Thank You brave Russian soldiers, people and partizans for defeating the homicidal, genocidal German maniacs and for saving humanity in Eastern Europe as well as Russia so the people of Eastern Europe can enjoyu life in their own countries. The Battle of Stalingrad,proved the Germans were not invincible and was not only a great moral victory, but marked the destruction and capture of Germany's Sixth army and Marshall Von Paulus.

The Battle of Stalingrad was followed soon after by the greatest tank battle ever at Kursk/Orel and marked the destruction of German armor and the german defeat in the East as they begam retreat back to Germany.
