Dave Fitzwilliam – Why was the Battle of Stalingrad so Deadly?


Posted on July 15th

The Battle of Stalingrad. Inarguably one of the most merciless and destructive battles throughout history. Resulting in nearly two million total casualties between August 23, 1942, through February 2, 1943, the German siege resulted in a decisive victory for the Soviets… although at the cost of over a million Russian casualties. The numbers of the Battle of Stalingrad seem ridiculously high, on both sides. So, why was the Battle of Stalingrad so deadly?  This video will answer the question.

As the oldest and one of the longest-serving members of our Rotary Club, Dave Fitzwilliam needs no introduction.
