The Unknown War is an American documentary television series, detailing the drama of the Eastern European front. It covers the period of history from June 1941, when Germany launched its surprise attack on Russia, to the end of WWII.

The series is hosted by Academy Award Winner Burt Lancaster, who spent three weeks in eight cities in Russia, for location filming. Film footage from Soviet archives comprises a major portion of the series, supplemented by film from both the United States and British archives.

The Unknown War is a sprawling, 20-part documentary history in film of the World War II conflict between Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union. Each episode is about 48 minutes long, similar in format to The World at War. The footage was edited from over 3.5 million feet of film taken by Soviet camera crews from the first day of the war, 22 June 1941, to the Soviet entry into Berlin in May 1945. Most of these films have never been seen outside this documentary series.

Produced with Soviet cooperation after the release of The World at War, which the Soviet government felt paid insufficient attention to their part in World War II. Released in 1978, The Unknown War is sympathetic to the Soviet struggle against Nazi Germany.
