BATTLES OF PURSUIT AT STALINGRAD

DISORDERLY AXIS RETREAT IN THE NORTH-WEST

15,000 MORE PRISONERS TAKEN

“HOUR OF RECKONING HAS STRUCK”

The German forces before Stalingrad are threatened with encirclement both near the city and in the whole region of the Don elbow. In the north-western sector they are retreating in full disorder. Some 15,000 more prisoners have been taken, bringing the total up to 51,000.

The Russians have secured rich booty, much of it in perfect condition, and are using many enemy weapons against the Axis forces.

Our Military Correspondent writes that if the Germans decide [missing word] hold their ground in the Stalingrad sack they must counter-attack in the Don bend, probably from the west, where they are in greatest peril.
