Fortress Of War tells the story of the heroic defence of the Brest fortress in Belarus that was assaulted by the Nazi's on the morning of June 22nd 1941.
Totally outnumbered in soldiers and weapons, the citizens of Brest fought to the bitter end for twenty-nine endless days. The events that took place in the first days of the invasion are depicted with documentary accuracy, the characters are real. Featuring unique footage of that time and the involvement of the few veterans who survived the battle, Fortress Of War is a large scale war saga depicting a heart-wrenching story of bravery and self-sacrifice. The spirit of the film is best summed up by the legend scrawled on the wall of one of the vaults: "I WILL DEFEND TO THE DEATH!"
