These amazing colorized photos of the Battle of Stalingrad by Olga. There is something seeing them this way that brings out the true horrors of war.
The Battle of Stalingrad (23 August 1942 – 2 February 1943) was the most major confrontation of World War II in which Germany and its allies fought the Soviet Union for control of the city of Stalingrad (now Volgograd) in Southern Russia.
Marked by fierce close quarters combat and direct assaults on civilians in air raids, it is often regarded as the single largest (nearly 2.2 million personnel) and bloodiest(1.7–2 million killed, wounded or captured) battle in the history of warfare. It was an extremely costly defeat for German forces, and the Army High Command had to withdraw vast military forces from the West to replace their losses.
