Antony Beevor - Stalingrad

The best book I have ever read about the battle of Stalingrad is that by Antony Beevor. While reading the books five hundred and twelve pages I was gripped and did not want to put the book down.

Every page in this book tells a story, with so much detail included in this book you feel like a Stalingrad historian by the time you have read it. The difference between Stalingrad by Antony Beevor and other Stalingrad books is that it holds much more information while still feeling like light and enjoyable reading.

Antony Beevors book Stalingrad is the international No 1 bestseller for history books on the Stalingrad battle. The book is also the winner of the Samuel Johnson Prize, Wolfson Price and Hawthornden Prize.

If your interested in the battle of the Eastern front during World War 2 and especially the battle at Stalingrad then this is certainly the book you need to read on the subject.

  1. You´re right, that is THE best book about Stalingrad battle. I have it and have read it at least three times.
    Another good one from Beevor is his book "(The Fall of/The Downfall) Berlin 1945".
