Details

In the Battle of Stalingrad (August 1942-February 1943), German forces fought the Soviet Union for control of the city of Stalingrad in Southern Russia. Marked by fierce close-quarters combat and direct assaults on civilians in air raids, Stalingrad stands as one of the bloodiest battles in the history of warfare, with an estimated 2 million total casualties. After their defeat at Stalingrad, the German High Command had to withdraw considerable military forces from other theaters of war to replace their losses. This set contains a Russian 1 ruble (1938) and a German military 20 Reichsmark used in the war.
