Soviet Storm is epic television history of the Second World War's Eastern Front. Originally produced for Russian television, it gives an unprecedented eastern perspective on the war's most decisive and bloody theater, all depicted through stunning computer-generated imagery and reconstructions.

It was a conflict of staggering scale and savagery. Four out of five German soldiers killed in World War Two died on the Eastern Front. The Red Army suffered ten times as many dead as the Western Allies combined. The total dead on all sides was more than 30 million, most of them civilians. The war was seen by both sides as a struggle for existence. It meant that both Hitler and Stalin were prepared to accept losses on any scale to achieve final victory.

Soviet Storm tells the story of this titanic clash of arms blow by blow. Across 18 episodes we explore some of the largest and most dramatic battles of history, from the murderous fighting amidst the ruins of Stalingrad to the horrors of the Siege of Leningrad, to the roaring of tank engines across the Russian steppe at the Battle of Kursk. We take close-up looks at the key personalities and decisive weapons of the war, including legendary tanks like the T-34 and the Tiger, and lesser known Soviet weapons including the B-5 howitzer ('Stalin's Sledgehammer') and the Ilyushin 2 ('The Flying Tank').
