DESCRIPTION: A new addition to the very popular Images of War Series. 
This volume provides a graphic picture of the campaign that marked 
the beginning of the end for Germany. As with other volumes in this 
series, its great strength is the quality and rarity of the images 
that illustrate to concise text, all at a very aggressive cover 
price – Highly Recommended.

Until Stalingrad, the Germans had been advancing at an amazing speed 
into the vastness of the Soviet Union. All the signs were that they 
were on course to repeat the enormous successes on the Western Front 
in 1940. After the surrender of German troops in Stalingrad, the 
German advances were brought to a halt but they failed to identify 
the Soviet preparations to exploit this turn of events and take the 
war to the Germans.

The text is descriptive, but the eloquence is in the images. These 
display the men and equipment in this epic struggle of ideologies 
and show the conditions in which men must survive and weapons 
function.

In these pages is charted the downhill ride of a previously 
invincible German army. As the Germans were forced back, they faced 
dwindling resources, particularly a shortage of fuel, and a failure 
of German factories to shrug of the Anglo-American bombing with the 
consequential shortages of equipment and delays to the introduction 
of new types of weapon.
