This communist propaganda film recalls the heroism of Soviet soldiers fighting the Nazis in World War II. Forty of the 236 cameramen used for the feature were killed during their mission filming the Red Army. While the Battle of Stalingrad is the main focus, no mention is made of the pact between Hitler and Stalin or the American aid received by the Russians.
