INTRODUCTION The American writer Edwin P. Hoyt, who wrote this excellent book, lives and works in Japan. Hoyt is remarkable in his portrayal of the Red Army at Stalingrad

INTRODUCTION The American writer Edwin P. God only knows why Russian history is better seen by an American scholar from the Land of the Rising Sun than from America; maybe because Stalingrad is closer to Tokyo than to Washington. Hoyt is remarkable in his portrayal of the Red Army at Stalingrad. He correctly perceives that the entire edifice of the German strategy crumbled on November 19, 1942, under the heavy blows of the Red Army's amazing counteroffensive. Hoyt is correct in showing that the battle served as a turning point in the war, that for the first time the Nazi leaders faced the prospect of a final defeat.

I have been reading about this battle for a number of years and I would rank this in the top third. There are a number of perhaps picky issues that bother me in his research but every so often I gather a gleam of new information.

Even though there are a couple books out there that are better, but longer, ("Stopped at Stalingrad" and "Stalingrad") this is still an absorbing book. I have read a number of "war" books and still enjoyed it. It is worth the read if you have not read any detailed books on this battle.

What a waste..........over 4 million Russians and 2 million Germans slaughtered and a city left in total ruin.

Stalin and Hitler hated each others form of government but still respected each other as a ruler.

Hitler saw the Russians as a lower race, so he figured on an easy victory. He bit off more than he could chew, for he wanted it all (of Russia), and the lives of many Germans paid the price. For Hitler there was no let up. Fight to the death or hold out till the end for mien furor. He was stopped in Stalingrad.

The Russians seem to have a total disregard for human life. Perhaps that is why they were victorious over an advanced mechanized army. Stalin also made a mistake in an offensive that almost cost his country. In fact he made many out of stubbornness and greed. But he and his generals learned after many defeats how to fight the Germans. The Russians eventually starved the Germans out and overwhelmed them with their T-34 tanks, masses of men (with woman) and partisans. The Germans ended up slaughtering horses and their dogs to stay alive. The negative 40 degree weather was too much for an ill clothed army.

Thank the Russians for their hold out for who knows what would have become of the world if the Germans kept their army in the east.

The last war (Stalingrad was a battle) that was fought with such disregard for human life was W.W.I. Amazing as it is, God entered the battle one day for a Christmas truce. On Dec. 25 the Germans and the British laid down their arms. They discovered they were very much alike. They traded belongings along with an organized soccer game in "no man's land" between the fronts. They then went back to killing each other the next day. I thought.... might all of the ranks have ran for no mans land to shake the enemies hand and stand with them. What would the leaders and the officers have done. Shot them all for cowardice?

One can rule over millions, no matter good or evil.

It is difficult, if not impossible, for an American to truly understand the carnage, death and destruction that took place during the Battle of Stalingrad. While we are rightfully horrified at battles that produce thousands of casualties, the Battle of Stalingrad produced hundreds of thousands if not millions. This is just not a perswpective that is within out mindset. However, Hoyt does a superior job bringing the destruction home.
Hoyt does a splendid job describing the whats, wheres and whys of the battle. He gives a complete overview of the acts that led to the battle as well as an analysis of how the battle came to be fought and the way in which it was fought. While explaining the history of the battle, Hoyt never forgets that the true story of Stalingrad is the history of the individual Russian soldiers and commanders that should of admitted defeat, but did not and ultimately prevailed. He also adeptly explains how the brutality of the Nazi invasion came back to haunt the invaders and unite a country that heretofore was horribly splintered.
What is also very interesting about 199 Days is Hoyt's treatment of Stalin and Hitler. He describes the political, psychological and other forces that shaped their response to the changing circumstances and gives praise and criticism where earned.
This is a first-class treatment of Stalingrad and a must read for anyone who wishes to explore the limits of human suffering and bravery.

In August 1942, all that remained between the advancing Wehrmacht and Stalingrad were open Steppe. That soon changed, as one sees in 199 Days by Hoyt. He is clever enough to give a good background of the war in the east from June 41, through the winter and on. This helps to explain to the reader why the Germans made some decisions, and why the Soviets made some of theirs. The only problem with this book is the slightly "pro Soviet" stance. While I won't argue for the merits of Naziism (for there are none), I also will not argue for the merits of Stalinism. These were two armies, essentially the tools of two despots, a point which Hoyt does indeed make. Having said that, he seems to put a human face onto the Soviet soldier more so than the German soldier. The end is good, however, the follow up winter offensive by the Soviets could have been at least alluded to in the form of an epilogue (The Soviet offensive was pressed on, well beyond its supplies, and hundreds of thousands of Soviets were captured after the fall of Stalingrad, in the area of Kharkhov). Overall, not a bad book. If you know nothing of the east front, buy it. If you already consider yourself somewhat in the know concerning the eastern front, then save your money.

This is a very readable account by Edwin Hoyt captures the feel of this truly horrific battle. Readers get the background and details, and the author's crisp style captures the feel of this monstrously brutal battle. Readers see how the Germans missed their chance at early victory, soon finding themselves drawn into a meat grinder dictated by the Red Army's ferocious defense of the city. And as many readers know, this occurred after the Red Army (and Russian people) had suffered staggering losses due to a combination of Nazi brutality, Soviet blunders, and Stalin's cruelties. We also see how Hitler's intransigence led the Germans to stay in Stalingrad long after their chances of victory had vanished. With the arrival of winter the German 6th Army was trapped, freezing in minus-40 degree weather, and killing horses and dogs to stay alive.

Some hard-core military history buffs see this book as non-scholarly, but most other readers should find it informative, gripping, and worth their time.
