Abstract:

Part five of a propaganda series of seven information films shown to the American G.I. in the 1940's. Originally produced by the United States government for the Morale Services Division which documents the causes and events leading up to World War II and exhorts Americans to support the war effort. The battle of Russia: Celebrates the spirit of the long-suffering Soviet people as they heroically repulse the Nazi invasion threatening their homeland. Tracing their history of war with Germany to the 13th century, it depicts the bitter struggles for Moscow, Kiev, Leningrad, and Stalingrad, and the effects of their winters on would-be conquerors from Napoleon to Hitler.
