There's very little context here. We are directly placed into what appears to be a battlefront theatre between Bears (ostensibly representing pre soviet Russia) and the monkeys ( whom the title suggests were storm troopers from Imperial Germany). These storm troops were trained as shock infantry who employed precision infiltration tactics that seems visually representative of what happened in the movie.

I suspect that this short film was extremely anti-war in its message. In an environment of the world still suffering from the consequences of the first world war, we have a short that describes the eastern front of trench warfare between the the Russian Empire ...

Special note: this appears to be a two episode show. For it stops with a the end notice only to resume. Something to keep note of.

No story per-say more action. A story would have plot. This just tells what you see not really focusing on the w's:who, what, when,why. A more elaborated introduction would be needed if the goal of this film was to provide a message. Ending of the film was appropriate.
