The Battle of Stalingrad and the Battle of Normandy were two vital battles in World War II Stalingrad was the site of a critical WWII Soviet victory that terminated Germanys advance to the east Peaceful Normandy took its place in history as the starting point in the triumphant march across Europe Both these intense events were extremely significant in the outcome of the second world war After the Germans failed to win the war totally in 1941 they decided to start a fresh effort and hoped that this would lead to victory This effort eventually led to the city of Stalingrad in 1942 Different from the the three pronged attack of the previous year this one had two attack directions One from Kharkov to Stalingrad the other from the Crimea to Caucasus Though this push was still very large It included 78 Axis divisions almost two million men Its main purpose was to cut Stalins supply along the Don and Volga rivers Therefore cutting him off from oil in the Caucausus and Lend-Lease aid from the west This battle would last for more than a year and could be considered one of the most important battles of the war mainly because of two large powerful armies meeting each other head on Originally Stalingrad hadnt really been an objective It became one however after Hitler grew to have a personal obsession with it It being named after Stalin himself his enemy made it a conquest he had to take on The loss at Stalingrad could be partially blamed on Hitler himself He withdrew into a shell during this period concentrating on nothing more than the city In the meantime allowing for things to crumble around him Fortunately for Hitler an equally obsessive leader faced him Stalin had a similar obsession with Moscow and its defense Though it isnt debatable whether or not Moscow was an important city to be in possession of Stalin refused to believe
