The City Fight Begins! BATTLESTORM STALINGRAD E19


840



After starting their attack on the 13th, German troops entered the city of Stalingrad on the 14th of September 1942. In this history documentary, we’ll see how close Paulus’ infantry and StuGs came to Chuikov’s headquarters, with the commander of the 62nd Army having to throw in NKVD police, militia units and dogs to try and stem the tide!

Probable error: I’m not convinced I got the front lines correct when referring to the fighting around the Central Railway Station from around 35:18 in the video onwards. Thinking about it, I now suspect that the lines should have stopped after the Germans took the station, allowing the Soviets to retake it a couple of times at that point, before the lines moved on towards the Volga and the Fallen Fighters Square. Thus, when the 10th NKVD Division (and the dogs) retake the station in the video (e.g. at 42:30 ), the Germans probably weren’t in the buildings on their right flank. I mean, it could have happened this way, but it seems unlikely. I only realized this issue yesterday (the day before publishing), which was too late to change everything around… which is why I probably need more time to edit these videos than I do… I’ll talk about this in a future addendum video.

ABOUT TIK 📝

History isn’t as boring as some people think, and my goal is to get people talking about it. I also want to dispel the myths and distortions that ruin our perception of the past by asking a simple question – “But is this really the case?”. I have a 2:1 Degree in History and a passion for early 20th Century conflicts (mainly WW2). I’m therefore approaching this like I would an academic essay. Lots of sources, quotes, references and so on. Only the truth will do.

This video is discussing events or concepts that are academic, educational and historical in nature. This video is for informational purposes and was created so we may better understand the past and learn from the mistakes others have made.
