Battle of Stalingrad Timeline
Transcript of Battle of Stalingrad Timeline
November 23rd, 1942 Operation Uranus is a complete success, trapping and killing over 500,000 German soldiers. After pure fighting had failed the Russians, a smart, organized plan was what the Russians needed to trap the German Army. The Russian soldiers surrounded the Germans and cut off all of their attempts at resupplying supplies or calling for backup, or allies.
December 12th, 1942 Russian Field Marshal Georgy Zhukov launches an attack on the German forces to help the previous forces. Germans weren’t ready at all for this attack. The Germans had no idea what to do and were forced to retreat. Zhukov became the Russian Minister of Defense in 1955.
February 2nd, 1943 The beginning of the end finally came for the trapped German troops. The German army starved and fought weakly for another 3 weeks before surrendering on February 2nd. This battle was extremely important in the ending of WWII as well as new German government, and the end of the Holocaust. It marked the end of Germany's campaign on Russia. Following the Russian victory, the Germans were soon forced out of Russia. November 19th, 1942 German advances are stopped and the Russians regrouped and set up a plan - Operation Uranus - to encircle the Germans inside of Stalingrad and attack them from the outside in and force them to surrender once the Germans were surrounded from all sides.
