I have been finished read this book,overall about this story about the battle of Stalingrad between Nazi Germany and Soviet Union to control of the city of Stalingrad in southern Russia,now Volgograd.Which took place between 17th July 1943 during world war 2.From the story I feel the meaning or message of writer to tell the Nazi Germany are cruel because they try to dominate the Stalingrad from the Russia.From the beginning Nazi Germany try to make revolution in the world by domination all the nearest regions or country.Many strategy have been planned before and after battle of Stalingrad.The results of these operations are often cited as one of the turning points of World War II. The Battle of Stalingrad was the bloodiest battle in human history, with combined casualties estimated to be above 1.5 million. The battle was marked by brutality and disregard for military and civilian casualties by both sides. The German offensive to take Stalingrad, the battle inside the city, and the Soviet counter-offensive which eventually trapped and destroyed the 6th Army and other Axis forces around the city was the second large-scale German defeat of World War II, following the Second Battle of El Alamein. In Soviet and Russian historiography the struggle included ten campaigns, strategic and operational level operations.

From the story we see the effects after and before war,it was bad condition with economy down and the country destroy by anemy.If I am Russian,of course I will sacrifice my life to the country and did not think about the effects.I hope all the Malaysian students understand what the meaning independent and responsibility to the country.I would respect the adults and teenager in this story fightback the Nazi Germany without complete equipment and weapon but at the end they get back the Stalingrad from the germany.

The Boyhood of Raleigh

The Boyhood of Raleigh is a painting by John Everett Millais, which was exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1871. It came to epitomise the culture of heroic Imperialism in late Victorian Britain and in British popular culture up to the mid-twentieth century.

The painting depicts the wide-eyed young Sir Walter Raleigh and his brother sitting on the beach by the Devonshire coast. He is listening to a story of life on the seas, told by an experienced sailor who points out to the sea.

The painting was influenced by an essay written by James Anthony Froude on England's Forgotten Worthies, which described the lives of Elizabethan seafarers. It was also probably influenced by a recent biography of Raleigh.

The picture has appeared in recent explorations of postcolonialism, most notably Salman Rushdie’s novel Midnight's Children

Portuguese Square

Perhaps the right phrase to infer strong affinity to Portugal would be 'Mini Lisbon'. Located within the Portuguese Settlement, the square is the centre of Portuguese culture in Malacca and Malaysia.

Tranquerah Mosque

Prominent in its architectural grandeur, the mosque is unique and bears testimony to the fact that Islam had a rightful place in Malacca almost 600 years ago. The tomb of Sultan Hussain of Johor is in the compound of the mosque. He was the ruler who signed the cession of Singapore with Sir Stamford Raffles in 1819.

Maritime Museum

The Portuguese galleon, the Flor De La Mar, sank in the Straits of Malacca on its way to Portugal. Her hull was laden with invaluable treasures seized from Malacca. The galleon would have been erased from memory had it not been for the efforts to revive its symbolic significance to Malacca's heritage.

At the museum, visitors can get a closer look at Malacca from the famed Malay Sultanate of the 14th century to the Portuguese era, the Dutch era and the British era. There are exhibits of foreign ship models that had once called at the port of Malacca during the height of its maritime hegemony.

Tun Teja's Mausoleum

The daughter of Sri Amar Di Raja Pahang was convinced by Hang Tuah to marry Sultan Mahmud Shah. She died as a queen in Merlimau, about 24 km away from Malacca Town, while retreating with members of the Malacca royal family from the Portuguese attack in 1511.

Jasin Museum

The Jasin Musuem was established to uncover the facts and myths behind the establishment of Jasin, one of the significant settlements of Malacca's territorial expansion.

It depicts the lifestyle, the history, background and the political, cultural and economic development of Jasin. Using a British Commissioned building, the Jasin Museum houses an impressive collection of artefacts which includes paintings, pictures, costumes, agricultural implements and weapons from Melaka's rich and colourful past.

Included in its showcase is an exhibit of Sultan Mahmud Shah's infatuation for Puteri Gunung Ledang (Princess of Gunung Ledang).

Alor Gajah Museum

The Alor Gajah Museum houses exhibits to help visitors visualise the amazing stories behind the district of Alor Gajah.

The district was the site of the Naning War where from 1831 to 1832, a Naning warrior by the name of Dato' Dol Said fought against the British.

There are also exhibits on Malay, Chinese and Indian people who settled and built Malacca.
