Major Eliot Explains the Strategy Germans Scatter Armies; Poland to Try toSplit Them Flank-Enveloping Move- movements Now Become Separate Campaigns STILL NO~blSASTER Major Eliot Thinks Decisive Action In Poland Still to Come By GtORGK FIELDING ELLIOT NEA Sen-ice Staff Writer on military Affairs LONDON—You can depend on the German military mind never to be too original. German actical theory is still dc- minatcd by the ideas of Von Schlicf- i'cn, who considered the victory of Hannibal over the Romans at Cannae in 216 B. C. ;i model for all tactics. Jn other words, the object of the German military always is to develop the enemy flank—preferably both flanks. In the present Polish campaign we see his traditional stragety at work once mire. It is illustrated in the enveloping of the Polish corridor from east, and west, Upper Silesia from west and south, and in the current efforts to surround central Polish pisitions by concentric attiwks from Eas Prussia, from the corridor and from Silesia, via Lodz. However, present. German dispositions in Poland have passed beyond the stage where they may be described as (rue envelopment, in which the enveloping force rarely loses touch with its own main body or holding force. Separate Pelaclmients Exposed To Attack These have become vast turning movements, in. which there arc widely separated forces moving toward a common objective. The danger there is that, as against, a well organized central force, various detachments are exposed to counter attack, and destruction. I was told again and again in Warsaw that the Poles expected considerable German advances in the early days of the war, and that, the Polish objective was to keep their army intact and then to counter attack once the Germans were deep into the country, its armies widely separated. Tliis very situation seems to have arrived and Polish counter attacks can be expected, provided there still arc troops available for that purpose, which seems quite certain. Polish resistance to the German advance has not so far been of last ditch charactci^ and quite rightly so, because the Poles cannot afford to lose any of their precious first line divisions in early stages of the war. German reports of prisoners and guns taken would indicate capture only of Polish rear guard detachments and a scattering of local reserve formations. Will Speed of Advance flrcak Polish Morale? I1 would seem that the Polish army lia.s escaped any serious disaster and is now concedtrating in and south of Warsaw. Meanwhile, Iho alvance of tin- northern and southern arms of the German pnicers appears checked on both sides. The Nazis undoubtedly rcali/.e the dangers of their present tactics, but probably count on the speed of their advance to disorganize Polish armies and break Polish morale. Likewise, they presumably figgurc Hint their air force attacks can nullify the Polish army's mobility, an essential counter attacking. It is quite clear that, the Germans have, for (ho mom- en I at least, established air superiority on the northern front, but air superiority is never a permanent or assured thing because of (he vcy natue of thai military arm. But Ih fact remains, despite all this, thai the Poles have lost a great deal of territory and their conlinou.s re- lircnicn! certainly is not helping morale. Unless they can score, not only some striking success, but also be' given strong evidence of allied support, they may be in .serious trouble. However, I suggsct, that both these things may yet happen, and that the Polish situation, though not at the moment very favorable, is a long way from being hapless. Then, too, the Germans may be gelling a little too cocky, and,' as they pu-ss on and spread out more thinly, their transportation difficulties begin. A Thought Verily, verily, I say unto you, if a man keep my saying, he shall never see death.—Juhs 8:51.
