This week we look at the greatest battle of the Second World War and a titanic clash of egos, as both Stalin and Hitler refuse to allow retreat at Stalingrad and cause the deaths of millions.

We look at a Protestant rebellion against Mary I, as women took centre stage in Tudor politics and ask, was 'Bloody Mary' all that bloody?

Finally, to mark Holocaust Memorial Day and remember those who died, we consider what the Soviet soldiers who liberated Auschwitz found when they entered the very worst place imaginable.
