Stalingrad: The Fateful Siege, 1942–1943 by Antony BeevorThe Battle of Stalingrad was not only the psychological turning point of World War II: it also changed the face of modern warfare. Historians and reviewers worldwide have hailed Antony Beevors magisterial Stalingrad as the definitive account of World War IIs most harrowing battle.
In August 1942, Hitlers huge Sixth Army reached the city that bore Stalins name. In the five-month siege that followed, the Russians fought to hold Stalingrad at any cost; then, in an astonishing reversal, encircled and trapped their Nazi enemy. This battle for the ruins of a city cost more than a million lives. Stalingrad conveys the experience of soldiers on both sides, fighting in inhuman conditions, and of civilians trapped on an urban battlefield. Antony Beevor has interviewed survivors and discovered completely new material in a wide range of German and Soviet archives, including prisoner interrogations and reports of desertions and executions. As a story of cruelty, courage, and human suffering, Stalingrad is unprecedented and unforgettable.

Just a few hours ago, the Streets of Stalingrad 4th edition Kickstarter for the new play-test kit was canceled! The company has cited creative differences between the two IP owners, Parham and Lombardy. It seems very oddly timed in the last few days of the campaign. The following is taken directly from the Kickstarter :. It is with deep regret that David Parham and I—the original creators of Streets of Stalingradtm—have canceled the 4th edition project. Out of legal considerations, we prefer to express our concerns in the following press release. We feel that irreconcilable creative differences have gotten in the way of producing the project we were so excited to bring to the gaming world.
