Battle of Stalingrad

One of the turning points of World War II, the Battle of Stalingrad was a catastrophic defeat for Nazi Germany. A large industrial city on the Volga River, Stalingrad was occupied by German troops in the late summer of 1942. The Germans never completely controlled the city, and a battle of attrition ensued. A Soviet counterattack in November surrounded the Germans in Stalingrad, and Hitler refused to allow the trapped Sixth Army, under Field Marshal Friedrich Paulus, to break out. Efforts to relieve the surrounded troops on the ground failed, as did an airborne resupply effort by the Luftwaffe. In February 1943, Paulus surrendered more than 250,000 German troops to the Red Army.
