Synopsis by Jason Buchanan

In this detailed look at one of the most significant battles of the Second World War, filmmakers document the fighting that occurred in the Crimea after the area was secured by General Manstein in 1941. During the struggle to secure the Crimea, General Manstein and his men overpowered two entire Soviet army troupes. Later, when the Germans were defeated at Stalingrad and Kursk, General Manstein and his men suddenly found their supply route cut off as advancing Soviet forces grew increasingly intense. Rare archival footage helps to tell the tale of this defining battle in greater detail than ever before.
