German Soldiers: Unseen Large Images From The Battle Of STALINGRAD

We have seen many pictures and videos of the battle of Stalingrad. But the thirst for more, perhaps, remains. And why not. The world had never seen and will never see such a violent, brutal battle again in the history of man. 

So here goes... I have culled some images of German soldiers (The pictures of the Russians are always too "propagandist") which I think are quite rare.
