Both the Eastern and Western Walls of hitlers Homeland Are being shoved Back toward each Oiler slowly at first because both Walls Are moated but in the Days and weeks immediately ahead the momentum will increase under the mounting pressure cracks then Gaivs will appear in both Walls then like a great City whose masonry is being crumbled by bombing troth Walls will Sag eave in.

The German nation May not founder exactly according to tin picture that seems to tie shaping up now. There Are several indefinable elements which might change the outline slightly if tile German people ural tin army should collapse altogether then the War would last Only Long enough for Allied troops to occupy their appointed areas and for the i Allied High command to announce a cessation of organized resistance. Tills is no Means impossible if some German military Leader humid sue for peace the end of the War would tie Only so far away As it takes for the allies to Lay Down the conditions of unconditional surrender but till consideration immediately brings up the question who ran so Peak tor Germany Hitler the Only recognized Lead or of Germany now already has made it.

Might be Able to surrender on the Western front but who would Tot Low his orders Iii the East or in Italy at the moment there appears to be no German Leader military or otherwise who could guarantee to the allies that lits order for the German army to Lay Down its arms. Would be followed on All fronts. Thus it appears that unless tin German people themselves the average civilians and the soldiers in the rank decide spontaneously in one mass movement and without orders that they will fight no More unless they do that then it appears that the War will run its final course Hitler wont surrender Hitler still is the cohesive Force in Germany. If he disappeared prom the scene another Leader might Art e capable of delivering Germany As a whole. Or hts dts appearance might provoke that spontaneous disintegration of the will to Light among Hie people but while he remains there is no Chance at All of a formal surrender.

The Elbe River is the next Frontier line for the Western allies. And the Elbe also is the next Frontier for the russians. If the germans elect to tight to the end they can probably hold Berlin indefinitely. But its unlikely that they can prevent the red army from smashing in Hank assaults on both sides of the capital and driving to the Elbe. When the Western allies meet the Eastern allies at the Elbe they will be standing on the ashes of Germany.
