"A fantastic and sobering story...fully and authoritatively told."--The New York Times "Stalingrad's heart-piercing tragedy needed a chronicler with acute insight into human nature as well as the forces of history. Antony Beevor is that historian."--The Wall Street Journal "Easily the most complete and objective picture of the battle's scale and ferocity that American readers have ever read."--Dallas Morning News "Magnificent...Certainly the best narrative of the battle yet to appear and...not likely to be surpassed in our time."--John Keegan
