WWII and the Battle of Stalingrad

            During the course of World War II there were a number of turning points that impacted the outcome of the World War II. One of the most important and influential turning points that effected the outcome of the war was the Battle of Stalingrad 23 August 1942 – 2 February 1943. This was a defining moment in the war because it showed Russia's unwillingness to be defeated on home grounds, the battle of Stalingrad showed that Hitler was incapable of accepting defeat and surrender as well as it severely demoralised German troops and equipment. For these reasons the Battle of Stalingrad was a turning point in World War II and had dramatically changed the outcome of World War II in Europe.
             Despite all the reasons for the cause of the battle of Stalingrad Russia wasn't gonna give up nor were they willing to accept defeat on home grounds. Many historians strongly believe that the reason for Germanys attack on Stalingrad was because of its name, Hitler hated Joseph Stalin who was Russia's current leader. Another reason that could of caused the Battle of Stalingrad was Hitlers idea of Case Blue later renamed Operation Braunschweig. Operation Braunschweig was in the summer of 1942. It was a plan that Adolf Hitler came up with to cut off all Russia's Forces, Stalingrad was one of Russia's leading industrial towns many of its tractor factories were turned into tank factories. The planned to cut of Stalingrad from many of its neighbouring countries, allowing a decrease in men and equipment. Seeing as this was where USSR (Union of Soviet Socialist Republics) go most of their equipment from, them loosing access to Stalingrad would of been a major down fall in their part of World War II. Just before the Battle of Stalingrad was what many historians would argue to be the start of the holocaust, and as many of Russia's jews were taken from their home. Stalin was enraged by Hitlers act and knew that Russia would stop at nothing to protect its city and citizens.
