Corner Brook vol. 45, no. 9corner Brook Newfoundland saturday May 27, 1944 Price five cents Mammoth Over All Allied War strategy effective in All zones by h. L. Jones Canadian press staff writer the first move in the final plans of the United nations to destroy the German army appears to have been successful in that the Allied 5th army and the British 8th army have pulverized the nazis Gustav line in Italy and Are Well on their Way to doing the same thing to the enemy is next line of defence the Hitler line. And last week end advanced Allied Headquarters in Italy reported that with the Hitler line defences breached the weakened German forces had prepared and occupied a new switch line. This runs from Piedimonte through Pontecorvo and Fondi to the tyrrhenian sea at four Miles West of Cassino battered nazi bastion taken by the 8th army last week to Pontecorvo. But from there South it ran through the Aurnel Mountain Range to hit the coast near Forami. The fall of Forami before the advancing Allied troops last week a lot to put a crimp in the Hitler line defences in hat area hence the hurried need for the switch line. The route of the new defence position is roughly Southwest of Pontecorvo. Fondi is 15 Miles Northwest of Saeta Point and Terracina is 18 Miles Westward along the coast from Gaeta which Tell late last week to advancing 5th army forces. Meanwhile the germans appear to have neutralized the Anzio beachhead but Allied troops there Are reported As eagerly awaiting the word to strike at the nazi rear. Partisans worry nazis and another major worry for the now harassed germans is the situation i Yugoslavia where the partisan Campaign has forced the enemy to make a full scale Effort to crush marshal Titos hard fighting patriots who Are threatening the railway linking Austria with Bulgaria and Rumania. Thus the German High command finds itself forced to consider the Wisdom of reinforcing its 20 divisions in Italy at a time when the nazis Are facing invasion from the West and a new russian drive from the East. The allies have made their first move on the giant War Checkerboard. On the Wisdom of the nazis next move May depend their Fate in the Mediterranean and perhaps other theatres for it is now increasingly Clear that the impending invasion from Britain the Eastern front and the campaigns in Yugoslavia and Italy Are intimately connected in the Allied strategy. But in any event the next blow whether it be on occupied eur ropes West coast or another drive by the russian steamroller or a combination of both will be just another major step in a Mammoth Over All Allied War strategy plan which opened with the latest italian offensive. Disclosure that Canadian infantry and tanks were in the thick of the new drive with the 8th army was made last week.

The movement a reinforcing operation which completely fooled the japanese was carried out without loss in men or aircraft. Long after the divisions units were engaged around ukr us in the Indian Manipur state the japanese continued to place the division on the a akan front in South Burma. Men mules Mountain guns medical equipment and jeeps with trailers of ammunition were piled into the planes. In 36 hours thousands of men were fighting on a front which would have required weeks to reach by ground movement. Both British and american personnel were involved in the Transfer of the division. And while discussing the War with Japan it might be Well to report that an authoritative Allied bulletin has declared that the japanese Zero fighter plane is More manoeuvrable than the British spitfire or the american Mustang but added that in every other particular the enemy air Force has failed in Burma. However it was stated that the japanese advantage of being Able to out turn Allied fighters was effected at the Cost of other factors such As giving the Allied planes Superior Speed climbing and diving ability and greater armament fire Power and strength All of which permitted tactical superiority.
