It seemed to take me almost as long to read this book as it took to fight the actual battle. It is never encouraged, and rarely possible, to forget that the Russians are the tools of Communism—which Craig, writing inclearly expects his readers to find abhorrent.
This book is not yet featured on Listopia. I am more interested in the human factor of the war, not the stratagems. Partly this is because I am irredeema. Maybe because it was the Christmas season, but I just couldn’t finish this one.
Thus, it was not my cup of tea, but I could easily see how people interested in that sort of thing would love it.

Do I think that the German soldiers and officers of the Sixth Army deserve sympathy? Linh Nguyen rated it it was ok May 20, He uses the word “holocaust” more than once, without any seeming awareness that it has particular connotations in any discussion of German participation in World War II, and late in the book, he says, “Paulus stopped trying to convince his superiors that further resistance was mass murder” –without any recognition that “mass murder” was actually happening elsewhere in German-occupied Europe, in Auschwitz, Sobibor, and the other death camps.

Bigdaddy Buchanan rated it it was ok Feb 05, One is to tell the story of Stalingrad rather than the historywhich he does by largely turning the progress of the siege into a series of interlaced human interest stories.
Want to Read saving…. Noor rated it it was ok Aug 21, The other, related choice is to radically decontextualize the battle of Stalingrad.
Conversations with official Russian sources on a not-for-attribution basis and it must be remembered that the Russians have never officially admitted their losses in World War II put the loss of Red Army soldiers at Stalingrad atkilled, wounded, or missing in action.
The other, related choice is to radically I found this book deeply problematic.
Probably my biggest take-away was an feeling of horror at the things that people did to each other and to the brutality bztalla the conditions a Russian winter under which they fought. I have my grandfather’s original copy batalpa this book, which was a huge motivator for me to read it. Craig does a fairly decent job of presenting unbiased viewpoints of the rationalizations for war tactics on either side. No trivia or quizzes yet.
Also, while Craig is quick and lavish in his description of the suffering of German and Axis POWs at the hands of the Russians, he absolutely and categorically ignores the systematic, programmatic starvation of Russian POWs by the Germans, and the equally systematic, programmatic, articulated as a matter of policy starvation of the civilian population in German-occupied Ukraine.
I found this book deeply problematic. I am more interested in the human factor of the war, not the stratagems.
