    Looking forward to this one.Been a while since I saw a WW2 film that knocked my socks off. Last war film I saw that did it for me was 'The Black Book'. Its a dutch movie, a little contrived in places but a great film in my opinion. I hope this new Stalingrad is as good as I hope it is....haha

    If they make an effort with Russian & German accents than that would be a good start!

    I was impressed with the last Russian war film that I saw - Fortress Of War, which is about the fighting for the Brest-Litovsk citadel in June 1941 - so maybe there is a new wave of good war films coming out of Russia.

    Interesting. Look forward to the new movie (but then I looked forward to Iron Sky too and that stank to high heaven. What a POS!)

    I guess I'm in the minority here. I always liked the poor 1993 Stalingrad film.

    I quite liked the 'original' too.
    Surprised so many here dont.
    Horses for courses and all that.

    This is a good easy reference book on Stalingrad. I refer to it alot

    This is a chronological account of the battle that inflicted a heavy defeat on the German Wehrmacht. With the aid of full color maps and first hand accounts, the book explains how the Germans initially made vast territorial conquests during the opening phases of Operation Blue, their 1942 offensive in southern Russia. But then the Sixth Army was drawn into a war of attrition in the rubble of Stalingrad, where the mobility and firepower of the panzers counted for nothing.

    New examinations of this perennially interesting battle
    Includes newly-discovered photographs and information from Soviet archives
    First-hand accounts feature heavily, bringing home the grim reality of urban fighting
    Strategic overview of Operation Blue, the codename of the 1942 German offensive in Russia
    Detailed timeline chapters allow the reader to put the Stalingrad battle in a strategic context
    Comparison of the fighting techniques and weapons employed by the Germans and Soviets in 1942

    Looks like an excellent book. Might be worth looking into.

    I'm always a little dubious of books with less than 200 pages as to how in-depth can they really be when you take into account that it will also have pages on the background to the events and the after effects etc?
    An extremely good book is Michael K Jones 'Stalingrad: How The Red Army Triumphed' - although it concentrates on the Russian angle it does have plenty of eye witness accounts and breaks down the long held myths of various parts of the battle.
