INTRODUCTION


Here's a new single player map for Call of Duty 2.
Entitled Stalingrad, this mission is in part inspired by the film Enemy at the Gates,
and features unique objectives and memorable scenes.
This map was not meant to recreate scenes from the movie, but was simply inspired by it.

NAME: Stalingrad

MAP: Single Player

CONTEXT:


The battle for Stalingrad took place between August 2nd 1942, and February 2nd 1943.

The capture of Stalingrad was important to Hitler for several reasons. It was a major
industrial city on the banks of the Volga River and its capture would secure the left
flank of the German armies. The fact that the city bore the name of Hitler’s nemesis,
Joseph Stalin, would make the city’s capture an ideological and propaganda coup.

However, ravaged by heavy bombardments and brutal battles, soviet snipers successfully
used the city's ruins to inflict heavy casualties on the Germans. Vasiliy Grigor´yevich
Zaytsev was credited with 242 kills during the battle.

The victory at Stalingrad marked the start of the liberation of the Soviet Union,
leading to eventual victory over Nazi Germany in 1945.

MISSION:


It is late autumn of 1942. You are a highly-praised soviet sniper. Crawling through
the city's underground, creeping through ruins, jumping from one building to another,
and engaging in close quarters combat as well as long-range shooting, you must make
your way across part of Stalingrad. Around every corner is either friend or foe.

Your objectives are to gather intelligence, eliminate high-ranking officers and enemy
snipers, and provide covering fire for your comrades as they pursue their own objectives
to recapture lost ground.

KNOWN BUGS


- due to a mysterious and unfixable leak, after much work and frustration, we had to
give up the extra compile for a fast compile, in order for the mission to work.
It is unfortunate. But hopefully the map won't suffer too much in the way of graphics.

- some lighting problems on certain brushes
