In August 1942, an overconfident Adolf Hitler would attempt to invade Stalin's namesake city on the Volga. The battle of Stalingrad is extraordinary in every way: the triumphant invader fought to a standstill; then the Soviet trap sprung, surrounding their attackers; and the terrible siege, with Germans starving and freezing, forced to fight on by a disbelieving Hitler. Now Antony Beevor tells the story as it has never been told before, recounting the strategic brilliance and fatal flaws of the notorious generals, while telling the incredible tale from a soldier's-eye view. The author incorporates Russian reports on desertions and executions that have never been seen by Western scholars, German transcripts of prisoner interrogations, and private letters and diaries to re-create the human drama of the most terrible battle in modern warfare.

    " The books by Mr. Beevor are exceptional and quite accurate. I sometimes feel exhausted just getting to the dramatic end. The audiobook, "Stalingrad" is abridged. In this case a very written and insightful book into the conditions leading to this epic battle. I do not like this story being abridged, especially in the skillful reading hands of George Guidall. This is a book for posterity and it is great story for now. What idiot made this decision to abridge one of the most instructive battles of World War II. I understand far better why and how this battle was fought and at the immense costs to both the Russians and Germans. It is wrong to abridge such a great book. "

    " Antony Beevor writes history like a thriller. The best book I've ever read about Stalingrad. "

    " The most harrowing book I've read about mankind's strangest endeavor. Beevor cleverly combines the strategy and scale of the battle with the personal. One wonders how it is possible for us to manoever ourselves in such a position that we would commit such atrocities on each other. "

    " An entertaining book, good for those who want to study about one of the best known battles of World War II. It is not an easy to read book, the author loses himself in details. He presents with the accuracy of the historian both parts, the German Army and the Red Army, using an objective eye. Recommend it for those really interested in history. "
