    Panfilov's 28 Men Gritty Russian War movie at the Battle of Moscow

    A pretty gritty War movie taking place in 1941 during the battle of Moscow during WW II

    A lot of unreal anti Tank action and some great close ups of early War Russian small arms..

    There are monuments in Russia for the 28 who were to have all died as well as accounts of this battle in the Day.. But as so often
    happens some may be lies and may not have happen as reported.. regardless a hell of a movie. And alot of the funding for the movie
    took place with Crowdfunding.

    I'm happy to have chipped in a few rubles to help out when they were crowdfunding the making of the film. And it is indeed an entertaining film, but I would have liked it better if it had actually been even loosely based upon a real story... rather than one fabricated purely for propaganda:

    An investigation by Soviet authorities was carried out in 1948 and since declassified, revealed that the story of the 28 was a fabrication. The claimed German casualties were not confirmed in German or Soviet operational documents and the Germans fulfilled their day's objectives well before the end of the day.[1] Not all the twenty eight were killed six of the soldiers were still alive. One of them was arrested in 1947 on charges of high treason and confessed to having "voluntarily" surrendered to German troops and to having later joined a German police force.[2][3][4] The findings were kept secret and the Twenty-Eight Guardsmen remained national heroes.
