A special meaning for me.

My Father's German Nephew went missing at the battle of Stalingrad.
The last thing the family got from him was a Xmas letter in Dec of 1942.
After that - nothing. Pops spoke of it often.

Note: Just to avoid confusion I myself was born and raised in the States -
it was my father who kept up a close correspondence with his family in Germany.

We in the West (Americans, Brits and French) take too
much credit for the defeat of Germany. In my opinion the beginning of the end
for Germany in WWII was due to the Soviet forces at Stalingrad - not the West at Normandy.

Many historians consider the battle for Stalingrad the most important single military battle in human history.

These are great. Have you tried any in grainy B&W, particularly the first and last?

I didn't do it. B&W stylization is possible. But I guess, it is better to look at old pictures of real war photografers like Yevgeny Khaldei and Robert Capa. There was the truth, here is the game.
