Battle of Stalingrad By peyton renzi and Michael chichura

World War Two, along with every other major war, had many important battles. Fighting across the world, massive destruction and lives were lost as the Axis and Allies tested the knowledge and strategies they've practiced.

Battle of Stalingrad

From July 17, 1942 - February 2, 1943, the USSR stopped the Germans from entering the Soviet Union. Tilting the favor in the Allies' direction, this battle is known as the turning point in the war.

There were nearly 2 million casualties (military and civilians combined).

This is known as one of the bloodiest battles in history.

The Soviet Union knew that the Germans couldn't withstand the freezing temperatures. Marshal Georgii K. Zhukov (Soviet Union's greatest general) called this their counteroffensive.

On February 2, 1943, General Paulus of Germany surrendered with his 91,000 soldiers.
