    The best help for me this maps from battle of Stalingrad, aerial photos of the Luftwaffe, documents and schemas...

    Here for example: not advertising map of Stalingrad

    I have no money for this map, but now I have photos this rare map.

    I have already said that we can do this thread together...

    I have the opportunity to dig here in Stalingrad, may be you have the opportunity to find archives and tell me interesting places ...

    With each passing day it is very difficult to find cool places where I can dig ...

    the 2nd February was a landmark day...

    71 years ago the 6th Army of Wehrmacht was destroyed by the Red Army in Stalingrad...

    I've long wanted to publish a story about Mamaev Kurgan (hill)...

    on the Internet I found many interesting maps and aerial photographs of the Luftwaffe. And now you can better understand the situation with my walks last summer...

    Mamaev Kurgan
    For sure the name of the city and 'Mamaev Kurgan' will echo through time.

    I look forward to you publishing the story.

    This aerial photography and here you can see the marks that I made.

    You can see that the German machine gunner was next to the railway bridge (railway Stalingrad-Moscow).

    This positions the 516 Infantry Regiment (295 Infantry Division General Korfes).

    left Metiz Factory there fought Vassili Zaitsev (284 Rifle Division, Colonel Batiuk).

    This is a photo I'm standing near the MG position. You can see the hole and fresh soil.
    In this photo you can see arc of fire for the German machine gunner. As you can see it was the most important railway bridge.

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader
