose Poland's perspective on II World War, which was falsified by Stalin, and those lies, live in minds of many people around the world, up to this day.

It's just astonish documentary. You have to see that, not only to get familiar with real history of WW2, but also to have balanced view on todays policies of superpowers and motivations behind it (where it come from).

Joseph Stalin was a tyrant responsible for the death of millions, yet he was also a vital ally of Britain and America during the Second World War.

How was it possible for Churchill and Roosevelt to deal with one communist tyrant, Joseph Stalin, in order to help beat another, national-socialist Adolf Hitler? That's one of the key questions at the heart of this six-part BBC's landmark history TV series.

The series uses dramatic reconstructions, based on extensive fresh research in Russian and Western archives, and extraordinary testimony from witnesses of the time, including former Soviet secret policemen who have not spoken before on camera, in order to tell a 'behind closed doors' history.

In other words, you just have to see this documentary. It's not just another WW2 documentary.
