Product Description

Review

'A gripping account . . . told with verve and scholarship' (Andrew Roberts)

Praise for STALINGRAD and LENINGRAD by Michael Jones - (:)

'A milestone in the treatment of the battle ... highly effective and utterly captivating. Previous accounts have been unable to fully convey the desperate ferocity of the battle. Now we see it in all its horror - and better understand the courage of Stalingrad's defenders. This is the finest history of its type published to date' (David Glanz)

'Where the book stands out is in the portrait of ordinary life in extraordinary circumstances ... Fluently written ... the uniquely terrible experience of suffering, especially of 1941-2, is effectively described' (BBC History)

'A tribute to the resilience of the human spirit' (HERALD)

'A mass of first-person material that has been cleverly assembled to paint a striking picture' (BBC History Magazine)

Book Description

The thrilling history of the turning point of the Second World War, when Hitler's armies were halted on the Eastern Front
