Stalingrad: Memories and Reassessments


320pp, 700g packed to post - faults? dj has a sunned L shape, book o/w in great order. Stalingrad: Memories and Reassessments >>> Hitler's greatest blunder, many experts agree, was his attempt to conquer Stalingrad and deny Russia the Volga River as a trade route. The most famous analysis of these ill-fated events, translated into English for the first time, features new revisions. Much more than a routine account of battle, here is a stunning review of the motivations, misplaced principles, and misguided claims that led to one of the most disastrous defeats in history. Reviews>>> I would highly recommend this book. Of 300,000 German soldiers trapped in the Stalingrad pocket only 91,000 were alive when they were finally overun by the Russians. Of these only 5000 made in back to Germany years after the war ended. The author was one of those survivors, who at the time was a junior officer.
