The 'SOVIET STORM' series is a made for Russian TV documentary.
Its divided into installments, so one can pick and choose according to ones field of interest...or just watch them all.
One might call it 'history light' - what ever ones opinion, its entertaining and interesting IMO.
There is a good deal of acting to make for a good flow and also a good deal of animation (for example planes in the air war segment), but not only are the uniforms interesting, there is also the occasional glimpse of military hardware and as mentioned a good flow in regards to narration.
The series include installments on (in no particular order):

War against Japan

...and several more.
No doubt much will seem like a repetition to old hands and indeed many will know the history described, but this is made relatively recently (2011), with Russian eyes, ditto equipment and mind set hence interesting IMO.
I thought it interesting and occasionally one might be surprised; I was just watching a segment, where the storm on Fort Winiary in Poznan/Posen was mentioned. I'd never head of that fort before, so yet another trip to Poznan might be in order.
Sorge we know about, but who has heard about Pyotr Pryadkin?
In the segment about 'The Secret War,' I found mention of the infiltrator Pyotr Pryadkin and his actions very interesting to say the least...and so on and so forth.
Series commentary is in ENGLISH (map names of course in Cyrillic, but that is a minor detail).
