A must read for fans of military history
David Glantz is rewriting the history of the German Russian conflict during WWII. In Armageddon in Stalingrad Glantz uses archival documents consisting of unit histories, after action reporting which includes daily casualty figures and the orders or reports from higher headquarters, to flesh out the ebb and flow of the battle for Stalingrad. In addition he uses the memoirs of the leaders who oversaw the action along with "I was there accounts" of the soldiers who fought and died in searing combat in the nightmarish rubble that Stalingrad was reduced to. This book is the second of the Stalingrad trilogy and picks up with the German arrival on the Volga. Book 1 of the trilogy covers the initial drive of the German army to reach Stalingrad during "Operation Blau" while the third book will cover the Russian offensive to pocket and destroy the German 6th Army in StalingradWas this review helpful?
