Synopsis

Acclaimed historian Professor John Erickson reassesses the savage conflict fought between Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union, focusing on the period that saw the collapse of German initiative in the east. After the defeat of the Sixth Army at Stalingrad, and the loss of hundreds of thousands of men, Hitler's last gamble was the epic armoured assault at Kursk in 1943, but which resulted in another crushing German defeat. Featuring rare archive footage and informative maps.
