This is a chronological account of the battle that inflicted a heavy defeat on the German Wehrmacht. With the aid of full color maps and first hand accounts, the book explains how the Germans initially made vast territorial conquests during the opening phases of Operation Blue, their 1942 offensive in southern Russia. But then the Sixth Army was drawn into a war of attrition in the rubble of Stalingrad, where the mobility and firepower of the panzers counted for nothing.
