What is called the bloodiest battle in human history with combined casualties (military and civilian) estimated over 1.5 million?
The Battle of Stalingrad was a battle between Germany and its allies and the Soviet Union for the Soviet City of Stalingrad (modern Volgograd). This battle took place between August 1942 and February 2, 1943 and was an important event of the WWII. The battle was finally ended with the Soviet victory in 1943, which was quite derogatory for Hitler. He was sure in the superiority of his army and laid a lot of emphasis upon the battle.
The Battle of Stalingrad is now considered to be the bloodiest battle of all times. This crucial engagement was marked by cruel indifference for military and civilian casualties both on the German and the Soviet side. The estimated number of deaths goes beyond 1.5 million people, some historians talk about 2 million of victims.
