This paper describes and discusses, the battle of Stalingrad, and argues that the battle was a profound event and consequently, because of the victory over the German Army, the Second World War was won on the Eastern Front. The overall structure of this paper is in three main sections with smaller components in each. The first section consists of the period leading up to the battle of Stalingrad, followed by a comprehensive analysis of the battle of Stalingrad itself. Finally, the aftermath and the consequences of the victory of the Red Army at Stalingrad are examined on a macro level in terms of the impact on both Germany and the Soviet Union.
From the Paper:"Throughout the Second World War the Germans had been successful in obtaining territory throughout Europe. The overall goal of the Germans was to expand the policy of "Lebensraum," which was the expansion of living space for Germany and would be obtained by invading the Soviet Union. Strategic planning for the invasion of the Soviet Union was initially undertaken under the code names of Otto, Fritz and Barbarossa (Fugate, 1984: 61). Shortly after the fall of France, Adolf Hitler held a conference on July 21, 1940 with his service chiefs Brauchitsch (army), Jeschonnek (Luftwaffe representative), Raeder (navy), Keitel and Judl (armed forces high command) (Fugate, 1984: 61). It was at this conference that a general agenda for an Eastern invasion campaign was established (Fugate, 1984: 61)."
