The Germans offensive in the east was grinding to a halt because the German army could not supply their tanks with the oil they needed. The Russian city of Stalingrad had the oil and resources in the cacauses. Instead of attacking the Russian capital of Moscow, Hitler decided that Stalingrad was a better prize. The Germans split there army into two divisons. One army would attack the city and the other army would attack the cacuases oil fields. Before they would attack, they bombed out the city and killed alot of the civilians. Most of the civilians in retailiation joined the army and strengthend the Russians. The Germans were able to push the Russians all the way back to the Volug river. With the German army in the heart of the city they thought they had won. But the Russians had dug in and fortified every house with machine guns and artillery. The big artillery guns were backed up against the river so they were protected. The Russians fought for every house and every street. The Russians were reinforced with T-34 tanks, ammo, and more importently winter close. The Germans were not equiped with warm gear so they lost a lot of men do to the cold. The Germans were getting slautered. Paulus had requested to retreat but Hitler had denied it and said fight to the very last man and round. The Russians surronded the Germans and with every day got closer to victory. Hitler had protected Paulus to field marshal because no German field officer had ever surrenderd. On Febuary 2, 1943 Paulus surrendered. The battle was finally over. The Importence of the battle is it was the turning point of the war. With the Germans loosing 90,000 men, 60,000 vehicles, and 6,000 artilery pieces. This giant loss meant that other countries realized that the Germans could be defeated. With German losses so high the German army could not mount another major affensive ever again. German Officials
