SEPTEMBER 12, 19S9 * nsisrs IS GH 18 MES 1 How Germany Uses Flfink Attack (ATtK.y cotmmR NEWS Taclicai Expert Believes Poles May Yet Oiit- maneuver Invaders By GEORGE FIELDING ELIOT HEA Service Stiff Writer cm Military Affairs LONDON, Sept. Ilj-Yoii cnn depend on the German military mind never to l>o too original. German laclte) theory is still dominated by the ideas ot Von Schtieffen, who considered Hie victory ot Hannibal over ihe Romans at Cannae In 210 B. c. a model for all tactics. In oilier words, the object of the German military always is to envelop the enemy Hank . "Preferably, both flanks. Tn the present, Polish campaign we see this traditional strategy at work, once more. It is illustrated in the enve!opln<* of the Polish corridor from eai« and west., Upper Silesia fr:m west and south, and in the current efforts to surround central Polish positions by concentric attacks from East Prussia, iron the corridor and from Silesto, via Lodz. However, present German rtlspo Billons in Poland have passed be yond the stage where they may )j described as true envelopment, h which the enveloping f:rce rarel loses touch with its own main bod or holding force. SEPARATE DETACHMENTS EXPOSED TO ATTACK These have become vnsl turnin movements, in .which there nr widely separated forces moving to ward a common objective. 'Hie dan ger there is that, ns against a \vcl organized central force, various de tachments are exp:sed to comite attack and destruction. . I was told again and again ii Warsaw that the Poles expecte considerable German advances ii the early days of the war, ant that the Polish objective was keep their army intact and thci to c:vmter attack once the Gcr mans were deep into the count)'} its armies widely separated. This very situation seems to havi arrived and Polish counter attack can be expected, provided there sill are trocps available for that purpose, which seems quite certain. Palish resistance to the German advance has not so far been of las ditcli character; and quite right!} so, because the Pries cannot afford to lose any of their precious firs line divisions in early stages otthe War. ;<•'•• 4 '';'•:"' —:-.-.., Germaiiireports of prisoners and guns taken would indicate'captun only of the Polish rear guard de tachments and n scattering ot loca reserve forma liens, WILL' SPEED OF ADVANCE BREAK POLISH MORALE? It-would seem that the Polisl army lias escaped any serious disaster and is now concentrating in and south of Warsaw. Meanwhile the advance of the northern nnc. southern arms of the German pincers appears checked on both sides 'The Nazis undoubtedly, realize the dangers . of . their present tactics but probably count en the spew of .their advance to disorganize Polish armies and break Polish morale Likewise, they presumably figure that their nlr force attacks can nullify the P; army's mobility an essential to counter attacking It is quite clear thai the Germans have, tor the moment at least, established »ir superiority on the northern front, but air superiority Is never a permanent cr assured thing because of the very nature of that military arm. But the fact remains, despite alt this, that the Poles have lost a great deal of territory and their continuous retirement 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 suggest that both these things may yet happen, and that the Polish situation, though not at the moment very favorable, is a 'kng way from being hopeless. Then, too. the Germans may be getting a little too cocky, and, as they press on and spread out more thinly, their transportation difficulties begin.

Bui this harvest money must be "stretched out" to cover the expenses of the entire year. A par! may lie used to square up debts contracted in the production of Die crops. Some is spent on purchases that had been planned lonj? before the crops were sold. Then, too, it's important to- keep a reserve for the winter months nnd (he first sprint,' operations of next year.
