Christmas at Stalingrad (Pocket Penguin 70's #16) - Antony Beevor This was a gift from my fiance which I received, catalogued and shelved for reading at another time. The time came when I needed a book to tide me over for a day between other longer books. It was an enjoyable excerpt. I am sure I would slog through the whole book, but the excerpt was just what I needed and gave an interesting perspective on the "Russian Front."
