Opening scene shows Russian soldiers in ruins of Stalingrad, with captured German combat films. A soldier hold up a film and looks at some of the images, upon which the scene changes to the captured German film, itself, showing German troops in the midst of destroyed and damaged Soviet buildings, during the Battle of Stalingrad, in World War 2. . A German field artillery piece fires, and black smoke rises from the area. A formation of German Messerschmitt Bf 109s is seen. Then bombs are shown dropping from a bomber (unseen). German Tiger tanks advance across a plain. German artillerymen look through binoculars. A periscopic binocular is on a tripod nearby. A German soldier, standing at a height, next to a smoke stack, observes huge fires burning in the distance. A German officer leads several hatless German soldiers. Scene switches to post-siege, as Soviet troops are dealing with aftermath. A mortuary team in protective clothing is disposing of the body of a fallen German soldier. A group of wounded Russian soldiers is being moved in a wagon, by medics. Civilians in Stalingrad read notices posted on a bulletin board. Soviet workmen probe rubble (perhaps for survivors). A buried shell explodes sending white smoke aloft. A destroyed anti-aircraft gun sits in rubble, with destroyed and damaged buildings in background. Skeletons of buildings are all that is left in some places. A hand written sign is posted addressed to "Mama!"
