or ders in the hands of frontline com just what the troops will do during that final 12 hour period A single word will put those or ders into full effect The details arc classified but in general they will probably call off all offensive action by the Allies unless the Com munists attack or obviously pre pare to attack Some American commanders are worried however about what may happen if the interval be tween the Panmunjom agreement and the formal signing is long de as much as 24 hours or two days or so That would leave front units In the position of having the war end ed for ail intents and yet with no formal ceasefire to stop the killing or to guarantee against a lastminute Red as sault It would put many commanders in the awful position of sending out patrols at the risk of death or in jury to their risking an even more ruinous surprise attack by some erichard Communist storm troops grasping fanatically for one last victory Most frontline infan try platoons on the ra dios and
