Street Fighting in Stalingrad - Oct 1942

World War Two combat footage from Stalingrad in southwestern Russia from a German wartime newsreel (Die Deutsche Wochenschau Nr.633, 21-Oct-1942). The Battle of Stalingrad was a major battle of World War II in which Nazi Germany and its allies fought the Soviet Union for control of the city of Stalingrad (now Volgograd) in southwestern Russia. The battle took place between 23 August 1942 and 2 February 1943. It is the largest battle on the Eastern Front and was marked by its brutality and disregard for military and civilian casualties. It is among the bloodiest battles in the history of warfare, with the higher estimates of combined casualties amounting to nearly two million. In its defeat, the crippling losses suffered by Germany's military proved to be insurmountable for the war. The battle was a turning point in the war, after which the German forces attained no further strategic victories in the East. Read more at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Stalingrad
