Stalingrad was one of the major battles that became a turning point in WW2 on the eastern front in Russia. Hitler decided to launch a new offensive in July 1942 with the aim of taking Stalingrad. General Friedrich Paulus, who commanded the 6th Army, was given orders to capture the city. Stalingrad was the centre of all rail and water communications for Southern Russia which made it a prime target for capture.
Another sprue arrived, though this time they were from Warlord, and fairly modern, being WW2 Late German Infantry. These are the first plastic World War Two miniatures available to my knowledge in 28mm, not only from Warlord but in general.
