Christmas at Stalingrad
Every book tells a story . . . And the 70 titles in the Pocket Penguins series are emblematic of the renowned breadth and quality that formed part of the original Penguin vision in 1935 and that continue to define our publishing today. Together, they tell one version of the unique story of Penguin Books. Antony Beevor's Stalingrad , published by Penguin in 1998, was a worldwide bestseller, telling one of the most harrowing stories of the Second World War and reminding everybody of the power of narrative history in the hands of an expert story-teller. In Christmas at Stalingrad , Beevor takes us back to December 1942, when the German 6th Army was surrounded by the Russians and facing annihilation. Only thoughts of Christmas kept the soldiers' hopes alive.
