I think this would be the official t shirt of the Red Army in Stalingrad during the siege by General Paulas  and the German 6th Army.  Go Team Ivan!

The Battle of Stalingrad took place in and around the present day city of Volgograd between  July 17, 1942 and February 2, 1943. The battle is considered to be the turning point of World War II. The Soviet counter-offensive, which trapped and destroyed the German 6th Army (and their Axis comrades), led to the first large-scale German defeat of the war. The Battle of Stalingrad was the bloodiest in modern history, with combined casualties estimated at over 1,530,000 killed, wounded or captured. Historical reference regarding Stalingrad casualties varies greatly, so while this figure is just an estimate, it may be conservative. Soviet archives put military casualties closer to 2.6 million (excluding civilians).



  • 790,000 Soviet casualties (750,000 Soviet military, 40,000 civilians)

  • 740,000 Axis casualties (91,000 captured)
  • To put this in perspective, the United States lost 416,800 service members during World War II, both in Europe and in the Pacific.
  • The life expectancy for a Soviet private sent to the front was less than 24 hours, while that of a Soviet officer was 3 days.
  • The battle took a toll of roughly 7,700 casualties per day
  • Of the 91,000 German troops taken prisoner, less than 6,000 lived to return home
