attle of stalingrad became the key turning point of the war for the allies. With the German’s loss of their entire 6th army, the resources lost in the battle, and the amount of men captured or killed in action, it halted the Nazis progression into Russia. With this failure, The Nazis were not able to create another huge offensive. They were then forced to retreat out of Russia and this would start the march to Berlin. This defeat crippled the Nazi war effort and caused them to begin their two front defensive war after the invasion of D-Day began. With the huge success for the Soviets at Stalingrad, it gave them national pride and support in their leader. This would immensely help them in their war efforts against the Nazis and would help them continue the push into the heartland of Nazi Germany. But tensions were also created with the Allies themselves due to the fact of the United States and Britain not send aid to the Soviets to help in the fight. The victory did not come without a price. With the enormous loss of life during the battle, The Nazis continued with their acts of attrition by torching and destroying villages that they encountered during their retreat. These atrocities would inspire many similar acts by their soviet counterparts on their way to Berlin. Significance in History (“So what?”) Although the Battle of Stalingrad was a major victory for the allied powers, and possibly the most pivotal battle of world war 2, it was still a crushing blow to Soviet Russia. While the city of Stalingrad was under siege, civilians were beaten, tortured, and starved by German troops. A city that was once populated by more than one million people had dwindled down to just a meager thirty five thousand. There were so many deaths that occurred, that every year people go out in search of soldier remains. According to a New York Times article, the bodies of nearly 800 soldiers were discovered in 2017 alone. Despite massive civilian and soldier casualties, Soviet Russia still emerged from World War 2 a world superpower. Part of that was due to the fact that most of the rest of Europe had been conquered by the German army. While every other major European country was defeated by Germany, Soviet Russia was alone in their success over the nazis.>GET ANSWER
