Make sure that when you are looking at lists of documents that you click the "Text Version Index" link in the upper left corner also. A lot of documents may not have the original available, but text versions are. This is PARTICULARLY true in the Army Air Forces Index.

In the Soviet Index there is a copy of an interview with Stalin. He gives his appraisal of the war with Germany and assesses Soviet tanks and aircraft. Pretty interesting read.
