The 1993 German war drama film Stalingrad directed by Joseph Vilsmaier follows a platoon of World War II German Army soldiers transferred to Russia, where they ultimately find themselves plunged into the infamous Battle of Stalingrad.
In the spring of 1942, German troops advanced deep into the Soviet Union en route to Stalingrad. Hitler seriously misjudged the tenacity of the Red Army and was convinced that the city could be conquered before winter. Ordinary foot soldiers, inadequately clothed and without sufficient food, struggled just to stay alive. Abandoned by their leaders, Nazi troops froze and starved to death in a conflict that left over one million dead. Stalingrad graphically depicts this turning point in WWII in which the average German soldier was as much a victim of Nazi evil as the Soviet people.
One of the most respected movies ever produced about the Stalingrad battle, »
