German 71st Infantry Division Kleeblat (Cloverleaf)
194th Infantry Regiment
2nd Battalion
Rattenkrieg (“rat-war”) raged every square foot of Stalingrad on September, 30 1942. Basements became assault origins as German infantry adopted tactics to avoid crossing deadly streets plagued by new Russian urban warfare. Engineers would breech adjoining walls with 3kg pole charges and clear the resulting entrys with FMW 35 flame-throwers as Landsers stood ready with cluster grenades to remove any surviving Russians before the squad entered and began their bottom to top attack on the buildings. Here we see 1st Company 2nd Platoon on the verge of detonation as the section leader signals his go ahead. Their day is sure to end as a major victory. But, will it be from clearing the building, or just taking the kitchen? Regardless, tomorrow they’ll wake and do it all again.

Great pics again mate. Really well posed and although maybe a little dark for some I love the lighting, really atmospheric.

Really nice. If the intent was a night scene, you did it well. Those sneaky Germans.

Thank you for the great comments. I was trying for the dark and moody atmosphere. It took me a weekend to get the effects to where I wanted.
I plan on posting a few more dio's from the past, and then to my current projects. I do 95% WW2, but have started putting together a few SHTF/EOTWAWKI figures. Nothing assembled yet. Just gathering parts so far.

Great post. The pics remind me of the stories in the comic books I used to read as a lad.

Sorry for digging this up, but I just had to say how well this is staged/posed/photographed. The lighting is very atmospheric. You can feel the horror and madness.
