The once Stalingrad was on the Volga River.
The scene of the bloodiest battle of WW2.

The movie, "Enemy at the Gates" gives a blood curdling
screen play of this event.
Excellent movie with top stars...........no JOHN WAYNE
or any American actors thank God.

So much I haven't seen in the world! I'd like to catch the movie Colin mentioned.

You won't be disappointed.
It is historically correct.
Khrushchev is brilliantly portrayed and is he ever so brutal.
Sniper war at its best...........scary.
