Product description

2 fascinating DVDs based on the definitive book by Professor John Erickson.

The Road to Stalingrad was not only the psychological turning point of WWII, it also changed the face of modern warfare.

In August 1942, Hitler's huge Sixth Army reached the city that bore Stalin's name. In the five-month siege that followed, the Russians fought to hold Stalingrad at any cost, then, in an astonishing reversal, encircled and trapped their Nazi enemy.

This epic battle for the ruins of a city cost more than a million lives.

The Road to Berlin. The Germans had repulsed every Russian attempt to drive across the Oder River to Berlin. During early April, however, Stalin concentrated a tremendous force between Stettin and Breslau in preparation for a final blow against Germany. During the night of April 16/17, 1945, the Russians struck.

No one in Berlin had any hope of stopping the massive Russian offensive involving over 300 divisions. Left to defend the 321 square miles of the city were 60,000 untrained Home Guardsmen who ranged from 15-year old Hitler Youths to men in their seventies. In all, one-third of these men were unarmed.

Even though the Americans and British were advancing rapidly in the west, the terribly out numbered German forces along the River Oder fought desperately to stem the Russian advance.
