First published in 2005, this a reprint of that lavishly illustrated guide to the crucial seven days that defined the war on the Eastern Front.
If you need something a little easier to digest than some of the weightier tomes on this subject then this is it. As well as the detailed descriptions of the key locations and the fighting for them, there are maps, posters, illustrations of guns and aeroplanes, plus copious colour photography. With quotes from soldiers on both sides, and highlights on the notable figures, this is an excellent guide to the battle of Stalingrad.
