thus far has failed to crack The other is through Turkey or around Turkey and so into Syria V Upon Russias sturdy shoulders depends the defense of the Ukraine gateway But the blocking of the Hun drive through or about Tur key is largely up to Britain and the United States If the allies fail in the defense of either of these routes the fat will be in the The fuehrer will have gone a long long way
