A New York Times bestseller that brings to life one of the bloodiest battles of World War II--and the beginning of the end of the Third Reich. On August 5, 1942, giant pillars of dust rose over the Russian steppe, marking the advance of the 6th Army, an elite German combat unit dispatched by Hitler to capture the industrial city of Stalingrad and press on to the oil fields of Azerbaijan. The Germans were supremely confident; in three years, they had not suffered a single defeat.The Luftwaffe had already bombed the city into ruins. German soldiers hoped to complete their mission and be home in time for Christmas.   The siege of Stalingrad lasted five months, one week, and three days. Nearly two million men and women died, and the 6th Army was completely destroyed. Considered by many historians to be the turning point of World War II in Europe, the Soviet Army's victory foreshadowed Hitler's downfall and the rise of a communist superpower. Bestselling author William Craig spent five years researching this epic clash of military titans, traveling to three continents in order to review documents and interview hundreds of survivors. Enemy at the Gates is the enthralling result: the definitive account of one of the most important battles in world history. It became a New York Times bestseller and was also the inspiration for the 2001 film of the same name, starring Joseph Fiennes and Jude Law.… (mer)

I don't think I ever read a history book with so much energy. You will also need to read the wikipedia article to get the dry facts - this, while not missing on the tactical details altogether, is concentrating on the many personal stories and hundreds of small vignettes. I can't even find a book to compare it with and I read a reasonable amount of non-fiction. Initially I was disappointed as I favour more straightforward "field-report" style books but this technique proved amazing in this case, painting a graphic and powerful picture. ( )

This was engagingly written. ( )

Another samizdat text. I read this in a hurry, if not a huff. Revealing and self-aware it paused well short of the sentimental and was tactful and illuminating. ( )

La historia de quizás la mayor batalla de la historia. Craig relata con pasión y detalles toda la atrocidad de esta batalla. Desde la confiada llegada de los alemanes, la desesperada defensa de los soviéticos hasta la muerte del VI ejército. Entre la de Beevor y la de Craig, me quedo con la de Craig. ( )

Two madmen are engaged in a battle that will cost untold number of lives. The result of this struggle, helped to bring about the downfall of NAZI Germany. (The movie by the same name was a paragraph taken from the book!). ( )
