Stalingrad

On August 23rd 1942, 330,000 men of the German 6th Army smashed through Soviet defences outside the city of Stalingrad. It seemed nothing could stop the city falling in just a few days. But two months later the Germans were still locked in a deadly battle of attrition in a wasteland of pulverised rubble. Their offensive had become a murderous one-on-one fight they call ‘Rat War’.

Alamein

On October 23rd 1942, two Armies face off across a forty-mile strip of one of the harshest terrains in the world, the remote North African desert. On one side are 200,000 British and Allied troops with over 1000 tanks. On the other, the feared German Afrika Korps and their Italian Allies, with 100,000 troops and 500 tanks. The battle is a last ditch stand for the British, who have been pushed back nearly 1000 miles from Libya, to a little known Egyptian railway stop called El Alamein.
