What are people saying?

  • THE APOLL0's rating of the film The Battle of Russia

    Useful examination of successful propaganda media that was able to promote the continued voluntary participation, consent, and support of the population in the war effort. Also hilarious from an American perspective when U.S. government departments are heaping endless praise on "the brave soldiers of the great Soviet Military" and "our friend and ally Joseph Stalin" and so on in context of latter cold war rhetoric.
