Enemy at the Gates is a feature film dramatizing the Battle of Stalingrad (WP). The production crew were British and American. Anti-Soviet undertones undermine the film's authenticity. Russian veterans that fought at the battle were dismayed enough at the film as to ask for it to be banned. The following is a list outlining major inaccuracies
  • Vasily Zaytsev is an actual character but Major Konig is fictionalized.
  • In the beginning, trains did not run with locked doors, they were left open in case of air raids
  • Red Army soldiers were not grabbed from trains, in a herded fashion, they were organized into units
  • They did not cross the river during the day, it was at night
  • There was no rifle shortage
  • There were no human wave attacks, they were sent by units and were trained
  • Khrushchev is seen as having a major commanding role, whereas he had little to do with the battle. Unseen are Chuikov, Yeremenko, and Rodimtsev
  • Tanya Chernova was not Jewish and was blonde
  • Stalin's order of "Not a step backward" is exaggerated
