It is interesting to compare primary documents with official info. According to Krivosheev ("Soviet casualties and combat losses...") the North Caucasus Front lost (24.1 - 20.11.43):
99 492 men killed, 286 504 wounded, 89 756 sick, 3725 frostbites, 23 876 missing and captured, 5 936 other losses. Total 509 289 men.
From the sum of reports above casualties from 1 February to 10 November 1943 were:
94 719 killed, 272 237 wounded, 87 641 sick, 3036 frostbites, 22 069 missing and captured, 5 293 other. Total 484 995 men.
That is a reasonable match, the difference can be explained by a wider period in the first case.

The dates seem to have some consistency and then again show particular jumps. Its a 5 to 10 day report and finally a monthly reports basis.

Also: August to November is as I expected. The exchange rate on the Stalingrad front is more or less consistent with the Axis to Soviet losses on the entire front, though I doubt that we can deduce which of those losses were directly incurred inside the city.

Caucasus Front, 29 December 1941 - 10 January 1942 (Kerch-Feodosia landing):
https://pamyat-naroda.ru/documents/view/?id=130453195
5267 men killed (and drowned by all appearance), 7756 wounded, 271 sick, 1176 frostbites, 1478 missing and prisoners, 201 others. Total 16 122 casualties, including 4649 belonging to the Maritime Army at Sevastopol.
Worth to add that Krivosheev's number of casualties in the Kerch-Feodosia landing operation (more than 38 000 in the Caucasus Front) is out of any reasonable proportions and must be a result of mistake.

22 June - 31 July:
6105 killed, 12973 wounded, 311 sick, 34852 missing and captured, 1966 others. Total 57 207 men


The figures from 22 June - 31 July seems to be significantly lower than whats provided by Krivosheev for the Baltic Strategic Defensive Operation (22 June - 9 July).
Am I correct in assuming that this is simply due to the reports being incomplete - missing data from several subunits?

Anyway, thanks for the great job providing these documents, Art.

First of all, one should expect some huge gaps in reporting for this period. Then, this report doesn't cover the 8 Army which went to the North Front by that moment.
