Johnson Nea military writer Washington a the key to final Victory in tills War. And to world relationships afterwards May be America s Nowr super bomber of which already Are rehearsing blows such As never have been struck before. These huge planes can travel such distances with such loads that global strategy and even statesmanship Are Likely to depend on who possesses tile most and Best of them. Airmen believe that the heavy bomber simply will not p a Mit any nation to return to isolationism after this War. Ii will shrink this Globe to tile size of a baseball. Already say Hie airmen these coming events cast their shadows before. The allies Are winning the War through three factors russian manpower British american sea Power and american Brit ish russian air Power. In Hie phase now approaching the last will be decisive. Already air pow r Lias enabled us to defend our coasts and Australia against Japan then to penetrate Lier outposts while weakening German Industry and morale crushing Italy and menacing the Balkans. Loads already released we have proven the terrific Power of Daylight bombing with an incredibly accurate bomb sight and by the worlds Best heavy bombers. The fortresses and liberators arc being so equipped for extra Winter loads that though they May Fly less they will bomb More. They Wall be escorted unprecedented distances by Long Range fighters. And their bases Are edging Ever closer to Germany russian air but soon by it dwarfed As Are those of til Force too these to medium giants will size. They med great new new Era Iii must reckon slide May even become As Gen no Arnold has said a a til last of the a Small bombers a right now preparations Are being made for an event to occur probably Early in 1944 which All airmen await in awed sushi use the first attack of the b-29. Attack not raid is the word for the b-29 is our new sup 1-bomber, unequalled in the world. It is More heavily armoured and armed than any Oiler plane. It can carry a heavier Load higher and Laster and much Lai t her. It can on official word a carry half a Carload of bombs across Tho at lactic and return without i so we May launch this Thunder i Bolt from Newfoundland against j Berlin or from Midway. Hawaii. The a. Titans or Alaska against i Tokio and Boomerang like it will i return to be launched again. It j will need special runways Supply and maintenance facilities but those can be provided even Whit i the inevitable a bugs Quot Are being worked out of a mechanism so i vast. J trend nou Rei it airmen believe the bombers will bring a global strategy which with wars that come winging from continent to continent without warning. For any Power with enough super bombers and basis and enough Gas. Oil and Industry to sustain them can attack virtually any other Power with a suddenness and devastation to make an old style a raid resemble a squabbling firecracker. Global strut by. Which formerly pivoted upon sea Power soon will Pivot primarily upon air Power. Increasingly naval warfare Aims at seizing air Fields. Hie army says officially Quot the gaining of air superiority is the first requirement for Success in any major land that shows til trend but not the eventuality. Presently one nation May crush another through the air entirely without moving a ship by sea or a Soldier by land. Or it May invade by air As Clr Many did Iii Crete and we did in new Guinea. Planes the size of the b-29 adj make Iceland the azores Natal and Dakar even More pot it tally dangerous to us than Ever. It a with the b-29 in mind that our airmen and even our president warned of this and were hooted by isolationists. But alter the b-29. There will come other bombers that will skip Iceland and the rest As an express skips local stops. Then Vladivostok and Tokio May be dangerous to us As in a few weeks Newfoundland will be to ii rain or Alaska to Tokio.
