The End at Stalingrad: 20th January – 2nd February 1943

By Jonathan McNeice

Later that day a Luftwaffe reconnaissance plane flew over the city and radioed back the following message, "no more sign of fighting in Stalingrad."  The 6th army was no more. They had been surrounded since November and had fought on despite facing superior odds and watching as their strength and health frittered away. The promised relief never came, and of the 250,000 men encircled in November only about 6,000 ever returned home. It was a staggering defeat for the Whermacht and many historians argue that the battle was the decisive turning point in the East. A campaign that had started with a dashing drive across the steppes in the summer ended in the dark, damp, ruined basements of Stalingrad, and set the Third Reich on the road to ultimate defeat.
