THE BREST FORTRESS Before dawn on June 22, 1941, the Germans laid siege on the Brest Fortress and thought they would have her in less than an hour, but the Soviets bravely defended her for 29 days. Surviving defenders and computer reconstructions re-create the first heroic hard fought days of battle. "We shall die, but shall not leave the fortress." THE ELBE DAY On April 27, 1945, Russian and American troops joined hands at the River Elbe in Germany and brought the end of the war one step closer. It became a symbolic day in history, but the events of the day became blurred by memories, rumours and political espionage. The truth is revealed and lies debunked by archival footage shot by Soviet, American, British and French cameramen.
