Remembering Stalingrad 75 Years Later

Seventy-five years ago this month, the Soviet Red Army surrounded –and would soon destroy — a huge invading German army at Stalingrad on the Volga River. Nearly 300,000 of Germany’s best soldiers would never return home. The epic 1942-43 battle for the city saw the complete annihilation of the attacking German 6th Army. It marked the turning point of World War II.
