Yet in the records of Army Group Center, there is little difference between their PoW counts before and after that date: https://wwii.germandocsinrussia.org/ru/ ... ect/zoom/6. https://wwii.germandocsinrussia.org/ru/ ... ect/zoom/6
(note that the second document, dated Oct 20, 1941, predates the ~180k PoW that AGC claimed in the following 6 weeks).
So I'm wondering:
- Was OKH's correction necessary only for AG's N&S?
- Did the Army Groups fail to correct the data issues noted by OKH?
If no to the last question, it implies a serious revision needed to the battle-specific claims cited in secondary sources...
