Reds Grab Initiative Near Moscow; Drive Forward With Attacks JOi: Al.h.V .'MOKKH I tilled Voreign Editor Armed forces ol the Soviet Union have seized the initia- tive on six sectors of the Mos- cow front and have driven forward in sharp counter at- tacks, Russian reports, claim today. One of the actions was described at, a counter of- fensive. Berlin reported ruptuie of Soviet delenscs on Perchop Isthmus leading to Crimea. Reich forces were also said to have forced their way closer to Rostov at the head of the Caucasus. Heavy handicaps on the .Moscow fiont where vigorous, Soviet- counter attacks w-eie in progress were admitted by the Germans. Berlin propaganda, taking a tact, warned that hard fight- ing "in storm and bad weather, m cold and snow" lies ahead and there was little specitic news irom the cential fighting front ex- cept reports, of "terrible" weather which nad bogged down the mcchanied Nazi wehmacht. The Nazi High Command claim- ed that the Russian defense lines on the four-and-a-half mile wide Pcrekop Isthmus which links Crimea to the mainland have been broken in eleven days' fighting m which Russian prisoners were seized and thirteen tanks and 309 guns captured or put out of action. 1'CRSUE ENEMY German troops, it was asserted, were pouring forward onto the Crimean Pemrsula in pursuit ol the "beaten enemy." London dis- patches admitted grave concern for the fate of. Ciimca but point- ed out that the Soviet nnval base of SebdStopol has strong defenses and should be able to hold out lengthily. Scbastopol is the main base of the Red Banner Black Sea fleet and the Russians were believed to have a torce of a battleship, five cruisers, twenty-seven destroyers, fifty motor torpedo boats and fifty submarines there. Tins naval force would be forced to withdraw to less well equipped bases on the Georgian coast if the Germans ovcrun Crimea. The Russian position in the Donets region remained critical. The Germans still were believed to be ten or fifteen miles from Rostov where Marsha! Semyon Timoshenko was striving desper- ately to mass strong reserve forces London believed his task was complicated by the losa of most of the heavy equipment be- longing to the southern Russian forces originally commanded by Marshal Semyon Budenny and by loss of communications and con- tact between units of Budcnny's forcea before Timoshenko took over command. MCiHTING CONTINUES At Kharkov, claimed as cap- tured by the Germans several days ago. Russian reports said that fighting still was in progress and London believed that a battle for the city had not yet been conclud- ed despite the. German claim. The weather appeared to be playing a. major part in the ap- parent Soviet turn for the better nround propa- Kandlsla the line that beaten but ihut "pcacr miwt be cn'orcwl in actdilioiwl Jwrd and heavy fifht- Northern France Airports Raided four-motored British bombing planes fought a northerly gale during the night to penetrate far into Geiman terri- tory, attacking wide areas over south and southwest Germany, the Air Ministry said in a communique today.
