Product Description:

Antony Beevor’s Stalingrad is a harrowing look at one of history’s darkest moments.

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.

‘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

‘A brilliantly researched tour de force of military history’ Sarah Bradford, The Times

Antony Beevor is the renowned author of Stalingrad, which won the Samuel Johnson Prize, the Wolfson Prize for History and the Hawthornden Prize for Literature, and Berlin, which received the first Longman-History Today Trustees’ Award. His books have sold nearly four million copies.

A fantastic read, in fact it's a must read for anyone interested in history or war.
Wonder if Trump has read it?
Only 2 million casualties! The Siege of Leningrad was no walk in the park either! Not in terms of casualties, but for sheer horror. Agree the book's a must read. What happens when two powerful psychopaths butt heads.
Highly recommended. Hot
One of the best books ever written. Can't recommend this enough.
Excellent book, i really need to read anthony beavers other war books.
Great book and deal
I read half of it about 10 years ago. For many reasons, I left it about a year before I picked it up again and found it impossible to get back into. I still have the paperback and intend to give it another go one day. For 99p I think I will buy this on Kindle, as i will be more likely to read it than I would be reading the paperback.

My favourite book on WW2 is "The Rise & Fall of the Third Reich". A great book detailing the lead up to the war and what happened during.
