History
Learn history by examples
The Battle for Stalingrad was one of the most memorable events of the World War II. It began on the steppe-lands lying between the Volga and Don rivers, on the distant approaches to the city; gradually more and more forces were introduced into the fighting, which finally encompassed an area of over 100,000 square kilometres. Mamayev Kurgan, rising to a height of 102 metres above sea level, is situated just to the north of the city centre. During the Battle for Stalingrad (now Volgograd) Mamayev Hill was called the most important hill in Russia.
