This scene of long-besieged, battered and tattered Stalingrad is a symbol of great defense. It has caused the action on the shores of the Volga to be likened to the Verdun stand of World War I. Fresh Soviet Army troops move against a background of blasted structures to bolster defenses. The buildings are broken, but the Russian courage and defense line are not. Reports today indicate slight German gains, but Soviet reinforcements are coming in while the sting of Nazi thrusts grows less sharp, October 1942.
