  • Such a Story Jan 10, 2013
    by Orangulu

    Beevor is a well respected historian, and in using Soviet and German archives he has written a definitive history of this horrific and epic battle. One GREAT read!

    by Andrew M

    A thoroughly enjoyable read of a balananced account of one of the most significant battles of WW11. It deals with the strategic issues of those in command and the personal experiences of the combatants. My only small criticism would be in view of the importance of geography, easier access to maps would have been appreciated

    In this book, master military historian, Antony Beevor, applies his proven technique of matching opposing units' battle journals by date and time to reconstruct the clashes of the battles in vivid color and detail. One can smell the gun smoke and burning flesh, He includes incidents picked from those journals to provide astonishing realism. He also provides the political intrigue which drove the commanders to demand the ultimate from their soldiers. He makes maximum use of recenly released archives to add great depth to his accounts.

    This book about Stalingrad is extremely well-researched and is also extremely well-written. I would highly recommend it to anyone interested in the subject.

    The battle for Stalingrad was one of the most critical and horrific battles of World War II, yet is little known in the United States. The author presents a well researched history of the battle, including heretofore secret Russian documents, but also incledes first hand accounts of those who fought from the German and Russian point of view. The book provides a very graphic view of the horrible conditions of the soldiers and civilians caught up in this cataclymic event, but also gives the reader insight into how and why this battle was fought, and the terrible consequences it delivered to both sides. I think this book is definately a "must read" for anyone wishing to understand the Twentieth Century and the costs the terrible price that is paid when leaders drag their countries into war.
