Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

Hitler made two fundamental and crippling mistakes during the Second World War. The first was his whimsical belief that the United Kingdom would eventually become his ally, which delayed his decision to launch a major invasion of Britain, whose army was unprepared for the force of blitzkrieg warfare. The second was the ill-conceived Operation Barbarossa--an invasion of Russia that was supposed to take the German army to the gates of Moscow. Antony Beevor's thoughtfully researched compendium recalls this epic struggle for Stalingrad. No-one, least of all the Germans, could foretell the deep well of Soviet resolve that would become the foundation of the Red Army; Russia, the Germans believed, would fall as swiftly as France and Poland. The ill-prepared Nazi forces were trapped in a bloody war of attrition against the Russian behemoth, which held them in the pit of Stalingrad for nearly two years. Beevor points out that the Russians were by no means ready for the war either, making their stand even more remarkable; Soviet intelligence spent as much time spying on its own forces--in fear of desertion, treachery and incompetence--as they did on the Nazis. Due attention is also given to the points of view of the soldiers and generals of both forces, from the sickening battles to life in the gulags.

Many believe Stalingrad to be the turning point of the war. The Nazi war machine proved to be fallible as it spread itself too thin for a cause that was born more from arrogance than practicality. The Germans never recovered, and its weakened defences were no match for the Allied invasion of 1944. We know little of what took place in Stalingrad or its overall significance, leading Beevor to humbly admit that "[t]he Battle of Stalingrad remains such an ideologically charged and symbolically important subject that the last word will not be heard for many years". This is true. But this gripping account should become the standard work against which all others should measure themselves. --Jeremy Storey

4.0 von 5 Sternen No happy ending 28. Juni 2000
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This is an excellent account of the events leading up to the German army's biggest and most bitter defeat - the avoidable abandonment and slow death of an entire division at Stalingrad, a kind of Nazi Vietnam, although the well-chosen photographs could be of Kosovo, or any armoured conflict anywhere. Not so much an account of history as a vivid portrait of a nightmare hell, 'Stalingrad' conveys the madness of a campaign in which Russian deserters fought for the Germans, German deserters fought for the Russians - a campaign in which those fighting had the choice of dying by enemy fire, or by a bullet in the head from a morale officer - a campaign in which the German army repeatedly smashed the hopelessly-led Russian forces, and still lost. The sorry tale is run through with a horrible sense of inevitability - anybody with a little WW2 knowledge knows how it all turned out, and the way that the pieces fall into place make you want to warn the people involved, somehow. By the time the German army is surrounded in the broken ruins of a frozen city, with the nearest help being increasingly fought all the way back to Germany, and supplies running low, whilst at home Hitler orders them to stand, fight and die, you will have learned a lot about human nature.
The lengthy battle itself was brutal and drawn-out, and the aftermath was not at all pretty - captured German wounded were simply executed, with the remaining soldiers being marched to death. Those who survived often faced a future in a communist East Germany that didn't really want them, or imprisonment - the thought of the German officers languishing in prison until well into the era of rock-and-roll seems jarring and odd.
Also of note is a decent film on the subject, 'Stalingrad', produced by many of the same team responsible for 'Das Boot'.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Gripping, Well-Told Story 6. April 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
I've read several accounts of Stalingrad and for me this was the best. Beevor gives you the necessary strategic events and context, but his main purpose is to present the battle from the grunts' view and he succeeds marvelously. His description, for example, of the first encounter and conversations between Germans and Russians when the latter arrive ostensibly to seek the Sixth Army's surrender was memorable. I was also impressed with his research into the anti-Stalinst Russians who fought with the Germans (the "Hiwis"); this was the most extensive coverage I've seen of that issue. Finally, Beevor completes his work with a account of the sad fate of the German prisoners, most of whom succomb to disease and starvation, while their officers, given something akin to VIP treatment by the Soviets, bicker over trivialities like possession of eating utensils.
In short, I really enjoyed this book (if that's the right word for such a horrendous tragedy as Stalingrad) because of the authors' concentration on the fate of the individuals involved. You can get the strategic and military analysis elsewhere, but for a close look at what it all was like for the soldiers on the ground on each side, I highly recommend this book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A well-written account of this infamous battle. 15. Juni 2000
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
For history lovers everywhere, Stalingrad will not disappoint. I especially enjoyed the graphic details of the hardships of soldiers, both Germans and Russians, and marveled at the style in which Antony Beever was able to portray this information. Citing from genuine eye-witness accounts, confiscated letters and various historical documents, Beever is able to come up with a grinding tale of life during the siege of Stalingrad. Accurate insistence on detail completes a stunning portrait of this most horrific battle, and the page by page drama unfolds into an epic chronicle that could not be told in a better way. Stalingrad is easily depicted as the taproot of the turning point of World War II history. I highly recommend this novel.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Death in Der Kessel 9. Juni 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
As I read this book I kept wondering how it was possible that I had never heard of Mr. Beevor before, this is an outstanding piece of work. This book is a gritty no holds barred description of close quarters combat. A preliminary military sitrep of the eastern front is included but the strong suit of this book involves descriptions so vivid that you may find yourself scratching (I did) itches as you read about the lice and other vermin in the shattered city. Trained dogs carrying anti-tank charges, sniper battles, front line taunting, hunger, suicide, bravery, desertion (by both sides), punishment battalions re-supply attempts via the Luftwaffe are a sampling of topics covered. Mr. Beevors describes the strength and weakness of the weapons employed by both side, for example noting that the anti-tank cannon (PAK 37) used by the Wehrmacht and it's allies was so ineffective against the Soviet T-34 tank that it was refered to as the "door knocker". The Panzerwaffe firefights with Soviet women anti-aircraft gunners on the outskirts of Stalingrad in the fall of 1942 shocked the Germans as to the degree of fanatic defensive efforts the Soviets were going to employ in this battle. The city became symbolic in the battle of wills between Hitler and Stalin, each drew a line in the sand at this place, unfortunately for the 6th Army, Stalingrad became their burial ground. This book contains easy to understand maps and (paperback version) two sections of photos. The book offers a very close look Field Marshal Friedrich Paulus' dilemma between obeying orders and looking out for the well-being of the 6th Army. Lesen Sie weiter... ›
