General Paulus asks for ‘Freedom of action’

The Soviets kept the pressure up on the Stalingrad pocket where the street fighting continued.

I still believe, however, that the army can hold out for a time. On the other hand – even if anything like a corridor is cut through to me – it is still not possible to tell whether the daily increasing weakness of the army, combined with the lack of accommodation and wood for constructional and heating purposes, will allow the area around Stalingrad to be held for any length of time.
