The long awaited one-volume campaign history from the leading experts of the decisive clash of Nazi and Soviet forces at Stalingrad; an abridged edition of the five volume Stalingrad Trilogy

Praise for The Stalingrad Trilogy:

David Glantz has done something that very few historians achieve. He has redefined an entire major subject: The Russo-German War of 1941--1945. His exploration of newly available Russian archive records has made him an unrivaled master of Soviet sources. His command of German material is no less comprehensive. Add to this perceptive insight and balanced judgment, and the result is a series of seminal and massive volumes that come as close as possible to 'telling it like it was.&' Glantz has done some of his best work with Jonathan House. The Stalingrad Trilogy is the definitive account of World War II's turning point."*#8212;World War II

"Undoubtedly, the best researched narrative of Soviet-German battle during the period. . . . Thorough, informative, scrupulously accurate, and told with remarkable precision and reliability."--Journal of Military History

Glantz and House have produced seminal studies of major events on the Eastern Front. In terms of research, insight, and revision, this is their best yet reflecting] an unrivalled access to and mastery of written and human Russian sources on the Great Patriotic War."--Slavic Review

"No literature review of the Nazi-Soviet war could be complete without the outstanding work done by David Glantz and Jonathan House. What they have done is illustrate how much more there is to the Battle of Stalingrad and why their more comprehensive account changes our understanding of the campaign. The late John Erickson wrote that the research of Glantz and House reflected an 'encyclopedic knowledge' of the Nazi-Soviet war and constituted a benchmark for excellence in the field."--War in History

"Glantz and House have written] the definitive history of the Stalingrad campaign. Their trilogy, backed by meticulous scholarship and refreshingly fair-minded, significantly alters long-accepted views of several important aspects of the campaign. . . . A monumental work that is unlikely to be surpassed as an account of the most important single campaign of the Second World War."--Ewan Mawdlsey, author of Thunder in the East: the Nazi-Soviet War, 1941--1945
