The battle of Stalingrad was a battle that the Germans need not have fought. The 
rapidly advancing German Armies had a primary mission to reach the rich Caucasus 
oilfields to sustain their war. The Generals planned to bypass Stalingrad as a 
standard blitz krieg tactic, relying on siege and aerial bombardment to contain and 
reduce the city. Hitler became fixated on taking the city and Stalin became equally 
fixated on holding and relieving it, at enormous cost to both sides.

This book collects and presents the experiences of Red Army soldiers, German 
soldiers and Soviet civilians. It was an intense and brutal battle, fought without 
quarter. At its end, the city was destroyed and the German 6th Army surrendered. 
The accounts include never-before-published material from German and KGB 
archives, with many rare photographs in illustration.

This is a must read for any WWII military history enthusiast.
