NotesImage 1: See LSE3207 for published cartoon. News: November 25: Eastern Front: The
Russian advance continued on the Don-Stalingrad front, particularly in the N.W. sector,
where the Red Army occupied the railway stations... In Stalingrad, the Russians cleared the
enemy from a number of strong points in the factory area, while further house blocks were
recaptured S. of the city. ... all four battlefields were, however, gradually merging into
one with the speed of the Russian advance, and the enemy's "living space" was gradually
being compressed from four directions: (a) south, along the outskirts of Stalingad, (b)
north, along the Volga from the Bubovka area, (c) N.W. from the Kalach-Kletskaya sector and
(d) S.W. in the Kotelnikovo region. The Luftwaffe lost many advanced airfields from which
it formerly operated against Stalingrad. ... [Keesing's Contemporay Archives p.5480] Image
