Battle of Stalingrad
September 3, 1942
Stalin ended up joining the Bolsheviks under Lenin. He left Siberia by train on January 17, 1904. He had no income because he decided to quit his job, so he stayed with his circle of friends for food and clothes.
Later in life he became the leader of the Soviet Union in the mid-20th century and became Lenin's right hand companion, which helped him rise to the heights of power after the Russian Revolution.
German offensives sent another approach to Stalingrad in the spring of 1943. A nine month titanic battle followed after they sent their offensives. The German Sixth Army was almost completely destroyed. This was just the beginning of the end of Germany, but it would still take three years of desperate fighting and millions of people dying.
