The dramatic story of the epic battle for a city that was to cost over a million lives.
The complete story of two of the most decisive battles fought during World War II. In 'The Road to Stalingrad' in August 1942, Hitler's huge Sixth Army reached the City that bore Stalin's name. In the five month siege that followed the Russians fought to hold Stalingrad at any cost. Then, in an astonishing reversal, the Russian army encircled and trapped their Nazi enemy. In 'The Road to Berlin' the Germans had repulsed every Russian attempt to drive across the Oder river to Berlin. However during early April, Stalin concentrated a tremendous force between Stettin and Breslau in preparation for a final blow against Germany. This is the fascinating story of the night the Russian army finally struck on April 16th. No one in Berlin had any hope of stopping the massive Russian offensive.
