5.0 out of 5 starsGreat introduction for people new to the subject
Reviewed in the United States on August 19, 2020
This series doesn't pretend to be anything but an introductory overview to it's topics. Readers are expected to no relatively nothing about the subject, and therefore the background information is quite welcome. Just reading about an event in a vacuum doesn't really provide knowledge as to why something happened, just that it did. This is a great book for home school high schoolers or people who are looking to learn about WW2 as beginners.

I love that these histories are so interesting and give a great couple of hours read of the topics. Have read several of this series a couple of times. This v is my first read of Stalingrad. Very GOOD.
I have written a few comments about this author’s books. Again I’m of the opinion that this book stand at the top. Well written and researched. This short read gives you so much. A must read for lovers of history.
A look at the unbelievable suffering the people of Stalingrad went thru and the huge death toll, another good book is Leningrad which also is a good example of the horrors of war and the suffering of the people.
