Сражение (Srazhenie) is a Russian version of Battleground, a short story by Stephen King that originally appeared in the collection SKELETON CREW. Renshaw is a professional hit-man who returns from his assassination of a toy-maker to find a package delivered to his penthouse apartment. The package contains a G.I. Joe Vietnam Footlocker, sent to him by the mother of the toy-maker he had recently killed. When he opens the package he finds that the toy soldiers are alive with working copies (albeit miniature) of weapons, jeeps, and helicopters. To Renshaw’s surprise the tiny soldiers begin to attack him.

The Russian animation adaption (Сражение), is amazing and brilliant.  Сражение was created by the (then) Soviet Kievnauchfilm studio in 1986, directed by Mikhail Titov.
