Welcome Shockwave, good to have you here.

You asked about rules.

The main things are to use common sense and to be courteous. Those two factors are very important, even when there is disagreement.

Post away and have fun.

Best Regards,

Hi SwS, welcome aboard the Otto S. Bismarck/Torrerio cruise ship line. As to your question, yes I agree with you on how Stalingrad had partly influenced the outcome of the war. A few of the reasons are: That the Germans were stopped cold (pardon the pun) from their attempted advances across the Volga. In Army Group South and as part of Guderians forces, the farthest Eastward that any unit of the Army made, was to within about 20 miles from the town of Astrakahn.

Also, it proved to be a huge propaganda victory as well as a military victory, for ol Uncle Joe.

I must have missed your post here earlier. Welcome, and I see you have already been busy!! I'm impressed with what you have been reading and what you have already learned. I look forward to your posts. I especially liked seeing the photos etc of your grandfather on the Honour Roll.
