It would secure the collimation of Iron Ore supplies from Sweden an absolute necessity for the Reich. It would he a heavy blow to the efficiency of the Allied blockade. It would secure Large food supplies from Scandinavia and. By the same Token deprive England of them.

It would tighten the strangling of feet of the blockade immeasurably.

In any event he perhaps was counting some of his Chicks before they Are hatched for the allies most certainly must oust the germans from Norway in order to Cash in on their naval Triumph. Landing Churchill also said that the allies will take what they want on the norwegian coast As soon As the British Fleet has reached its primary goal that is. Destruction of German sea Power. They Haven to waited to reach that goal however before striking against the invading troops. Various Landing operations Are reported As boiling up. I Speed is essential in the Landing operations. If the germans j succeed in entrenching themselves it will he a herculean task to eject them. The immediate Allied concern therefore is to prevent \ nazi reinforcements from reach ing Norway and at the same time get expeditionary forces ashore at strategic ports. Trondheim is one of these Strong Points and it is reported i that the allies already Are operating against this port which i also is a Railroad terminal. The germans this morning claimed to have repulsed a Bertish attack with planes and naval vessels Here.
