On the last day of January, 1943, the German Sixth Army surrendered to the Russions at Stalingrad. After a winter campaign of unparalleled horror and hardship, the Wehrmacht was beaten. "The Road to Stalingrad" is a shattering eyewitness account of that lost battle -- written by a survivor. Benno Zieser was drafted at the age on nineteen and fought in the infantry at Stalingrad. In this book he tells of his first naive enthusiasm -- then the shocking realities: The frozen wastes of an unconquerable continent . . . Gutted roads strewn with abandoned equipment . . . The anonymous graves by the wayside . . . The colossal fraud behind Hitler's promise of victory.
Not since 'All Quiet on the Western Front' has a German author written such a powerful indictment of war -- but Benno Aieser's book is fact, not fiction. ; 4" x 7"; 152 pages
