The battle for that city had ended in disastrous defeat, shattering the myth of his military “Midas touch,” ending his chances of defeating the Red Army, permanently damaging relations with Italy, Rumania, Hungary, and other allied nations,1 and, of course, inflicting heavy losses on his eastern armies. More than 150,000 Axis soldiers, most of them German, had been killed or wounded in the citys approaches or ruins- 108,000 others stumbled into Soviet captivity, 91,000 in the battles last three days alone.

(Although Hitler never learned of their fate, only six thousand ever returned to Germany.)
