Stalingrad

Trivia: In the English subtitles, the German troops are addressed as "Storm Troopers." The correct title of these men were "Sturmpionieren" or "Assault Engineers", who were highly trained in street fighting using flamethrowers, explosives, and other specialized equipment.

Trivia: The scene where the Soviet tank fires its main cannon, cutting a German soldier in half, was inspired by an actual incident in William Craig's book about the battle of Stalingrad, "Enemy at the Gates."
