Photo: this is how Stalingrad looked a few days before the battle (July, 1942): And this is how it looked when it was over, 6 months later (February, 1943): One of the most iconic photos of Stalingrad – “Barmaley Fountain”. As Secretary of War Henry Stimson said at the time, “If you are going to try to go to war, or to prepare for war, in a capitalistic country, you have got to let business make money out of the process or business won’t work.” Businessmen worked, to be sure, and they made money—far more than anyone had dreamed of making during the Depression.
