Stalingrad

Title: Stalingrad by Antony Beevor

Category: Nonfiction, History, War World II

Review: This book was a pretty good read. It wasn’t just a view from one side. The author took it from both the Russian and German sides. There are 25 chapters and there are over 400 pages of this book. I enjoyed reading it because it takes you from the beginning of the siege of Stalingrad to the end where the Germans surrendered and what happened to the German POWs (aka Prisoners of War). I found myself laughing at some things, but mostly it was a review of a sad event on both sides. Neither sides deserved to have the amount of men that died to die. I do hope that you read this book. It is a look at the realities of a battle that should have never been.
