    The sign in the first photo reads something like "Entering Stalingrad connected/linked to mortal danger" just in case somebody wants to know.

    I've just started reading Antony Beevor's book 'Stalingrad'. These images accompany the read very well, but also give me the chills. It's very hard if not impossible to grasp the full scale and brutality of this battle, let alone understanding how hard the fighting must have been in the city, and how much the remaining civilians had have to suffer. How much I wish there never was a Stalingrad battle (WW II at all, i.e.)... thanks for the impressive pics, OP.

    First set, #9: Up until now I never realized there was StuG present in this pic (on the left picture margin), even though it has been printed so many times.
    First set, #18: This photograph pretty much looks like it was used as inspiration for the infamous "Gott mit uns" scene in the 1993 movie 'Stalingrad', doesn't it?

    In the same picture with the STuG there is also a Gewehr 41

    Amazing photos, thanks for sharing! The photo with the Stug and the photo ater that one were taken at the Stalingrad tractor factory where some of the fiercest and bloodiest battles took place, I've read in some books that they litterally fought hand to hand...
