The story of the birth and growth of the Red Army.
By Leo Condon and Robert Barr.
A young Russian, just back from reporting for service with the Red Army, is at his home on seventy-two hours' leave with his mother, his father - a regular soldier, a Colonel of the Red Army who fought at Stalingrad - and his uncle, one of the old Red Guard of revolutionary days who served under Stalin at Tsaritsyn (Stalingrad). Through these typical Russians the programme traces the story of the Red Army to the present day.
