The Battle of Stalingrad was the most famous battle in history. It went on from 1942-1943. This battle was the Soviet defense of the city Stalingrad in the USSR during World War II. It halted the German advance into the Soviet Union, and it signified the turning of the current of war in favor of the allies.
It was one of the bloodiest battles in history, with combined military and civilian casualties of nearly two million people. In this battle, Soviet forces surrounded and crushed an entire German army contingent. This battle was justly considered a turning point in the war. It was also a great humiliation to Hitler.
