Good video, I remember watching it years ago...but like most History channel shows it has a big mix of war footage...I saw alot of Kharkov..and later war winter uniforms. I realize they need to fill an hour show so need lots of different footage.

I remember one show that was about the invasion of Poland...and they were showing Panther and Tiger tanks...lol.

Jacuin is correct when he says there were a lot of cobblestone streets. There were also a lot of dirt streets. So it kind of depends on where in town you want to be. Down around the famous department store and the train station, a lot of cobblestone. In the suburbs and around the workers residences near the factories, a lot of dirt.

I have 3 or 4 photo books of Stalingrad during the battle and I was surprised at the amount of dirt roads actually.

Hello..trying to plan a diorama in Stalingrad...does anyone know what the streets were made of, Brick, Cobblestone, Paved, Concrete? I believe it was a "newer" city.....so maybe paved or concrete?

I cant seem to find any information online.

Thank you in advance,
Eric



Friend good afternoon !!!
Within some photos that were already out there and were cobblestone stones, much of the city.
