Take a look at Stalingrad
We’ve already shown you the key exclusive features of Stalingrad. Now it's time to take a closer look at the city itself, which has been under siege for 200 long days and nights.
Stalingrad was not just a strategically important city, but if captured the Soviet Union's oil supply from the Caucasus would be cut off. Read its name aloud and you will immediately see why Nazi Germany spared no resources to take a city named after its main enemy in eastern Europe. One of the fiercest battles of World War II unfolded here on a short stretch of the front.
From the first days of the siege the German forces were pushing hard into the city, and battles with the defending Soviet army took place for literally every house. Both sides used any means they could to achieve victory, from trophy weapons to much more unusual methods. For example, psychological warfare, which attempted to get the enemy to lay down their arms and report on the defeat of his army in other nearby battles.
Stalingrad will soon become the next Enlisted campaign, and we’ve taken great care to create these battlefields as close to the real life locations as possible. Many major buildings have been recreated with photographic precision. Check out some of the city's most interesting locations and consider your tactics for attacking and defending them. It won't be long before you'll need it.
Everything Soviet citizens needed was sold here. The German 6th Army stationed its headquarters right here, and the commander of the army, Field Marshal General Friedrich Paulus - eventually surrendered here.
The Railway station
From here Stalingrad prepared for visitors, and indeed it was here where the fiercest battles would take place. The railway station building looks much like a fortress — many firing positions on two floors and inside the labyrinthine hallways within.
The House of communal workers
One of the brightest representatives of the ambitious "houses of specialists" was built in Stalingrad just before the war — by design it was intended to impress city guests entering the station building for many years. Unfortunately, what remained of this architectural masterpiece after the war could no longer be restored.
The Repnikova House
One of the most notable cultural monuments that survived both the revolution and the siege of Stalingrad. You can visit it today, not only in Enlisted.
The Gorky Theater
The center of cultural life in the city, located just a few blocks away from the railway station, during the siege it was one of the few safe havens from bombing and shelling due to its robust structure.
But Stalingrad offers more than just the beauty of its rare surviving architecture. The catacombs, basements, living spaces and sturdy halls of Soviet buildings were able to withstand the onslaught of thousands of shells and bombs, and in many ways its these more mundane areas that bring a city such as this to life.
In the next blog, we'll tell you all about the levels of this new campaign.
