You know, the Red Army shot 16,000 of their own men at Stalingrad. And of course, the majority of the Wehrmacht had no winter clothing. See, by the winter of '42, the whole city was surrounded by the massed 6th army. It was pressing, and pressing; the Russians couldn't hold on much longer. Many wanted to submit.

The German supply lines were stretched. Zhukov countered... and the siege was broken. And that's all the story of Stalingrad.

By far this was the battle were most people died.

Every one of those people have an history.

I understand your try of a summary, but this battle have so much argument that a summary will always fail.

Just stay mute, /u/combocore. You’re a social freak. Remain in your compound.

I didn’t say that at all.

But when you say “that’s all the story of Stalingrad” it looks like it was a common tedious battle.

And I’m sure that’s not what you think and not what’s the battle was.
