  • The author forgot to mention that at the beginning of the Stalingrad battle, the German 6th army had 250 thousand people. And in two Soviet armies in the city - 50 thousand each. The Russian army were much smaller in number than the German one, as is the division. The battle of Stalingrad is called the confrontation of the fronts 500km long near Stalingrad, and the number of people in these fronts is called. But there were much fewer people in the city itself. There weren't millions. This is a small city, it is impossible to accommodate so many people there. The Russians held the city in a minority. And they managed to realize the numerical advantage to encircle the enemy at the second stage. Pure strategic victory. Although if listen to the Germans - they killed more Russians than there were. And definitely won. Well almost. As for the dead prisoners, this is a tragedy. Nobody wanted that. The fighting destroyed all roads in the vicinity, and supplies were destroyed. There was no transport to send 100 thousand people at once to the rear. The condition of the prisoners was catastrophic. I will not describe this shame here, read memoirs, to which the vaunted German discipline and order descended.

  • Excellent presentation of history, facts, BUT -- you've really must bring in consultants to review your pronunciation of German and Russian names and words. Your mangling of German and Russian is difficult to bear, and detracts from the authenticity/accuracy of your history. Wouldn't hurt to have an English language editor review your regular script copy as well. Although I must admit, you got SIGH-KNOW Japanese War right. But please fix this in future videos

  • It's funny when they talk about harsh Russian winters when, in fact, areas around Moscow\Stalingrad aren't known here in Russia for being harsh at all. Relatively mild winters tbh. Quite far away from Siberia. Napoleon bitched about losing due to harsh Russian winter, but it was actually just -12C in that month. Compare to Siberia's -40C/-50C being the norm.

  • Mate, thanks for the video, and I am glad to see that TIK's videos for research purposes, which leads me to my next point/question, how the heck did you figure out that Germans "were halted near Moscow due to extreme weather conditions"? So, let me get this straight, the "extreme weather conditions" was the only/the most important factor that lead to German defeat at Moscow in 1941? Oh and btw, the Stalingrad battle started mid July, not late August, as you are suggesting. I believe TIK also mentions that in his videos as well, apart from the "winter argument"
