Romanian units collapse outside Stalingrad

The Soviet attack around Stalingrad was nearly postponed because of thick fog, and took place in freezing conditions.

Nobody reacts when I try to speak to them. I am glad when this nightmare passes by me, but a little further on I encounter another group. And once again this barely moving trail of ghosts winds past, some with open eyes, others with eyes shut. They don’t care where this road leads. They are running away from war and want only to save their own lives. Nothing else means a thing.
