'Captivating . . . Jingoistic statues never pay a proper tribute to the dead, but honest books, like this one, certainly do' (Vitali Vitaliev Guardian)
A brilliantly researched tour de force of military history (Sarah Bradford The Times)
A superb re-telling. Beevor combines a soldier's understanding of war's realities with the narrative techniques of a novelist . . . This is a book that lets the reader look into the face of battle (Orlando Figes Sunday Telegraph)
Antony Beevor's account of this historic turning-point is truly powerful, written with a compelling narrative drive . . . This is a fine achievement (David Pryce-Jones Daily Mail)
In October 1942, a panzer officer wrote 'Stalingrad is no longer a town...Animals flee this hell; the hardest stones cannot bear it for long; only men endure'. The battle for Stalingrad became the focus of Hitler and Stalin's determination to win the gruesome, vicious war on the eastern front. The citizens of Stalingrad endured unimaginable hardship; the battle, with fierce hand-to-hand fighting in each room of each building, was brutally destructive to both armies. But the eventual victory of the Red Army, and the failure of Hitler's Operation Barbarossa, was the first defeat of Hitler's territorial ambitions in Europe, and the start of his decline. An extraordinary story of tactical genius, civilian bravery, obsession, carnage and the nature of war itself, Stalingrad will act as a testament to the vital role of the soviet war effort.See all Product description

I found this book riveting and totally engaging. Well done to Anthony Beevor.
The detailed accounts from both sides is gut wrenching from the perspective of the common soldier, the complete contempt for life is brought out for all readers to see.
If you weren't' aware of Hitler's downfall you will be after this, compelling reading throughout.
