    • QUOTES (3)

      • Peter Snow: The outcome of the entire war hung on what happened here in 1942 in the Battle of Stalingrad.

      • Dan Snow: For five months, German and Soviet troops fought each other street by street, building by building and room by room.

      • Peter Snow: Over 60 years ago, a battle was fought in this great Russian city that would be the turning point in the Second World War. It was one of the longest and hardest fought battles of all time.

    • NOTES (1)

      • Against the advice of his generals, Hitler continued to move many of his troops and supplies to the eastern Ukraine for a summer offensive code named "Case Blue". His generals warned him that these men and supplies should be focused on capturing the oil fields in the Russian steppes instead.
