Stalingrad


The Battle of Stalingrad was one of the most important clashes of the Second World War and arguably the bloodiest. Epitomised by close combat fighting and heavy losses (both military and civilian), neither the Soviets or the Nazis were prepared to capitulate to their ideological enemies.

The Axis forces were eventually defeated by the Russian war machine, despite withdrawing many troops from the West to fight in the East and losing a significant proportion of the Wehrmacht.

Pen & Sword Books covers the fighting with a wide range titles, which give an extensive insight into this notoriously bitter battle.
