Dead German soldiers in Stalingrad. Seems like a massacre. The Russians were ruthless.
Dead soldiers, destroyed tank
The dead at Stalingrad. Wonder how they dies. Aerial bombardment? Or Russians spraying bullets from heavy machine guns?
The vanquished: German POW. Sad state of an once proud and aggressive army.

It reproduces pictures such as a full color photo of a German soldier being comforted by his comrades after his arm was shot off, showing his arm laying on the ground next to him and showing the dazed expression on his face. If you are not too squeamish to look at that, then you may have the stomach for this book. Many pictures of Nazi atrocities are included as well as pictures of amputee refugee children. There are many other types of photos too, such as typical battle scene shots and pictures of the home front. However, for the most part, this book is unvarnished.
We have seen many war pictures showing battle scenes. We have also seen pictures of the wounded in a somewhat unrevealing manner.
This book does not hold back. If you want to see the horrors of war, buy this book but be prepared to be troubled after looking through it and if you have nightmares afterwards, don't say you were not forewarned.
