Makeup of small units at Stalingrad?


Recommended Posts

I have been plowing through Glantz's latest book "Armageddon in Stalingrad" which focuses on the urban fighting in september-november.

Most German units were already not up to 100% TO&E because of previous operations from may to august, although the best would have been at 70-80%. However, just a few days of fighting took most units to below 50%.

It was even worse for the Russians. Many full strength units were ground down to 20-30% strength in a few days.

In both cases, the surviving units would be left on the line to carry on. Few units received replacements.
