Today is the 64th anniversary of the beginning of the Soviet offensive around Stalingrad--the offensive which would inflict a massive defeat on the Germans and helpd change the course on the eastern front.

Somebody else already made a list about the battle, so I'll just point you there.

"Hilter: Ah! Stalingrad! Ha ha ha, Heinri...Reginald, you have the wrong map here you silly old leg-before-vicket English person.

Bimmler: I'm sorry mein Fuhrer, mein (cough) mein Dickie old chum.

Landlady: Oh, lucky Mr Johnson pointed that out. You wouldn't have had much fun in Stalingrad, would you? Ha ha.
(stony silence)
I said, you wouldn't have had much fun in Stalingrad, would you?

Hilter: Not much fun in Stalingrad, no."

I just can't help but think of this. Sorry.

Should you go to that part of Russia, there are many memorials about the event.

I've never been to that area, but I have been to St. Pete/Leningrad, Moscow, and Kiev, and the war memorials are touch and impressive.
