Angriff The German Attack on Stalingrad In Photos [Hardcover]

Angriff The German Attack on Stalingrad In Photos [Hardcover]
This volume reads just like a history due to the extensive captions that were researched extensively.

We have been accused.....

Pro-Nazi? Partial to fascism? Sympathetic to Nazism. These are some of the comments that come up. The truth is far from that. This impression was perhaps created because we carry more pictures from German sources. There is a reason for that. The victors (Russia, America, Britain...) tend to give out only those images that show them in good light. And they are dull! Who said propaganda is entertaining? The pictures taken by Germans are very interesting because the source; Nazi Germany itself disappeared. There was no one to control which images were to be released. And they are fascinating. They show war as it was. Not the way someone wanted us to see it.

Also, images of the Wehrmacht are fascinating for the simple reason ( besides, of course, that it was a very formidable fighting force) that the German army was defeated , dismembered, and most of the best soldiers died before WW2 ended.

A City Of Doom: Berlin May 1945 In Pictures

Berlin. May 1945. A city doomed. Paying for the madness of Germany's leaders. If there ever was hell on earth it was Berlin in May 1945.....

How the mighty fell. A forlorn Brandenburg Gate stands witness to how low the German people had fallen. Soviet soldiers walk around a destroyed German Panther tank in the foreground.

Old women and children suffered for no fault of theirs. Here helpless German women in a suburb of Berlin are fleeing from he east and trying to cross the River Elbe to the relative safety of American occupied Germany. The Red Army soldiers were raping women from 8 to 80 years old. Even the poor girl in the image must have been raped. What justice? Is man really civilised? One wonders at times like these.

A devastated Berlin in May 1945. It had  been half blown to bits by British and American bombers even before the Russians entered. The Red Army came and completed the job.

The most humiliated of Germans. Surrendered German soldiers being sent to camps by the Russians. These once proud men of the Wehrmacht not only faced defeat  but also the additional ignominy of seeing German women raped by Russians in front of them.

German women on a Berlin street in end of May 1945. By then the mass rape was beginning to abate somewhat.

Apocalypse now. A city totally destroyed . It is a wonder how so many of its inhabitants managed to survive the savage fighting.

To survive is to be practical. Berlin women thought it best to socialise with the                                                                          enemy. Here German women chat with Red Army soldiers.

What happened to Hitler's "Survival of the fittest?". This old gentleman must have seen a lot of things he wished he had not. 

The man of the moment. Marshal Zhukov emerges  from the ruins of the Reichstag.

A blinded Russian soldier walks with the support of his comrade. He could well be Germany.

Von Stauffenberg: The Man Who Almost Killed HITLER
After several unsuccessful tries by Stauffenberg to meet Hitler, G├Âring and Himmler when they were together, he went ahead with the attempt at Wolfsschanze on 20 July, 1944. Stauffenberg entered the briefing room carrying a briefcase containing two small bombs. The location had unexpectedly been changed from the subterranean F├╝hrerbunker to Speer's wooden barrack/hut. He left the room to arm the first bomb with specially-adapted pliers, a task made difficult because he had lost his right hand and had only three fingers on his left. A guard knocked and opened the door, urging him to hurry as the meeting was about to begin. As a result, Stauffenberg was able to arm only one of the bombs. He left the second bomb with his aide-de-camp, Werner von Haeften, and returned to the briefing room, where he placed the briefcase under the conference table, as close as he could to Hitler. Some minutes later, he excused himself and left the room.

Please note...

In articles related to the Eastern Front of WW2, the Soviet Union has been commonly referred to as Russia. This is because the Soviet Union was mainly Russia. Other states like Ukraine, Georgia, Byelorussia were in comparision very small.
