The Lighthouse of Stalingrad

  • This event has passed.

Iain MacGregor

Saturday 8th October 15:20 - 16:20 | Ballroom

The Lighthouse of Stalingrad sheds new light on the iconic battle through the prism of the two units who fought for the very heart of the city itself. Iain MacGregor traveled to both German and Russian archives (now likely inaccessible Western historians for years to come) to unearth previously unpublished testimonies by soldiers on both sides of the conflict. MacGregor lays to rest the questions as to the identity of the real heroes of this epic battle for one of the city’s most famous buildings and provides authoritative answers as to how the battle finally ended and influenced the conclusion of the siege of Stalingrad.
