    "Good listen"

    Most WW2 obsessives like myself will know all about Glantz. This is a condensed version of his 5 volume epic and it stands well despite being a lot shorter.

    Obviously being an audible book no maps or photos. Still for anyone looking for an audible book on Stalingrad then this is the one.

    "Animated maps please, constant barrage of unit numbers doesn’t get it."

    I listened to this but would buy an electronic edition that had computer driven maps of how ALL these units moved about. How hard could that be guys?

    "An incredible story made mind-numbingly tedious"
    What would have made Stalingrad better?

    This book was tedious beyond description. This is a made-up but accurate example of quite nearly every single paragraph: "110th Rifle Unit of Zikov's 2nd Army Division surrounded the breakout of the Romanian 4th Infantry and the Hungarian 43rd Division, closing the pincers around the salient on the Don bridgehead established by 15th Corps of the 6th Army suppliemented by the diversion of the remnants of 3rd Tank Corps to 6th Army's flanks. Heavy fighting ensued. Across the Don, Zhukov mustered the 112th Rifles of the 3rd Mechanized Cavalry of 2nd Army, which had been low on rations and ammunition since the advance of 3rd Army on the Operation Neptune breakout of November 2nd, delayed from November 1 because of the failure of the tanker trucks of 32nd Supply Corps to navigate the cratered road from Company Headquarters". Hours and hours and hours of this. Kudos to the narrator for keeping me engaged as long as he did. I eventually decided to give up before finishing. I did not intend it as a bedtime story but I could not stay awak when I listened to the droning on the movement of army divisions. An utterly pointless rehashing of the bureuacratic minutiae of one history's largest, bloodiest, dramatic, and most momentous battles and one that decided the fate of the Third Reich two years before the Western Allied invasion of Normandy. I'm exchanging this for "Enemy at the Gates".


    What could David M. Glantz and Jonathan M. House have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Not write it.


    Have you listened to any of Paul Woodson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Don't know, but he is an excellent narrator for historical nonfiction in spite of the material.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Anger, sadness, disappoinment. At the book.
