5.0 out of 5 stars An account of war at its most chilling, 18 Oct 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Stalingrad (Paperback)
In this masterpiece of non-fiction Beevor has captured the sheer tragedy and horror of the most decisive battle in the Second World War.
Researching and collating letters written from soldiers of all ranks to their families during the six-month battle brings a new dimension to the storytelling of this epic struggle. How Beevor entwines excerpts from these letters into the narrative is exceptional, revealing the true thoughts of the Russian soldiers doomed in the besieged city to the German soldiers eventual realisation that they were being left as a sacrifice by their Furher.
Beevor gives the reader a glancing insight into the political leaders stubborn control of the battle and the eventual effect that the conclusion had on their futures and the remainder of the 20th century.
If you only ever buy one book on the Eastern Front then this should be the one.
