Artillery in Stalingrad was ever present on both sides of the battle. As a result, good observation posts in the crumbling city were of great value and enemy observation posts were prime attack targets. So it was that this cold autumn morning of 1942, men of the 29thMotorized Infantry Division, assaulted a nearby Soviet observation post. However, the Soviets just wouldn’t stand idle by.
