Plot synopsis
This film is dedicated to the legendary regiment "Normandy - Neman" (Normandie - Niémen). This is a French fighter aviation regiment that fought on the Soviet-German front. In particular, he took part in the Battle of Kursk in 1943 and the Belarusian operation in 1944.
The history of this regiment is a vivid example of the valor and mutual support that people provided to each other despite their cultural and political differences. The memory of the Normandie-Niemen fighters was maintained in the Soviet Union. In 1960, a Soviet-French film about this regiment was released, museums dedicated to it were opened in schools. It is very important to remember him today.
