OK first of all, there was no battle called "Stalin guard". It was called "Stalingrad". Stalingrad was the name of a Soviet city on the Volga.

Now let us define "best battle". I don't think there is such a thing as a "best battle" but if we are talking about the battle in terms of how epic it was and how much happened then yes, Stalingrad would probably stand at the top.

Stalingrad was the second largest battle in history with roughly 2 million deaths making it by far the bloodiest battle in history. The battle of Stalingrad was also probably the most important battle of WWII.

Why Stalingrad was important:

-Saved Stalingrad (the second most important city in the USSR)
-Saved the valuable oil-fields at the Caucuses (Grozny, Baku, Maykop, etc) which provided some 95% of Soviet oil.
-Saved the British Empire (stopped Germany from breaking into the middle-east which was lightly defended from where they could reach India and Egypt)
-Germany suffered a staggering 850,000 casualties
-This was the largest defeat for Germany
-The entire coarse of the war in Europe changed (in other words this was the most important turning point of the war)
-The Germans were in retreat on a scale never seen before shortly following the end of the Battle of Stalingrad
-Ensured that Turkey would not join the axis

By the end of the battle, Stalingrad could be compared to Hiroshima in terms of the scale of the destruction.

I understand and I thank my opponent for this debate. In short, Stalingrad was a famous battle during WWII. It was the turning point of the war in Europe.
