From the same production team as the critically acclaimed 'Das Boot', this film brings the bloodiest battle in the history of warfare to the screen - the legendary battle of Stalingrad.
With German forces following Hitler's orders to neither retreat or surrender, over 2 million Russians and Germans lost their lives in what came to be a turning point in the defeat of Germany in the Second World War. Pulling no punches in revealing the gritty reality of combat, the viewer is put in the trenches with the young soldiers as they face the harsh elements and brutal fighting conditions.
Considered in the company of such anti-war classics as 'Paths Of Glory', 'Platoon', and 'Apocalypse Now', 'Stalingrad' stands alone in its searing unforgettable imagery.
