Somehow, it resembles more with the book War of the Rats by David L. Robbins , which is a fictionalized account of the duel between two sharpshooters in the warzone of Stalingrad. In my opinion, Stalingrad is a way better movie than the Hollywood one. This book in fact covers the whole battle of Stalingrad from the German perspective. One would not be entirely correct if one thinks that the movie Enemy At The Gates was based on this book, even though the movie posters claims it to be so.

Return to Book Page.

One is to tell the story of Stalingrad rather than the historywhich he does by largely turning the progress of the siege into a series of interlaced human interest stories.
