Researching Stalingrad and the experience of war

Antony Beevor
Thursday, 6 Dec 2001
The successful military historian and author of the book "Stalingrad" spoke about the research involved in recreating the battle of Stalingrad and the challenges of delving in the Russian Ministry of defence archives. He explained that Stalingrad is the byword for Soviet heroism, and Russian defensiveness on the subject today is a very significant pointer to its present mentality about its relationship with the past and the outside world.
