‘Stalingrad’s’ vision of war a stark one

We’ve seen so many war movies in America that part of us thinks that war makes sense, particularly World War II. But the Russians know things that we don’t know. They know that even winning a war can be disastrous. World War II cost 400,000 American lives, a big number, but the Soviet Union lost more than 24 million. Or to put it another way, more than 1 out of every 8 people in the Soviet Union died in World War II.
