The Battle of Stalingrad refers to the fighting that occurred between 17 July 1942 and 2 February 1943 for control of the eponymous city, which has been our sister city since 1959. The USSR forces fought those of the Third Reich. The fighting, which lasted six months, claimed the lives of about 750,000 soldiers and 250,000 civilians, making the Battle of Stalingrad one of the deadliest in history.
It was one of the great defeats of the German army and was definitely a major strategic turning point in World War II.
