    Default Photos after the Battle of Stalingrad

    Photos taken shortly after the battle of Stalingrad. If you click on the first picture on the upper right hand corner is a russian word that means next, so to scroll through them all just click on that word. There is some photos of death but very few and not very graphic. Very much worth viewing since the Battle of Stalingrad was major turning point in WW2.


    "In all, the battle resulted in an estimated total of 1.7 million to 2 million Axis and Soviet casualties (killed, disabled, captured)"
    "Of the 91,000 German POWs taken at Stalingrad, 27,000 died within weeks and only 5,000 returned to Germany in 1955."

    From Wikipedia
