Battle of StalingradThe Battle of Stalingrad, perceived by historians as the most important battle of World War II and regarded by Russians as the most significant battle in their country's history, cannot be viewed solely as a military engagement between two powerful, long-time foes. The Soviet Union, which had climbed to power from the shambles of the 1917 Revolution tha Battle of StalingradThe Battle of Stalingrad, perceived by historians as the most important battle of World War II and regarded by Russians as the most significant battle in their country's history, cannot be viewed solely as a military engagement between two powerful, long-time foes. The Soviet Union, which had climbed to power from the shambles of the 1917 Revolution that saw communism overthrow the czar, and Germany, which had risen from the ashes of World War I's Treaty of Versailles, certainly had a complicated history. Stalingrad was a battle between the Allies and the Axis Powers; it was a struggle between the Soviet Union and Germany for victory; and it was also a test of wills between Josef Stalin and Adolf Hitler, two totalitarian dictators who were willing to do whatever was necessary to demonstrate the supremacy of their systems of government. Inside you will read about...✓ Josef Stalin: Man of Steel ✓ Adolf Hitler: A Quest for Vengeance ✓ Operation Barbarossa ✓ The Stalingrad Street Fighting Academy ✓ The Heroes of Stalingrad And much more! Stalin had succeeded Vladimir Lenin as the leader of the Soviet Union, and his entry upon the world stage ushered in a reign of absolute power as he bent a battered nation to conform to his will. Adolf Hitler, leader of the National Socialist German Workers Party, was elected chancellor of Germany in 1933 and promptly turned the beleaguered nation into a launch pad for Aryan domination. As their armies met at Stalingrad for a long and bloody struggle that would ultimately tally two million civilian and military casualties, the world would watch as two brutal regimes challenged one another while the fate of the free world hung in the balance.

    A good book, gives basic knowledge about the siege of Stalingard. It might be great book if they have added some photos. A enjoyable read.

    The battle that proved to be the turning point during the second World War and the one that lasted much longer than expected has been outlined through a fascinating narrative in the book.

    (Kindle Ed., p. 33) ...Life in Stalingrad was a nightmare for the soldiers and civilians as the city was reduced to rubble. Bodies rotted, and the smell of decomposing corpses hung over the city. Disease became rampant. The noise from the Stuka dive bombers and Katyusha rockets created a grim orchestra of war. It was a scenario that challenged the stamina and even the sanity of all who endured it...

It was a scenario that challenged the stamina and even the sanity of all who endured it... You cannot stop an army which has done Stalingrad. — Russian saying Off the beginning, the book needs an editing. Chapter 2 is just great, definitely worth reading. The opening lines read pretty crude, and they still need to be refined as the book is on the market with its price tag on it. I don't know; maybe I'm reading an old edition, but anyways it's got quite a rough start, and I do feel like the book needs another editing work. Yet, the book's got great lines with useful information. (Kindle Ed., pp. 40-42) ...Now that the unbeatable German Army had been defeated, Germany would be fighting a defensive war...had the Battle of Stalingrad gone the other way, the outcome of the war might have been very different... 1. The book depicts the progress of the war and battles along with the meaning and significance of the Battle of Stalingrad. 2. The book presents very precise info that helps the readers understand the situation of Soviet army when the German invasion commenced. It just needs the final editing work because, despite the quality of detailed information well-organized in such a short length, it appears incomplete with many typos and lines pretty rough to read. By the way, is it just me or the following lines do remind us of someone else in Beijing today (Kindle Ed., pp. 18-19)? ...Suppression of opposition, machinations, and violence all paved Hitler’s path to power. One of the casualties of his rise included the German military; officers who disagreed with his determination to be ready for war by 1938 were blackmailed and forced to resign. Twenty-eight generals lost command, forty-four others were transferred, although their only fault may have been that they failed to exhibit sufficient Nazi credentials. Hitler took the title of commander-in-chief, making himself the leader of the military...

    History of a battle I didn't know. I wish history could be written as it is here. In school we learned dates of battles not interesting facts. One such interesting fact was that I thought Hitler and his wife just committed suicide. Read this book to find out the rest. I don't want to spoil your read. History of a battle I didn't know.

    Brief History... This subject about The Battle of Stalingrad has too many sides and aspects to do it justice with the amount of words available. Good try though. The writer also jumped around chronologically too much. It made it kind of confusing trying to keep track correctly.

    Very quick read but full of knowledge of the siege of Stalingrad. The writer shows us what the Russian army was up against and how Germany kept breaking their word. The writer jumped all over the place with the facts that made the book very confusing.

    Volgograd A terrible and tragic battle for everyone. Atrocities on both sides. I feel that it should have stayed with the subject and not meandered into the Battle of Berlin and the Cold War.

    Stalingrad A very informative book. It really spells out what the Russian army was up against. And through long hard fighting and hunger they were able to defend Stalingrad. A very good hourly book for people who want to learn more of WWII history.

    Incredible! The author framed a time great lost coupled by the account of people who were ready to give up all for their country! Right or wrong!

    One of the nicer reads of what was the turning point of world war 2. Gives good details of Stalins expectations, Germans not keeping their word and how the siege was handled by the Russians

    I am glad that I read it! Provides a nice lead up to WWII but too much biography of Adolf Hitler. This important battle is not covered very well in general high school and college history classes.
