Uses documenary footage, photographs, and reminiscences of individuals involved

Russia's spirit of fight was incredible to her adversaries. With twenty million military and civilian casualities, she stood firm. One German officer tells of repulsing a Soviet attack in 35-degree-below zero weather: "The Soviet soldiers remained motionless about two hours lying in the snow, and in the evening they again attacked with the same spirit." Incredibly, the Russians not only survived but went on to rout the Germans

In the land of Nod by Hubert Butler ( Book )
2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In The Land of Nod is the fourth and final volume of Hubert Butler's essays and crowns a remarkable literary odyssey. As Neal Ascherson writes: 'When the first collection appeared in 1985 he was already an old man/ His fame began to spread across his native Ireland and then across the world. By the time of his death in 1991 readers throughout Europe and America were asking in amazement why he had not been part of their common culture before.' This final offering contains some of Butler's most characteristic and revealing work. Its subjets are, variously, literature, language and religion
