Their army numbers Only i 10,870, not including reserves the War today German stroke in North mainly defensive gain and now it depends on the outcome of reported naval Battle in North sea by Dewitt Mackenzie just by Way of showing the Orange Light of Cathion one is impelled to say that until the smoke of the naval engagement off the norwegian coast lifts to give us details of what is now a mystery Battie we shall do Well to sit tight and not Rock our n boat w Ith excited speculation att we know of a certainty is that Allied and German naval and in her a resisted seizure of Denmark Germany once More gave the world a demonstration of the Oil Mooth functioning if her Blitzkrieg machine. Under naval Convoy including big pocket battleships like those above Doop transports swept onto Denmark a Vest coast. From the carriers poured. Battalion after battalion of armed and fully Seq tapped Shock troops. They were ferried ashore with Quick efficiency Learned through Oft repeated Landing Maneu vers like that pictured above where soldiers in training Are seen using portable Neu Matin rafts. Once ashore the invader. Quickly occupied strategic Points including the capital Copenhagen the scene above taken during the seizure of Prague was repeated a practice move in a familiar game. Troops were trucked into town while overhead bombers dropped leaflets a a explaining the invasion. Not forgotten a Bias the. A Aback As the transports were brought up from their German bases to Denmark their naval Convoy closed in and Laid Down a barrage of mines behind them providing a dangerous Barrier to any attempt of an enemy to follow and frustrate the Landing of the army of occupation. Nil units Are or have been n conflict on an angry sea. It would appear that for the first time in history warships have been supported by squadrons of bombing a d fighting planes. Of we mild nay that the entire British grand Fleet and the whole Cormel Navy were engaged on one role hat conflict then we should he Able to suggest that disaster might Lurk in the storm Clouds to one Side or the Othet. It Ati of to it hip Quot a it is improbable however that forces of such magnitude have been involved. This naval engagement i no i going to end the War. What we in see in that upon the outcome of thi Bat t he or Herb of Battle depends to Large degree whether the allies Wilt by Able to give Norway immediate assistant c in the w a of Landing expeditionary troop. And it must or added that even of the Allied naval contingents arc a completely successful the Anglo French brotherhood face a formidable task in that the germans i already Are in occupation of nor Way in considerable numbers la would be a heroic Jot for a Landing Forte to fight it Way ashore in the a of such opposition. Germany a coup in occupying Norway and Denmark is Likely to j have a far reaching moral effect. And it might even mean another change in Europe kaleidoscopic map hut from the present in i 11 f tary standpoint there actually Hasni to been much shifting of weight make chg gain of we assume for the Sake of argument that the nails will be Able to maintain their positions for the time being and that in a reasonable Assumption. Then they hate made a Coli to durable gain at the sex pen a a of the English Aud French. There is however certainly nothing catastrophic about the affair or even approaching i or decisive excepting from the standpoints of unhappy Norway end Denmark. Thai is to say the relative status of the belligerents remains about the same. This statement naturally is subject to qualifications if the naval Battles product a tremendous upset. Of course if we want to look i Tho end of the War and create the hypothetical situation of a victorious Germany annexing the do countries which to has just occupied we have an entirely different picture a nazi Dom swollen by the addition of Norway and Denmark and maybe a lot More would represent a tremendous new Force in world affairs. However Herr Hitler Hasni to won the War and moreover he has doctored that in has no Litten j lion of annexing his two neigh bore.
