Communist Russia

The battle of Stalingrad was a part of WorldWarII, fought by Nazi Germany( represented by Adolf Hitler) and Communist Russia( represented by Josef Stalin). This battle is also known to some as the bloodiest battle in history, which is supported by the pictures below.

Stalingrad was important to Hitler as it was a major industrial city in the banks of Volga River(a vital transport route between Caspian Sea and northern Russia) and its capture would secure the left flank of the German armies as they advanced into the Caucasus. Another factor is because Stalingrad bore the word "Stalin", which could make the city's capture an idealogical and propaganda coup.

However, Stalin realized this. He then ordered anyone that was strong enough to hold a rifle to be sent to war.

A note to remember:
Germans felt that the Treaty of Versailles was unfair. A leader(Hitler) rose to promise to solve their problem.
Stalin promised to ensure Russia's safety by making "Motherland" strong. Russians were supportive of this.

This resulted in a fierce fight as both sides were equally motivated to fight for their country, which led to many deaths, as shown below.
