An Artilleryman in Stalingrad

An Artilleryman in Stalingrad
This is the English edition of volumes 1 and 2 of Überleben? ...war für uns nicht vorgesehen!, art. no. and 335514 and 335515 on our webpage, but only covering the author's wartime battle of Stalingrad experience, with completely other images as seen in the German volumes and in the high quality known form the publisher.

In August 1942, Wigand Wüster was a veteran 22-year-old officer leading an artillery battery in Artillerie-Regiment 171 (71. Inf.-Div.) as it approached Stalingrad. The preceding months had been marked by heat, dust, endless marches, and brief skirmishes with the enemy - but mostly by an ongoing battle with his bullying battalion commander. In this brutally honest account, Wüster provides a glimpse of the war on the Eastern Front rarely seen before. With frankness, humour and perception, Wüster takes us from the heady days of the German 1942 summer offensive to the icy hell of Stalingrad's final hours, and finally into captivity.

Throughout illustrated with 160 contemporary images and some other illustrations.
