The unknown war ( Visual )
3 editions published between 1978 and 2011 in English and held by 130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In 1978, the Soviet Union produced "The Unknown War" as something of a response to the 1973 U.S. series "The World At War" feeling that the latter series shortchanged the role that Russia played in WWII. While not outright propaganda, it is resolutely pro-Soviet, glorifying their soldiers and people. This includes episodes about everyday life for Russians during the war, and how the Soviet government moved their production facilities to Siberia to escape the Nazis (and ended up being the most productive country during the war). Despite plentiful, revelatory unearthed combat footage, it feels rather stodgy, which--given that it was commissioned by the Soviet government--is not all that surprising
