    Default Stanlingrad medal?

    I was watching a ww2 documenty last night, Apocalypse of ww2 (part 4) And they said that after the germans capture (most) of stalingrad. Hitler order to make a medal for this.. They show it for a brief moment, so i took a printscreen. I have never heard about a stalingrad medal from the german side. Was it never issued? or have i missed it?

    The germans had for special and big combats memory shields like the Krimschild or the Narvikschild, but never any medals or orders. So I am sure that the shown Stalingrad medal wasn't an official medal for Stalingrad fighters of the WH.

    talked to a guy at an arms fair a while back who was real pleased at his 'stalingrad shield ' he had brought a while back .. 50 he paid... when i explained to him that it never existed he said " they sell replicas on the 'soldier of fortune' website.. and its true..they do at a mere 14.99.... if someone sells a replica of an award that never existed does that make it origional lol

    Stalingrad shields or medals were never official awards. Basically anything is fake. Lappland shields were made by POW's & essentially unissued, although L/Land shield docs were. Stay away from any award that's marked Stalingrad. Stewy

    Pure and total 4th Reich fantasy item. There would be no reason to ever manufacture an item commemorating a crushing defeat. Who would it go to? When the Luftwaffe could only supply about 8% of the supplies needed for survival, I doubt that a supply plane would be filled with crates of this bad joke.
