Excellent - rich with detailed information.

An epic story which is described in rich detail. Strongly recommend for those seeking to obtain a strong operational level understanding of the Stalingrad battle. Especially useful for those interested in wargaming the conflict.
The narration held my attention.
Glantz does not disappoint but, like all of his works, accurate period maps are a necessary companion.

An incredible story made mind-numbingly tedious

What would have made Stalingrad better?

This book was tedious beyond description. This is a made-up but accurate example of quite nearly every single paragraph: "110th Rifle Unit of Zikov's 2nd Army Division surrounded the breakout of the Romanian 4th Infantry and the Hungarian 43rd Division, closing the pincers around the salient on the Don bridgehead established by 15th Corps of the 6th Army suppliemented by the diversion of the remnants of 3rd Tank Corps to 6th Army's flanks. Heavy fighting ensued. Across the Don, Zhukov mustered the 112th Rifles of the 3rd Mechanized Cavalry of 2nd Army, which had been low on rations and ammunition since the advance of 3rd Army on the Operation Neptune breakout of November 2nd, delayed from November 1 because of the failure of the tanker trucks of 32nd Supply Corps to navigate the cratered road from Company Headquarters". Hours and hours and hours of this. Kudos to the narrator for keeping me engaged as long as he did. I eventually decided to give up before finishing. I did not intend it as a bedtime story but I could not stay awak when I listened to the droning on the movement of army divisions. An utterly pointless rehashing of the bureuacratic minutiae of one history's largest, bloodiest, dramatic, and most momentous battles and one that decided the fate of the Third Reich two years before the Western Allied invasion of Normandy. I'm exchanging this for "Enemy at the Gates".

What could David M. Glantz and Jonathan M. House have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Not write it.

Have you listened to any of Paul Woodson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Don't know, but he is an excellent narrator for historical nonfiction in spite of the material.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Anger, sadness, disappoinment. At the book.

Academic

This is a VERY academic account of the campaigns of 1942-43, broken down to the regiment/battalion level of who fought where and when. Has virtually no individual stories, just accounting of troop movements, dates, and casualties.

Good book, doesn't work well as an audiobook.

I assume that when this book was written, it was meant to be read rather than listened to.

beat audible book to date

amazing research and presentation of subject material. finally a David Glantz book on audible. only took 2 years of me begging for it.. Hehe. best money spent in a decade. let's hope we see plenty more David Glatz and similar caliber WW2 books coming to audible in the future.

Animated maps please, constant barrage of unit numbers doesn’t get it.

I listened to this but would buy an electronic edition that had computer driven maps of how ALL these units moved about. How hard could that be guys?

Objective look at the Eastern Front

Forget Enemy at the Gates and Cold War propaganda. The Second World War was a very complex, very brutal time and this books illustrates why. Instead of the advanced, sophisticated Nazi technology getting overwhelmed by a horde of soldiers, you see two armies more or less equal in many respects.

Would recommend!

Stalingrad

D. Glantz offers a new evaluation of the one greatest battles in WWII. New material and revised figures abound. The presentation is logical, precise and interesting. While it doesn’t go into boring mathematical figures those given do explain his view of causes and outcomes based on his figures! A lot of new ground is covered that explains why and how the actions and their resulting outcomes occurred! This is a great easy to understand presentation! The reader is very professional and enjoyed his voice and tone! A must read for WWII researchers and those interested in world changing moments in history!
