The Stalingrad battle, which was the turning point of WW2, ended when
more than 300,000 German troops, weakened by the Russian winter,
surrendered unconditionally. They were marched off to Siberia. Most died
during the march. Only 30,000 returned in the early '50's after being
used as pawns in prisoner-of-war exchange bargains.

Or -- that is what THEY would have us believe.

The truth is that Stalingrad is located in the south of Russia and is
not known for its cold winters. It is more than 2,000 km south of
Moscow, only 200 km north of the Black Sea and further south than Paris.
While there are plenty of documentary pictures showing the devastatingly
cold conditions in Stalingrad, these could just as easily have been
taken around Leningrad - a northern city that was also held under a
lengthy siege. Any amateur could have forged the Stalingrad signs in
those pictures.

The turning point of the battle allegedly occurred when the Russians
transferred over a million well equipped Asian troops there from the
Japanese front. In fact, the Asian troops were illiterate and
under-equipped. The Russians were already battling the Japanese on
Sakhalin island and were deathly afraid of an imminent invasion through
Mongolia. And even if they could afford to transfer troops away from
their eastern front, they did not have the means to transport them on
short notice. It would have taken months and the Germans would have had
plenty of warning.

As far as the march of the prisoners goes, the numbers don't add up. If
150,000 bodies had to be buried on the way by the badly weakened
survivors, none of them would have made it to Siberia. It would have
taken too long. And anyway, where are the bodies? The only road leading
east from Stalingrad is not lined with mass graves.

There are no reliable eyewitness accounts. The Russians conveniently
claim that they evacuated the city before the battle. In fact, this is
something they never did. They didn't evacuate Leningrad or Moscow! What
few eyewitness accounts did exist were, naturally, from citizens of the
USSR and were vetted by the KGB. As such they are suspect.  The German
soldiers who did survive could only describe what happened in their
immediate surroundings and could not testify to the overall magnitude of
the operation. The official Allied documents were, of course, censored
and altered by the vested interests to suit THEIR purposes.

And what would these purposes be? Naturally, to undermine the German
effort in WW2 by falsely claiming that there was a major defeat. We
could just as easily presume that all that happened was a minor skirmish
with minimal losses. There are plenty of pictures out there showing
smiling German troops helping out their defeated Russian friends after
the battle. If you don't believe that, just watch some of the German
newreels of the day.

And what is the point of all this?

To demonstrate that there is not a single event in history that can not
be questioned or subjected to critical review.
