"Peter Antill's Stalingrad 1942 discusses one of the key battles of World War II and is a top pick for any in-depth military library seeking more detailed analysis of strategies and approaches to battle. Peter Antill questions why the Germans allowed themselves to be diverted from their main objective and defeated in the Eastern Front: maps and analysis provide keys to understanding." --California Bookwatch (August 2007)
