    This YouTube link is for a series of Russian-made (in English) TV animated/stock footage/dramatization programs each about 45 minutes long, (no commercials), that cover every major aspect of the eastern front from Barbarossa to August Storm. Of course they're "propaganda" (made in 2011) but the footage and enactments are very well done. The program devoted to the Naval War is especially interesting. Conspicuously missing is any Lend Lease equipment (except Studebaker 6x6's with Katushkas). Nonetheless ..... better watching than anything I'm seeing on History TV since Dog Fights and Tank Battles stopped. Highly recommended:

    [Edit: The Caucasus show credits Lend Lease Boston bombers and American and British tanks delivered from Iran]
    [Edit: The Air War show briefly credits Bell Airocobras in the Kuban]
