This movie SUCKED. It would have been better if they would have just told the TURE story of the sniper duel instead of hollywooding it up and making it crap.

Problem is that even the "true" story is murky because they cannot positively identify the German sniper. And that's a strange thing when it comes to the German army.

holloywood wanted to make money rather than making it accurate. just look at Troy, how unaccurate from the actual sstroy is.

probably the truth is less beautiful, therefore attracting less customers, eg. the girls.

What I'm saying is the real story is BETTER than the BS story they madeup in Enemy at the Gates.

For most items of accuracy, "Enemy At the Gates" does a very poor job. It seems to try to tell a tale of vastly superior technology (Germany) vs primitive technology (the USSR). Germany has tanks and Russia doesn't. Germany is well equipped with machine guns and Russia fights with rifles not enough of them. Germany has aircraft and Russia doesn't. Etc, etc, etc. Now there were times when the Red Army was undersupplied, but that was also often true for the Germans too.

The biggest advantages that Germany had were better trained, more experienced soldiers and better commanders. Technologically, Russia was better in some areas and Germany was better in some. No overwhelming advantage to either side. And Russia always had more tanks at their disposal than Germany.

ya, very strange when i saw soldiers with half-capacities rifles cahrging at machiengun posts

when i saw it the first word that popped into my head was: sucide

in fact, the soviests rarely charged during those months of fighting, they fought defensively, and never retreated, they employed flank and other tactics of advance to recapture areas of the city

for example, mamalv hill changed hands 4 times a day.

the reality was that if charging was done, it was done with some form of tactic and staategy and soldiers are armed with submachineguns
