The Battle of Stalingrad
The last German units laid down arms near Stalingrad on February 2, 1943.
In terms of its duration, the ferocity of the fighting and the amount of troops and military hardware involved, the Battle of Stalingrad was unprecedented.
The Soviet troops defeated five armies in the Stalingrad Battle: two German, two Romanian and one Italian.
During the battle, which lasted for six and a half months, the fascist bloc armies lost more than a quarter of the troops engaged on the Soviet-German frontline at the time.
The enemy lost more than 800,000 soldiers and officers, who were killed, wounded or taken prisoner, as well as huge amounts of military hardware, weaponry and equipment.
Near Stalingrad the Red Army stopped the triumphant advance of the Nazi invaders, who tried to reach the oil-rich parts of the Caucasus and the fertile lands of Kuban.
The outcome of the Battle of Stalingrad had an immense impact on the international liberation struggle. Stalingrad and its defenders came to symbolize courage, heroism and victory.
