The quintessential bloodthirsty tyrant and evil genius, Joseph Stalin, massacred millions of Soviet subjects during three decades as dictator, yet played a critical role in manipulating his Western allies and German enemies during the 1940s. Film maker Laurence Rees based this impressive BBC series on Stalin's actual conversations with Franklin Roosevelt, Winston Churchill, and Nazi fuhrer Adolf Hitler, and their far-reaching consequences.

Finally a series that focuses on the Polish WWII struggle. As a Pole living in US for quite some time now, it always deeply touches me (in a bad way) when Americans assume that Poland somehow choose to be a communist state and to be part of soviet union's sphere of influence after WWII. This series shows exactly how much polish people always struggled and fought against both Nazis as well as Soviets and why we are so obsessed with history and defending the country which has always had the worst possible geo-political location in the entire Europe, between two tyrants. I still can't understand why American administration couldn't believe that Soviets were doing these things in Poland. In 1920 Poland was in a war with then early soviet Russia and Poland stopped a massive soviet invasion of Europe. Poland won that war, so there shouldn't be any surprise on Roosevelt's part that when Russians in 1939 and in the whole WWII jumped on a chance to wipe out Polish population and the country itself.

Good, but misleading.

Interesting! It is about time that the fate of Poland during World War II has been shown to the public . However, any history buff will tell you that the Molotov - Ribbentrop Pact,...Read complete review

Interesting! It is about time that the fate of Poland during World War II has been shown to the public . However, any history buff will tell you that the Molotov - Ribbentrop Pact, discussed in this documentary, included also the Baltic States, Finland and Bessarabia. Unforgivable omission by Reese. Let us hope Reese corrects the omission by doing another documentary.

Let Truth be told !!!

Comments about PBS World War II: Behind Closed Doors - 2PK DVD:

This film summarizes and brings to light many facts about World War II politics which were hidden away from the public's awareness for way too long. I hope many watch it and realize what WWII was really about. Congratulations to everyone involved in making this documentary. Thank you PBS for airing this film. I hope that more of such "real" movies be produced about World War II so that the history on the subject becomes more accurate.
