World War Two: 1941 and the Man of Steel

Available on My5
Marking the 70th anniversary of the Nazi invasion of the Soviet Union in 1941, historian David Reynolds re-assesses Stalin's role in the struggle between Germany and Russia in World War II, which, he argues, was more critical for British survival than the Battle of Britain. Stalin means `man of steel', but Reynolds shows how the reality of Stalin's war in 1941 did not live up to that name.
