RECTIFICATION OF THE FRONT ACCORDING TO PLAN - GERMAN WAR MATERIAL ON THE ROAD WEST OF KLIN
[Picture shows German guns and transport abandoned on the side of a road in Russia, published in The Times of 2nd January 1942]
O.K.W. communiqué from the Führer's G.H.Q. on 17 December 1941:
"In the course of the transition from attack operations to the positional warfare of the winter months the necessary rectifications and shortenings of the front are at present being carried out according to plan."

On December 11th, Hitler announced what he claimed to be the full casualty figures for the Russian campaign: From June 22nd to December 1st - so he says - the German army lost 162,000 killed, 572,000 wounded, 33,000 missing.
Hitler states, therefore, that of the 5,000,000 German soldiers in Russia only 572,000 have been wounded. If Hitler is right, then, out of every 9 soldiers on the Eastern Front, 8 would be unscathed;
that only 162,000 Germans have been killed on the Eastern Front. There are in the Third Reich - at a conservative estimate - 16,000,000 families. If Hitler is right, then, 99 German families out of a hundred would not be in mourning.
Everyone can check this for himself.
Hitler states, that he has announced the total number of dead up to December 1st. Observe that between June 22nd and December 1st are exactly 162 days. Is it a coincidence that, according to Hitler's figures 162,000 soldiers were killed in these 162 days? Or did Hitler decide to reckon a thousand deaths a day and present this mathematical fake to the German people instead of the true facts?
Everyone should think that over.
Hitler states, that Germany is fighting for European civilisation. Every civilised State publishes casualty lists giving the names of all killed, wounded, and missing. The German Government did so in the last war. Why doesn't Hitler?
