What were Hitler’s plans prior to the invasion of the U.S.S.R.? And why did the Soviet Army suffer so many defeats during the initial stages of The Great Patriotic War of 1941-1945?

These and many more questions are covered in the stunning animated television series, The Battle for Moscow, in which brilliant 3D-graphic special effects recreate the events of that war. Each of the sixty-five 5-minute episodes clearly and dramatically illustrates the battle scenes, the defence plans and disposition of the armies, the numbers of armed forces on both sides, their weapons, aircraft, armoured vehicles and other defence technology.

The Battle for Moscow is a chronicle of grandiose expectations and sobering reality, great victories and crushing defeats, outstanding military personalities and political leaders as well as the state-of-the-art equipment. This is the story of a truly devastating war.
