    War of the Century from The History Channel examines the bloody conflict that took place in Eastern Europe during the Second World War. Hitler and the Nazis fought on one side of the war while Stalin led the opposing Soviet Union forces on the other. This four-part TV series was filmed in Germany, Hungary, Poland, Russia, Ukraine, and Belorussia, and is dedicated to the events that took place during this deadly conflict. From the time Hitler invaded the Soviet Union in 1941 until his eventual defeat in 1942, over 30 million people were killed and even more were injured. This series not only includes interviews with leading historians and extremely rare film footage, but also presents eyewitness reports detailing some of the events that took place during the fight for Moscow. Even during this devastating war, the terror that occurred inside the Soviet Union due to the ever paranoid Joseph Stalin could not go unnoticed. In this historical series, the complicated and often fatal internal conflict is discussed alongside the larger war between Nazism and Stalinism. This approach created a unique and educational documentary that sheds light on one of the deadliest wars ever fought.moreless
