A New York Times bestseller that brings to life one of the bloodiest battles of World War II—and the beginning of the end of the Third Reich. On August 5, 1942, giant pillars of dust rose over the Russian steppe, marking the advance of the 6th Army, an elite German combat unit dispatched by Hitler to capture the industrial city of Stalingrad and press on to the oil fields of Azerbaijan. The Germans were supremely confident; in three years, they had not suffered a single defeat.The Luftwaffe had already bombed the city into ruins. German soldiers hoped to complete their mission and be home in time for Christmas. The siege of Stalingrad lasted five months, one week, and three days. Nearly two million men and women died, and the 6th Army was completely destroyed. Considered by many historians to be the turning point of World War II in Europe, the Soviet Army’s victory foreshadowed Hitler’s downfall and the rise of a communist superpower. Bestselling author William Craig spent five years researching this epic clash of military titans, traveling to three continents in order to review documents and interview hundreds of survivors. Enemy at the Gates is the enthralling result: the definitive account of one of the most important battles in world history. It became a New York Times bestseller and was also the inspiration for the 2001 film of the same name, starring Joseph Fiennes and Jude Law.

A “virtually faultless” account of the final weeks of World War II in the Pacific and the definitive history of the battle for Stalingrad together in one volume (The New York Times Book Review). Author William Craig traveled to three different continents, reviewed thousands of documents, and interviewed hundreds of survivors to write these New York Times–bestselling histories, bringing the Eastern Front and the Pacific Theater of World War II to vivid life. The Fall of Japan masterfully recounts the dramatic events that brought an end to the Pacific War and forced a once-mighty nation to surrender unconditionally. From the ferocious fighting on Okinawa to the all-but-impossible mission to drop the second atom bomb, and from Franklin D. Roosevelt’s White House to the Tokyo bunker where tearful Japanese leaders first told the emperor the war was lost, Craig draws on Japanese and American perspectives to capture the pivotal events of these climactic weeks with spellbinding authority. Enemy at the Gates chronicles the bloodiest battle of the war and the beginning of the end for the Third Reich. On August 5, 1942, giant pillars of dust rose over the Russian steppe, marking the advance of Hitler’s 6th Army. The Germans were supremely confident; in three years, they had not suffered a single defeat. The siege of Stalingrad lasted five months, one week, and three days. Nearly two million men and women died, and the 6th Army was completely destroyed. The Soviet victory foreshadowed Nazi Germany’s downfall and the rise of a communist superpower. Heralded by Cornelius Ryan, author of The Longest Day, as “the best single work on the epic battle of Stalingrad,” Enemy at the Gates was the inspiration for the 2001 film of the same name, starring Joseph Fiennes and Jude Law.

Die aufsehenerregende Darstellung der russischen Sicht auf die Schlacht von Stalingrad Bis heute wird »Stalingrad«, der Wendepunkt des Zweiten Weltkriegs, vorwiegend aus deutscher Sicht geschildert, auch weil bislang authentische russische Stimmen fehlen. Dies hat sich durch den spektakulären Fund des Russlandhistorikers Jochen Hellbeck geändert: Hunderte Seiten Gesprächsprotokolle, die bis vor kurzem in russischen Archiven unter Verschluss waren. Sie ermöglichen eine ganz neue Sicht auf die Schlacht: einfache Soldaten und Generäle, Kampffliegerinnen und Sanitäterinnen berichteten schon während der Kämpfe einer Historikerkommission von ihren Erlebnissen – offen, ungeschminkt, hautnah. Eine umfassende Neubewertung des verzweifelten russischen Kampfes ums Überleben der Heimat. »Tatsächlich existiert bis heute vielfach ein stereotypes Bild des Rotarmisten: roh, triebhaft, ein so gefährliches wie anonymes Massenwesen. Hellbeck präsentiert in seinem Buch erstmals Dokumente, die dem eine authentische russische Perspektive der Stalingrader Schlacht entgegensetzen.« Martin Hubert, Deutschlandradio »Eine dichte Analyse und eine reiche Quellenpräsentation« Christian Staas, Die Zeit »Es sind diese Unmittelbarkeit und das breite militärische und soziale Spektrum der Protokolle, die dem Laien tiefe Einblicke in das blutige Ringen um Stalingrad ermöglichen.« Linus Schöpfer, Tages-Anzeiger »Nun, fast 70 Jahre später, lässt sich mit nicht gekannter Tiefenschärfe nachvollziehen, wie die Sieger von Stalingrad die Schicksalsschlacht an der Wolga erlebten.« Michael Sontheimer, Der Spiegel
