I am looking for books on the battle for Stalingrad during WWII, I know of Glantz's trilogy on the topic, this seems a bit above what i currently know. I am wondering if there is another book I should read first that would allow me to 'ramp up' to the Glantz's trilogy.

Beevor's book is pretty good as a readable, popular general history.

"Enemy at the Gates" by Craig.

That and Beevor's book are the two most popular ones, and well rounded accounts, so they make good starting points. If you read only one, read Beevor.

"Enemy at the Gates" was the first book I read on Stalingrad, and still one of my favorites.

I am going to estimate in about 60 days. The game is essentially finished but I am having some original freelance art done for some of the German and Russian event cards. You can check my game website for updates too www.thehistoricalgamecompany.com.
