The "Eastern Front" includes all territories from Eastern Poland to Russia.

I include not only feature films but also TV-Series and Mini-Series.

This list is a work in progress. I'll add more movies and eye candy (pictures). I decided to publish it at the 70th anniversary of the end of WWII.

This is the third list of a series about World War II movies.
