comment What made Stalingrad a turning point in the second world war?
@PieterGeerkens: If you make that argument, then even Midway would be a high water mark, not a decisive battle. The four carriers the Japanese lost there pale in comparison to the fact that the U.S. built the equivalent of the Japanese fleet every 18 months. But I was following the "conventional" wisdom that Stalingrad was one of three turning point (in your-speak) "high-water mark" battles. I edited my answer to make this point.
