About the Author: All soviet movies on RVISION


  1. Can anyone famiiar with the Russian Civil War tell me why it didn't devolve into trench warfare with massive artillery batteries on both sides? Or perhaps it did, and I just have never seen that sort of warfare depicted in any of the films or documentaries? It would seem that in the wake of the Great War, the Western-backed White Army could have easily brought in tons of heavy artillery and the Red Army could have found a fair amount themselves. Instead, this war seems to be a partisan war or guerrilla war with relatively few, if any, major battles.

    As for the "debates" that often follow these sorts of films, I'll make the observation that the first side that joins ranks with foreign imperialists loses the argument. At that point, that side becomes the invading army and the other side is defending the homeland. There could be patriotic Russians fighting on both sides who just disagree about politics, but once you invite the scavengers in to fight with you, you are in no position to take the moral high ground.
