Originally a Soviet film on the World War II Battle of Moscow titled Rout of the German troops near Moscow, this English language version was widely distributed in American theaters. Narrated by actor Edward G. Robinson, the film won a 1943 Academy Award. The documentary begins in October of 1941 with citizens bracing for an attack on the Soviet capital, and traces events through January of 1942 - when counterattacks led to the German retreat. This film includes graphic scenes of war that some viewers may find disturbing. close
