By the end of 1941, the German blitzkrieg has swept across open plains of the Soviet Union and stopped at the gates of Moscow as winter set in. The halt was only temporary as German were back on the offensive in the summer of 1942. The attack sliced into the southern front, aiming at the oilfields of the Caucasus.
Two army groups charged foward, one heading to the mountain country in the south, the other focused on a small city on the Volga River called Stalingrad. The unstoppable German offensive was pushing Soviet morale to a breaking point as the most pivotal battles on the Eastern Front were about to be fought on the streets of Stalingrad and in the Russian Steppe.
