The 6th series of the documentary project "On and Underwater" tells about the Soviet navywho managed to show serious resistance to the fascist invaders.

    When Kerch was liberated in 1943, the paratroopers under the command of Gladkov's penitentiary did such miracles, passing through the German defense practically "at knives" and seizing the dominant position - Mount Mithridates, that the advancing troops did not even know how to use it - they were not ready ... not quite in the subject, but still ..

    In the 78th year there was a documentary series "The Great Patriotic War", also known as "Unknown War". Why not show it yet, at one time made a very strong impression.

      An excellent film, I remember it very well. It was created together with the Americans, the idea was to tell the US public about who actually broke Hitler's neck. It was hosted by actor Bert Lancaster. And the name "Unknown War in the East", as far as I remember.

        Well, yes, but on our part, if I'm not mistaken, Vasily Lanovoi commented.

      For current, this is not politically correct. There, probably about the role of the party and government, about Stalin and the USSR. With red banners without tricolors.

    It would be necessary to show at the history lessons about the neo-cross campaign of Europe.

    There are no trenches in the sea, you can’t hide anywhere, and nowhere to retreat. There is only either you or you.

      Sailors and on land worked wonders. Black pea jackets - black death.

    The film is very good.
    But why such an article title?
    Little-known pages of the exploits of Soviet sailors during the Second World War

    Especially on Topwar it looks strange.
    For me, for example, the unknown in the film did not find anything. But he looked with pleasure.
    And read the credits. I was glad about the involvement of Zakhar Prilepin.

    It's time to write a complete history of the Second World War without embellishment and striking out using previously archived materials and diaries of military leaders.

    Submariners, boatmen, icebreaker, transport: where is the Fleet? Netuti! And now not. Mosquito Fleet of the "Great Sea Power". It's a shame ... It's a shame for Russia - the oceans are too much for her.

    watched a movie.
    About how sailors fought on land - it is known (batteries, infantry)
    About naval convoys - it is known (but there are few actions of Soviet sailors there, the coverage area was small, and there were few ships).
    About the actions of torpedo boats, and on lakes and rivers, it is known. (heroic page)
    About how mediocre our submariners fought - it’s also known (1-3 weather submarines didn’t).
    About marine aviation - it’s better not to write. There were no successes.
    Where is the fleet? Where are the battles? The author did not debunk myths. He simply showed that under the conditions of the Second World War the fleet played only the transport and landing component. Without any influence and contact with the krighsmarine.
