Excellent cast, Peck is great in this vehicle with limited resources. Co-star Tamara Toumanova is beautiful as his love interest. Depects the sacrafice the russian peoples army made fighting the Nazis. The army was made up of ordinary people banding together in small units to harass and eventually drive the germans out of their homeland. Excellent personel interaction between the actors that gives you the feeling of their inner thoughts, fear, love and bravery and not just war action. Patriotic and tearfull at times.
