Doctor at Stalingrad
Limited 1,000 copy edition reprint of an extremely scarce memoir only previously published in England, and published by Aberdeen Bookstore. This is a story of Stalingrad seldom talked about. Dibold relates his experiences in Stalingrad during the battle, and the utter helplessness he felt as the casualties were so high and in conditions so appalling with little or no medical supplies. Then after capture Dibold remained in Stalingrad and in conditions that are beyond comprehension. Part of the time he was in the huge underground Timoshenko bunker the Russians built. Often working in complete darkness in narrow corridors crammed full of injured soldiers, Dibold again was in a position of being able to offer little in comfort. The lice were atrocious, Dibold talks of scooping them from injured abdomen, the stench unfathomable, and the black tarry walls dripping with stench from the condensation of steam coming from wounds. Thypus was rampant. Even after the last shot was fired in Stalingrad, things were far from over for Dibold. He words aren’t minced, and he tells of the finest and darkest of human behavior during these times, only 1000 copies printed, bound in full cloth using an exact copy of original dust jacket published originally in 1958!
