Source / Extended Overview https://www.arte.tv/de/videos/RC-021489/die-rote-armee/In 1918, Leon Trotsky founded the Red Army. After the victory over Nazism, the glory of the Red Army was initially over. This two-part documentary deconstructs in an epic narrative - fed by excerpts from letters and diaries of high-ranking officers and anonymous individuals - the perpetuated myth of an army crowned with glory, touching on nearly a century of military defeats, summary executions, purges and abuses of troops.
P.S. Both episodes are first class, in excellent picture quality, both parts are recommended for viewers over 16 years of age only.
P.S.S. It is always amazing, that all these documentaries are simply consumed without a single comment.
