Stalingrad, (formerly Tsaritsyn, currently Volgograd), Volga river, Southern Russia
The Battle of Stalingrad was one of the closest and most pivotal military battles of World War II. The battle was fought from August 23, 1942 to February 2, 1943. German troops were decimated by the defending Soviets in the battle which involved more personnel than any other battle of the war. It is often regarded as one of the bloodiest battles in the history of warfare as it resulted in approximately two million casualties. It is featured as a map for Battlefield 1942.
The battle for the city centers around the bombed out port and rail facilities where both forces must battle through the bombed out buildings from their respective uncapturable bases to control the 3 capturable points. Being the smallest map in the game, it is largely infantry based with a few armored vehicles and cars available for transport. Due to the map's small size, much action takes place between the flags.
