Primarily a biographical documentary about the military career of Alexander Vasilvich Suvorov, who was Field Marshal of the armies of Catherine the Great and Czar Paul I. After many military successes during the reign of Catherine, General Suvorov broke with her successor, Paul I, the Mad Emperor, over questions regarding army policy. He went into retirement and wrote The Science of Victory, containing maxims such as Swiftness of movement accompanies victory, and the real general is he who defeats the enemy before reaching him. The czar recalled Suvorov to become the leader of the joint armies of Russia and Austria against Napoleon.
