English translation of the original image caption:

The Battle of Stalingrad

from 7 July 1942 through 2 Feb 1943

 

After the capitulation

of the fascist German troops

on 31 January and 2 February,

91,000 survivors became prisoners of war.

 

A younger soldier and fanatical Nazi,

who has not realized this end, yet.

 

Note: The original image caption

is communist propaganda, obviously.

 

In fact,

you see nothing but a wounded young POW,

guarded by a soviet soldier (in background).

On Feb. 2, 1943,

the remainder of Nazi forces

from the Battle of Stalingrad

surrendered, thereby ending

one of the fiercest

and bloodiest battles

in the history of war.

 

It was a pivotal victory

for the Soviets who,

after two years

of being pushed back

by Nazi forces,

turned the tide of the war

and began advancing

toward Germany

later in the year.

 

(...)

 

The war

between Nazi Germany

and the Soviet Union

had begun in June 1941,

when the Nazis disregarded

a non-aggression pact

and launched

a surprise invasion.

 

Nazi forces advanced

deep into Soviet territory,

but the harsh winter

prevented them

from reaching Moscow.

 

In June 1942,

Nazi leadership decided

to launch its second offensive

not toward Moscow, but toward

the industrial city of Stalingrad

and the oil-rich Caucasus region.

August 21, 1942 - February 2, 1943

 

Battle of Stalingrad

 

it is useful to remember

that the most terrible

battle of World War II

came not with

the D-Day landings

but with the savage

four-month German-Soviet

battle of Stalingrad.

 

Put it this way:

The Normandy landings

resulted in some

10,000 Allied battle deaths,

a terrible loss.

 

During the nightmarish months

of total war at Stalingrad,

the combined battle deaths

exceeded one million.

books/books-of-the-times-an-avalanche-of-death-that-redirected-a-war.html

 

 

 

The estimated loss of life

at Stalingrad varies,

but the Modern War Institute

puts the death toll

at approximately

1.2 million people.

 

An estimated 750,000 Soviets

died defending the city,

delivering an enormous blow

to the seemingly unstoppable

German war machine,

a psychological turning point

of World War II.
