The Unknown War
- 1 Season
The Unknown War is a television series focusing on the part that Russia played in the events of World War Two, conceived and executed as a means to offer a counter-view to the pervasive, heavily Western perspective that tends to overshadow all other depictions of events from that period of global history. Using footage captured by the USSR's Central Documentary Film Studio, the series explores the often unseen fronts that comprise Russia's part in the second World War. The lives lost and the victories of the Russian Army are presented in a singularly pointed manner, but no more or less pointed than the same Western presentations that are so easily accepted as the whole of the story.
