Enemy at the Gates: Soviet Forces on the Eastern Front 1942-43 (FW246)
Despite being thrown back from the gates of Moscow in the winter offensive, the Germans were back on the attack in the summer of 1942. The Red Army launched offensive after offensive to throw the invaders back, but nothing could stop them from overrunning southern Russia and reaching the Volga River at Stalingrad.
