THE TIMES FRIDAY NOVEMBER 27 1942

THE RETREAT FROM STALINGRAD

ANOTHERE 12,000 PRISONERS TAKEN

RUSSIAN GRIP ON VITAL RAILWAYS

AXIS REPORTS OF NEW SOVIET OFFENSIVE AT KALININ

In a special Soviet announcement last night it was stated that during the day the Russians had taken 12,000 more prisoners, bringing the total since November 19 to 63,000.

The Germans are straining every nerve to prevent the retreat of their forces before Stalingrad from developing into a rout and their rearguards are fighting stubbornly.

The German High Command announced yesterday that the Russians had begun the “expected attack” on a broad front south of Kalinin and south-east and west of Toropets, but claimed that the attacks had broken down.
