Soviet Storm is the unimaginable Russian perspective of the Second World War. This was the war's most bloody and yet decisive part of the war. This conflict was so mind boggling on such an unbelievable scale of brutal savagery that four of every five Germans killed in WWII died on just the Russian Front alone. However, in total the Russians lost ten times as many people than the Western Allies combined. This epic story begins with the German invasion called Operation Barbarossa which began in June 1941 (which was the largest military operation in history), through the savage fighting just outside the very gates of Moscow, to the bloody street-fighting of Stalingrad, and the long, blood drenched road to Berlin.

Germany has without question lost World War II in Europe, but Hitler, by now a heavily medicated and deluded character, refuses to give up hope; he orders the roughly one million German soldiers left in the ruined city to defend Berlin, now a strange mix of combat veterans, teenage boys from the Hitler Youth, and old men from the People's Army.
