See also catalog # 496489, 523474, 523475, 523477 A superb Soviet propaganda documentary glorifying the Marxist-Leninist government of Afghanistan and the Soviet occupation there, as well as condemning the Muslim rebel movement (from both Pakistan & Afghanistan), effectively calling them paid goons and puppets of the imperialist United States, which they were. This film is especially of note in light of the events of 9/11/2001.
