Synopsis: Colonel Wilhelm Adam, senior ADC to General Paulus, commander of the German 6th Army at Stalingrad, wrote a compelling and controversial memoir describing the German defeat, his time as a prisoner of war with Paulus, and his conversion to communism. Now, for the first time, his German text has been translated into English. His account gives an intimate insight into events at the 6th Army headquarters during the advance to Stalingrad and the protracted and devastating battle for possession of the city. In vivid detail he recalls the sharp personality clashes among the senior commanders and their intense disputes about tactics and strategy, but he also records the ordeal of the German troops trapped in the encirclement and his own role in the fighting. The extraordinary story he tells, fluently translated by Tony Le Tissier, offers a genuinely fresh perspective on the battle, and it reveals much about the prevailing attitudes and tense personal relationships of the commanders at Stalingrad and at Hitler's headquarters. It deepens understanding of the German side of the fighting and explains the circumstances that led some German soldiers to ask fundamental questions about the cause they were fighting for. Author Details: Wilhelm Adam (1893-1978) fought in the German army in the First World War and joined the Nazi Party in the 1920s. During the Second World War he served as ADC to Generals von Reichenau and Paulus and he was captured along with Paulus by the Red Army at Stalingrad. After his release he settled in East Germany where he co-founded the National Democratic Party of Germany and became a leading politician. He wrote his memoir of Stalingrad, with the assistance of Dr Otto Ruhle, during his retirement in the 1960s.

About the Author: Translator Details: During many years working in several senior official positions in Berlin ? including spells as provost marshal and British governor of Spandau prison ? Tony Le Tissier accumulated a vast knowledge of the Second World War on the Eastern Front. He has published a series of outstanding books on the subject including The Battle of Berlin 1945, Zhukov at the Oder, Race For the Reichstag, Berlin Battlefield Guide and The Siege of Küstrin 1945. He has also translated Prussian Apocalypse: The Fall of Danzig 1945 and Soviet Conquest: Berlin 1945.
