Such is the total War that in these tense Days is being whetted into a terrible Swift sword. Soon that sword will slash away the diplomatic and political Fetters binding nazi strategy. As the Franco British blockade begins to Pinch and As Germany s supplies Are delayed from Russia by the finnish War and from the Balkans by Frozen Rivers then through the air the sword will strike. First it will attempt a total air blockade of Britain s islands fortress by striking at the Commerce that is the defenders life shipping and ports. That failing to starve Britain out then will come assault on Frances Field fortress the strongest in world history. Today s driving Effort is to prepare for both conflicts which must come in a matter of weeks barring some utterly unforeseen development. With , Wah what can be foreseen is that not until about easter will weather Over Britain favor Large scale consistent raiding and accurate bombing. About the same holds for ground operations in France. In the world War the bigger German attack on Verdun came in february and failed. The German weather Bureau picked March 21, 1918�?and aided by wonderful weather the germans broke the Western front. But that was a Rifle pit compared to the present fortifications. Those fortifications Are the French Maginot line and its extensions North behind the Luxem Burg belgian and South behind the Swiss italian frontiers. The Central portion alone forms the a Western front where the nazis have been raiding for information and to develop Quot aggressive spirit in troops soon to launch a great attack.

Dred mile strip Between Moselle and Rhine. Here including some old a. E. F. Ground the Maginot line is most vulnerable. But even a a terrible Swift sword Quot is poised to strike Frances Field fortress the Maginot line. First at Britain a shipping then at Here the terrain is roughly Acci dented. Its underground labyrinth marked by a 25-mile zone of new Field works and a Chain of cities Long fortified. The germans Call the Maginot line a Strong but Aib Arm is or Kat unknown indeed that Frontier would seem to be impregnable but for the greatest of All this War s great unknowns. As Marshall retain puts it a the fundamental military Laws Are in danger. The air plane May impose its own Spain and. Lately Poland seem to prove that with enough help from the air. Infantry can still break through despite modern automatic arms. Now if on the Western front it is proved that shells cannot penetrate underground fortresses can air bombs Seal them up by wrecking their protruding steel cupolas and re verse slope entrances and hinder their reinforcement by breaking communications rearward Only a trial can answer. And even then Eastern France offers no such tank country As did Poland. Behind the Maginot lines Quot weak links East of Nancy wait surrounding mountains and fortresses to trap the nazi mechanized forces. Of Mana Are flank frs a head Down butting attack is for the nazis not Only risky with morale a bit doubtful but contrary to their Bible. That Bible preaches the glories of cannae where 216 by Hannibal crushed the romans not by Hutting hut by squeezing from flank and rear. His carthaginians enveloped them As von Brauchitsch enveloped the poles. Against the Franco British the germans May first feint As Hannibal did. At the front door hut really break into the House by going around to the Back. The 1914 route is barred today by a Strong belgian army and fortification dutchmen and Dykes with traps beneath canal ice. Then comes the difficult Ste nay Entrance to France via the Rocky Meuse Argonne a. E. F. Battlefield. I even if the germans Stop Short on Holland s Northern coast in closer bombing Range of Britain they Are exposed to counter at tack not Only by British but by i French the worlds finest mane vering Force. The Strong hut rela Lively Jerry built rely How or j having won the break through it might thereupon lose the War like i the Kaiser at the Marne. Ditto if they tried Complete imitation of cannae by a thrust through the not impassable Northern Region of Switzerland. Still the Reichs Wehr Bible say a the first demand in War is de i Oilive action. In doubtful Situa Lions it is More advisable to proceed actively and retain the initiative than to await hostile Rule of by in it is a stupendous Gamble so the germans May not try the Back doors until their blows have the front door shivering on its hinges. Rule or ruin if Germany wins she can Divide up Scandinavia and the Balkans and perhaps the British and French empires too. With a Russia that will have become their full partners if Germany wins until that a Elf a becomes certainty. The world toils armies form factories hum.
