Beevor, A. (1999). Stalingrad. Penguin.

Chuikov, V. I. (1963). The Beginning of the Road: The story for the Battle for Stalingrad. Macgibbon and Kee.

Chuikov was, of course, the Russian commander in Stalingrad. A great resource. Seems to be the main reference for other authors. Tows the party line a little too much, but what can you expect from a Marshal of the Soviet Union.

Clark, A. (1965). Barbarossa. Cassell.

Doerr, H. (1955). Der Feldzug nach Stalingrad. Darmstadt.

Major-General Hans Doerr was a German officer at Stalingrad. His book, translated as Campaign in Stalingrad, is cited by Chuikov (1963).

Erickson, J. (1993). The Road to Stalingrad: Stalin’s war with Germany: Volume One. London: Weidenfeld.

Very good. Very detailed. And provides a much better sequence of events than other sources.

Fire & Fury

In particular Fire & Fury: Another day in the Tractor Factory and Fire & Fury: Historicon 2004. The later includes snaps of a Stalingrad scenario.
