The Bloodiest Battle in World History

At Stalingrad 3.2 million men and women will die. Those fighting include:

Captain Jack Towers of the US Army Air Corps—who will learn duty, courage and . . . love.

Lieutenant Erich Steinhoff, the Luftwaffe ace—who will watch the city be blanketed by fire.

Colonel Aleksandrovich Krasilov, the Red Air Force star—who will battle Goering's Luftwaffe while searching for his missing wife.

Dr. Zoya Krasilov, the Colonel's wife—who, captured when her hospital is overrun, will escape a Nazi death camp to join the Resistance and become a Stalingrad sniper.

Lieutenant Natalya Makarova, of USSR's Night Witches—who will fly night sorties over Germany in WWI biplanes . . . and vie for Jack Towers' love.
