I Was There

HISTORY | 10:02 pm

Host Theo Wilson takes a virtual trip into the past, to the Battle of Stalingrad in 1942, to serve as a witness as the underdog Russian army stands on the brink of a stunning victory that will turn the tide of World War II in favor of the Allied forces. One of the bloodiest battles in history plays out against a background of exploding bombs, cascading concrete and flying human limbs, as Wilson tries to discern exactly how the ragtag Russians were able to score such a decisive win.
