Stalingrad: City On Fire
by Alexey Isaev
- World War II
A new view of the epic battle
So much has been written about the Battle of Stalingrad—the Soviet victory that turned the tide of the Second World War—that we should know everything about it. But the history of the battle is evolving and Alexey Isaev’s engrossing account is a striking example of this fresh approach.
By bringing together previously unpublished Russian archive material—strategic directives, after-action reports, and official records of all kinds—with the vivid recollections of soldiers who were there, Stalingrad: City on Fire reconstructs what happened in extraordinary detail. It offers a revised view of events for readers who are already familiar with the story, and it is a fascinating introduction for those who are coming to it for the first time.
