Stalingrad: The Fateful Siege, 1942-1943 - Antony Beevor

I can see why this book made Beevor's career. It's a very readable, dramatic, and informative account of the battle of Stalingrad. Yet while I may be expecting more from his book than I should, it doesn't quite capture the epic-ness of the battle.
