WINSTON CHURCHILL: THE VALIANT YEARS - SAND AND SNOW (Black/White, 22 Minutes.)
Narrated by Richard Burton, this installment of the 1960 television series based on Winston Churchill's book "The Second World War" analyses the simultaneous battles that stymied for the first time Germany's unbroken string of military victories: the Battle of El Alamein and the Battle of Stalingrad.

BATTLELINE: STALINGRAD (Black/White, 24 Minutes.)
This episode from the epic 1963 documentary series featuring an account from a soldier from each side of a particular battle compares the experiences of a German infantryman and a Soviet defender of Stalin's namesake city.

THE UNKNOWN WAR: THE DEFENSE OF STALINGRAD (Color, 45 Minutes.) / VICTORY AT STALINGRAD (Color, 45 Minutes.)
Gems within the MediaOutlet.com archives, these are two installments of the Soviet Union's 26 hour epic documentary series "The Great Patriotic War", which was released to American audiences during the detente era of the 1970s as "The Unknown War", a title meant to reflect America's knowledge of much of what happened on the Eastern Front during World War II, and both hosted and narrated by the eminent American actor Burt Lancaster. Even if you've seen documentary footage on the Battle of Stalingrad as part of American and British productions, much of the film footage in these documentaries appeared nowhere in the west, before or since. A must-have, filled with some of the starkest battle footage ever filmed.

THE TWENTIETH CENTURY: STALINGRAD (Black/White, 24 Minutes.)
Walter Cronkite narrates as this venerable epic World War II documentary series covers the greatest battle of the war, ironically one of the least well known chapters of the conflict to those in the western world.


August 23, 1942: World War II: The Battle Of Stalingrad: The largest 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, begins, a battle lasting until February 2, 1943. Marked by fierce close quarters combat and direct assaults on civilians in air raids, it was the largest (nearly 2.2 million personnel) and bloodiest (1.8-2 million killed, wounded or captured) battle in the history of warfare. After their defeat at Stalingrad, the German High Command had to withdraw vast military forces from the Western Front to replace their losses. The German offensive to capture Stalingrad began using the 6th Army and elements of the 4th Panzer Army. The attack was supported by intensive Luftwaffe bombing that reduced much of the city to rubble. The fighting degenerated into house-to-house fighting; both sides poured reinforcements into the city. By mid-November 1942, the Germans had pushed the Soviet defenders back at great cost into narrow zones along the west bank of the Volga River. On November 19, 1942, the Red Army launched Operation Uranus, a two-pronged attack targeting the weaker Romanian and Hungarian armies protecting the German 6th Army's flanks. The Axis forces on the flanks were overrun and the 6th Army was cut off and surrounded in the Stalingrad area. Adolf Hitler ordered that the army stay in Stalingrad and make no attempt to break out; instead, attempts were made to supply the army by air and to break the encirclement from the outside. Heavy fighting continued for another two months. By the beginning of February 1943, the Axis forces in Stalingrad had exhausted their ammunition and food. The remaining units of the 6th Army surrendered. The battle lasted five months, one week and three days.
