ENDGAME IN STALINGRAD: November 1942 Vol. 3, Book 2
Book Two of the 3rd volume of Glantz' acclaimed Stalingrad Trilogy.
Glantz continues the Red Army's counteroffensive, Operation Uranus, and concludes his definitive history with an account of the final ten weeks of Germany's ill-fated Stalingrad campaign.
In short order, the Red Army parried and then defeated two German attempts to rescue the Sixth Army, crushed the Italian Eighth and Hungarian Second Armies, severely damaged the German Fourth Panzer and Second Armies, and finally destroyed the German Sixth Army in the ruins of Stalingrad. With well over half-a-million soldiers torn from its order of battle, Hitler's Axis could only watch in horror as its status abruptly changed from victor to vanquished.
This concluding chapter, relating events even more steeped in myth than those that came before, is especially bracing as it takes on controversial questions about why Operation Uranus succeeded and the German relief attempts failed, whether the Sixth Army could have escaped encirclement or been rescued, and who, finally was most responsible for its ultimate defeat. The answers Glantz provides, embedded in a fully-realized account of the endgame at Stalingrad, make this book the last word on one of history's epic clashes.
