Sacrifice on the Steppe
- The Italian Alpine Corps in the Stalingrad Campaign, 1942-1943
- By: Hope Hamilton
- Narrated by: James Langton
- Length: 12 hrs and 21 mins
When Germany’s Sixth Army advanced to Stalingrad in 1942, its long-extended flanks were mainly held by its allied armies - the Romanians, Hungarians, and Italians. But as history tells us, these flanks quickly caved in before the massive Soviet counter-offensive which commenced that November, dooming the Germans to their first catastrophe of the war. However, the historical record also makes clear that one allied unit held out to the very end, fighting to stem the tide - the Italian Alpine Corps.
Tens of thousands of my countrymen dead.
