Description

The Battle of Stalingrad was not only the psychological turning point of World War II: it also changed the face of modern warfare Beevor's latest book"Ardennes 1944: The Battle of the Bulge"is now available from Viking Books Historians and reviewers worldwide have hailed Antony Beevor's magisterial" Stalingrad" as the definitive account of World War II's most harrowing battle. In August 1942, Hitler's huge Sixth Army reached the city that bore Stalin's name. In the five-month siege that followed, the Russians fought to hold Stalingrad at any cost; then, in an astonishing reversal, encircled and trapped their Nazi enemy. This battle for the ruins of a city cost more than a million lives. Stalingrad conveys the experience of soldiers on both sides, fighting in inhuman conditions, and of civilians trapped on an urban battlefield. Antony Beevor has itnerviewed survivors and discovered completely new material in a wide range of German and Soviet archives, including prisoner interrogations and reports of desertions and executions. As a story of cruelty, courage, and human suffering, "Stalingrad" is unprecedented and unforgettable."
