Snows May bog ground troops Lait they will invigorate Allied airmen to a new pitch of activity British and american plane heels now Are in their let position of the War to lilt the germans with All they be got i isl of All the Allied ail forces now Are stronger than even before As an example american w a r planes in All Heaters have been dropping 4400 tons of la mibs a Day for the past few months in their Hist year of War they averaged Only 28 tons a Day. Last month British and american planes he ailed a record 113,400 tons of explosives on i h e Reich la y contrast Germany dropped Only 40.0 0 tons on Britain in All the Hill year of 1940 two years ago Winter and fall raids were carried out by no More than Loo planes yesterday the eighth a Force alone sent 2.000 Over in Many Dur air i esses shrink second Allied plane losses have sunk to a new Low in october of 1943 British based airmen dropped Only 44 tons of explosives for every plane lost in october of 1944 the eighth air Force dropped 240 tons fur every loss. Third by winning the Battle of the Atlantic the allies have secured their trans Ocean Supply line. Allied planes drink vast quantities of gasoline All of which must be shipped into England As an example. American planes in All Heaters dropped one million tons of bombs from Pearl Harbor to october 2. But they took two million Gallons of fuel to do it fourth the allies have so perfected instrument bombing that Winter weather no longer is an important. Factor. Some of today a greatest. Tonnages Are dropped through a thick roof of Clouds. Fifth the allies paved the Way for a great air Victory by a great ground Victory. They have shoved their air front right to Germany s door step. However weeks May elapse before the allies can ready numbers of bomber Fields near or beyond the German Frontier. Transport is at a Premium now. And the average All weather Ai drome requires 2000 tons of steel matting but once those Fields Are established they will pay Rich dividends. For one thing they will shrink the distance Allied airmen must Fly to a German target. This in turn will enable airmen to Cut their gasoline Load and boost their bomb Load. Further Allied planes no longer will have to run the Gauntlet of interceptors based in the Low countries. All air Opo Sutlon will come Over the Reich itself. For three years Germany a chief system for detecting approaching raiders was Strung along the French belgian and dutch coasts. Now Germany a Forward radar stations must in located inside the Reich. One British expert estimates that this has Cut the enemy s warning period from 15 to five minutes. On top of that target Europe now has shrunk to its bulls Eye Germany itself. No longer must Allied planes Hammer the Balkans France and the Low countries no longer must they scatter their shot across a great continent. Now they can focus their full fire on the Reich. Conversely Germany a strength has waned As Allied strength has grown. In june. Prime minister Churchill said the allies had 11,000 planes available for the Battle of Germany. At about the same time a swedish expert estimated that the nazis had no More than 1500 first line planes. Of course the germans have tried to offset this disadvantage by bringing in Jet propelled aircraft but they have one fatal weakness. They can stay in the air no More than one hour and consequently Are of no use in combating raids far from their bases. Thus Germany is in for a bad Winter. A Winter when cold blasts will rip through damaged houses.
