Re: Rafachat - Vol. 80: It's comeback time baby!!! :rocker2:

Surrounded, battle-weary and exhausted, the Germans faced death or captivity. Captivity meant almost certain death. That is quite an elaborate way to say "You are fucked".

There is a trilogy on the Battle of Stalingrad by David Glantz:

To the Gates of Stalingrad: Soviet-German Combat Operations, April-August 1942

Armageddon in Stalingrad: September-November 1942 (The Stalingrad Trilogy, Volume 2)

AFTER STALINGRAD: The Red Army's Winter Offensive 1942-1943

I have not read any of it but saw an extensive interview of Glantz. I have read "When Titans clashed" about WW II on the Eastern Front.

Salvor Hardin: "Violence is the last refuge of the incompetent"

From Isaac Asimov's "Foundation".
