Did You Know?


During the 3 episodes a number of letters are read by the narrator and some actors in order to portray different soldiers and civilians from both sides. But in fact, all the excerpts came from letters of German soldiers. The nationality of some people who wrote the letters and sometimes even the gender had been changed. See more »

User Reviews

This documentary is great!!
16 December 2006 | by fivestarmichaelSee all my reviews

Someone once said, "may you live in interesting times." I have to say I enjoy learning about World War II history because it was such an interesting time in our civilization. For someone born 35 years ago it is hard to imagine such a brutal world existed just 65 years ago. This documentary gives the viewer so much insight into the experiences of those caught in such a historic moment.

Stalingrad was a turning point in the tide of World War II. The director, producers and writers went to great lengths to find people to tell their stories of war. This documentary is sad and wonderful. Wonderful? Because everyone can and should learn something about this moment in history. It says so much about humanity.

If the producers read this... someone should do a documentary on Paulus. I want to know what became of him after the war.
