After the swift advances made by German armed forces during Operation Barbarossa and the opening stages of the War in the East, the Battle of Stalingrad marked a major turning point for the Soviet and Allied forces as a whole as the German advance was not only halted, but repelled all together. From August of 1942 onwards, some of the deadliest and most ferocious fighting of the war took place as the Red Army clashed with the wehrmacht’s Panzers and raids by the Luftwaffe in almost continuous bombardment. Soviet forces held the line and managed to exhaust and overwhelm the German forces forcing an eventual surrender of what forces remained after high command had forbidden a retreat.
