foreword or summary of your program.
Compared to the one-
day tour we shall have time to deeper analyze the reasons of the WWII and
speak of why two regimes with similar features appeared at about the same
time in Germany and Russia. Also see the common political methods Hitler
and Stalin used to turn Germany and the Soviet Union into powerful military
units eagerly following their leaders. We shall put seemingly unrelated
details into a big historical picture. The program will be now split into
three basic stages of the battle: period of the Russian retreat, war of
attrition in the city and Russian counterattack.
We shall provide you with maps,
itinerary and brief sightseeing plan either before you come to
Volgograd/email/ or when you arrive in Volgograd.. All the sights will be
illustrated with original WWII pictures. Most of our information is based on
personal accounts of Stalingraders and participants of the battle .
