Also included are transcribed excerpts from stenographic notebooks of Hitler's secretaries, as well as transcribed and re-constructed records of Hitler's daily military conferences, December 1942 to March 1945 (incomplete). The collection contains three essays in English by George Allen concerning the provenance of the records, as well as four manuscript versions, along with galley proofs and page proofs, of Felix Gilbert's book, Hitler Directs His War (1950), with a foreword by Allen.
