In addition to a wide variety of traditional sources, this volume provides two major categories of documentary materials hitherto unavailable to researchers. The first consists of extensive records from the combat journal of the German Sixth Army, which were only recently rediscovered and published. The second is a vast amount of newly released Soviet and Russian archival material including excerpts from the Red Army General Staff's daily operational summaries; a wide variety of Stavka (High Command), People's Commissariat of Defense (NKO) and Red Army General Staff orders and directives; and the daily records of the Soviet 62nd Army and its subordinate divisions and brigades for most of the time fighting was underway in Stalingrad proper. Because of the persistent controversy and mythology characterising this period, many of these documents are included verbatim in English translation in this companion volume, providing concrete evidence in support of the conclusions put forward in Volume Three . As such, the Companion contributes substantially to this final volume's unprecedented detail and fresh perspectives, interpretations and evaluations of the later stages of the Stalingrad campaign.
