Panfilov's 28 Guardsmen and The Battle of Moscow *Without Music*
The Battle of Moscow was truly epic in scope, and represented a desperate effort by a people defending their homeland. One of the great legends of the battle- the brave last stand of Panfilov’s Twenty-Eight Guardsmen, stands as a symbol of the sacrifice of the soldiers of the Red Army in the Great Patriotic War, and the story of that legend raises unique questions about the nature of heroism, and the importance of legends themselves.
