Secrets of Stalingrad

Image 1 / 7

Gripping historic documentary ‘Secrets of Stalingrad' reveals how the Battle of Stalingrad dramatically changed the course of World War II and history as we know it. With more than one million lives lost in just seven months, Stalingrad became one of the deadliest battles ever fought in the history of warfare. Despite Germany's invasion of the Soviet Union in 1941 being documented as the largest troop offensive in military history. Many experts now believe it was the battle of Stalingrad - not Normandy - that decided the whole war. Until now, our understanding of this crucial battle has been based on German materials and on Stalin's own censored version of the battle. It is only since the collapse of the Soviet Union that it has been possible to dig into Russian archives and uncover the truth, which has been shrouded in mystery for decades.
