DESCRIPTION: The publisher has been releasing a number of books by Soviet 
veterans and Russian historians, smoothly translated and supported by maps and 
photographs rarely seen before. This book paints a vivid picture of life in and 
around Stalingrad during the epic siege. – Very Highly Recommended.

The story of the Battle of Stalingrad has been told many times from the Soviet and 
German viewpoints. This book offers fresh insights, gained from access to Soviet 
archives that are now opening to historians. The siege progressed only because Hitler 
and Stalin had invested so much in the ownership of a Russian city named for the 
Soviet Leader. The Germans came close to winning but they were at the end of a long 
supply line and their military option of withdrawal and counter attack was denied by 
Hitler's orders to fight to the last man.

There is much new information that was not previously available. Although it doesn't 
change the well trodden key elements of the fight, it adds very valuable depth and 
some twists and turns. The story is highly important in WWII history because, with 
the British desert victory at El Alamein, it marked the point at which the Germans 
were moved steadily onto the back foot and eventual defeat.
