"From the same production team that was responsible for the great war classic 'Das Boot', this film brings to the screen the story of the bloodiest battle in the history of warfare - the fight for Stalingrad - where over 2 million men lost their lives. Stalingrad was the turning point in the war for the Germans. They never recovered from this devastating defeat. But like 'Das Boot', 'Stalingrad's emphasis is not simply on the battle but on certain young men who fought in that war - their hopes, their fears, their stories." [container]
