Scenes of Soviet forces preparing for battle in Leningrad, Russia against the siege by German forces during World War 2. A large procession of Soviet soldiers walking in the snow near the Palace Square. They proceed past the Narva Triumphal Gate. A contingent of uniformed soldiers marches by the gate. A group of soldiers kneels at the tombstone of 18th Century Russian Generalissimo Alexander Vasilyevich Suvorov, famous for never losing a battle. One soldier kisses a revolver. Outside in the snow, Russian troops assemble before a flag being the image of Lenin. The soldiers all kneel as past glories are recounted (brief clips of fictional films showing Russian heroes like Alexander Nevsky and others). The Soviet soldiers stand again and march, singing, in the snow. Ordinary citizens march in the snow towards the Narva Triumphal Arch or Gate. Russian troops in uniform march past the Gate. One Russian soldier pulls a sled behind him. A large contingent of ski troops marches, carrying snow skis over their shoulders, followed by a contingent of paratroopers, in winter white camouflage jump suits. More Soviet soldiers in white camouflage march carrying snow skis.
