The hot snow

The war was in its second year. The fighting was drawing ever closer to the Volga river. In November 1942 Soviet troops went over to the offensive and closed a ring around Von Paulus’s group of German fascist armies totaling 330 thousand men who had been besieging Stalingrad for over 4 months. This was the beginning of the turning point of the war. Hitler's general staff was striving to regain the strategic initiative at any price, to come to the aid of their encircled troops, and to maintain its position near Stalingrad by all means. This is the story of just one engagement in the epic battle of Stalingrad.
