After years of losses, the tide finally turns beginning in Russia with the epic battle for Stalingrad and the German retreat. Then, in Africa, the Allied armies defeat Rommel’s Afrika Korps. On mainland Europe, the Allies finally gain significant ground with the invasion of Italy and that county’s eventual surrender. Rare facsimile documents include General Montgomery’s orders for the Battle of El Alamein and Stalin’s notes for his speech following the Red Army’s victory at Stalingrad.
