Riassunto: Describes the events surrounding the crucial World War II battle in which Stalin's troops repulsed the Nazi invaders of the Soviet Union.
From School Library Journal:
Grade 6 Up. From the end of August 1942, to the end of January 1943, the world looked on from a distance at one of the longer sieges of a city in modern warfare. It was the struggle of the German Wehrmacht's Sixth Army against the Soviet Army's defenders of Stalingrad. The narrative relates in interest-holding, economical prose the story of the "tremendous, last-ditch battle that was the single greatest turning point of World War II." Carroll makes clear through supporting detail that his thesis is valid and that, "Stalingrad became a test of wills between the two dictators." The author apparently has drawn heavily upon secondary sources, but this in no way detracts from the overall high quality of his very readable history. Sufficient background information is provided for readers with little or no prior knowledge of the events, and Carroll supplements the main text with informative, boxed sidebars that discuss the differences between Communists and Nazis, compare Hitler and Napoleon, etc. Archival black-and-white photos with succinct captions, as well as instructive maps, contribute further to the volume's attractiveness and resource value. The suggestions for further reading promote excellent books that many young adults may be motivated to seek out. This title will complement well the "Cities at War." series (New Discovery Bks.).?David A. Lindsey, Lakewood High and Middle School Libraries, WA
