Refresh and try again. For my taste, this wasn’t a terribly enjoyable read because it was very much a detailed account of the battle strategies employed by both sides of the war. Ajin Sharma rated it it was ok Oct 06, The other, related choice is to radically decontextualize the battle of Stalingrad.
The battle lines were described but craaig a map it was difficult to see the pattern of the battle. The Wehrmacht and its soldiers were not innocent of the Nazis’ crimes. Elaine rated it it was ok Nov 13, I had to keep stopping to figure out what was going on.
Jacob Fox rated it it was ok Feb 21, Anyway, I know how it ends But I think my fundamental concern is a valid and important one. Thanks for telling us about the problem. Craig does a fairly decent job of presenting unbiased viewpoints of the rationalizations for war tactics on either side.

Lora Liao rated it it was ok Nov 22, Also, while Craig is quick and lavish in his description of the suffering of German and Axis POWs at the hands of the Russians, he absolutely and categorically ignores the systematic, programmatic starvation of Russian POWs by the Germans, and the equally systematic, programmatic, articulated as a matter of policy starvation of the civilian population in German-occupied Ukraine.

Craig does pepper in several narrative points throughout this book of the horrible sights, sounds, and experiences of the people involved, but it largely focuses on an objective strategic overview. Their sufferings were horrible and pointless, and I feel sympathy–sometimes unwillingly–for anyone who believed in Hitler willliam was betrayed which would be everyone who believed in Hitler.

In this book, Craig has made some choices with which I vehemently disagree. One is to tell the story of Stalingrad rather than the historywhich he does by largely turning the progress of the siege into a series of interlaced human interest stories.
Craig’s sentimentality and valorization of warfare are horribly misplaced in the story he’s telling even more horribly misplaced if he were actually writing historyand his belief that the battle of Stalingrad is a tragedy, the “gradual moral and physical disintegration of the German soldiers” xiiis predicated on the idea that the Germans weren’t morally bankrupt before they ever crossed the Don.
