Description

Penguin presents the unabridged downloadable audiobook edition of Stalingrad by Antony Beevor, read by Peter Nobel.

Antony Beevor's Stalingrad is a harrowing look at one of history's darkest moments.

In October 1942, a panzer officer wrote, 'Stalingrad is no longer a town.... Animals flee this hell; the hardest stones cannot bear it for long; only men endure.'

The battle for Stalingrad became the focus of Hitler and Stalin's determination to win the gruesome, vicious war on the eastern front. The citizens of Stalingrad endured unimaginable hardship; the battle, with fierce hand-to-hand fighting in each room of each building, was brutally destructive to both armies. But the eventual victory of the Red Army, and the failure of Hitler's Operation Barbarossa, was the first defeat of Hitler's territorial ambitions in Europe and the start of his decline.

Antony Beevor is the renowned author of Stalingrad, which won the Samuel Johnson Prize, the Wolfson Prize for History and the Hawthornden Prize for Literature, and Berlin, which received the first Longman-History Today Trustees Award. His books have sold nearly four million copies.

Critiques

"A brilliantly researched tour de force of military history." (Sarah Bradford, The Times)
"An extraordinary story of tactical genius, civilian bravery, obsession, carnage and the nature of war itself, Stalingrad will act as a testament to the vital role of the soviet war effort. A superb re-telling. Beevor combines a soldier's understanding of war's realities with the narrative techniques of a novelist.... This is a book that lets the reader look into the face of battle." (Orlando Figes, Sunday Telegraph)

A blow by blow account

I doubt that anyone could “enjoy” this book. There is so much misery in every line that gloom takes over very soon. But after a while one becomes numb to so much violence very much like Michael Bay’s movies.

I often zoned out while listening to it and missed a lot of things being said. However often I found myself brooding over the fate and demise of these strangers who died decades ago in lands that I have never seen.

I was eagerly awaiting the end of the book. I don’t know whether it is the prowess of the author that, just like the soldiers of that unfortunate battle waited for the end, made me impatient to hear the end of this misery or I got simply got lost in the names, ranks, regiments and dates.

The narrator is very good and he did justice to the book.

This book will make you terribly sad.
