The'French' and British confidently expect to win .the war but they believe victory may be precipitated by (he crack iip of the Oerman home front and not necessarily by an overwhelming victory in the field. Without claiming inside information of allied plans, it, seems lhat tire tactics and strategy of the French nnd British at this time may he defined ns pointed toward a war which will surely if slowly force Germany to capitulation. Naturally later developments might alter these fundamentals and also (his definition of French-' British strategy does not mean lhat the ullies intend lo pull their punches in military combat. T am convinced that Ihe British, for instance, are planning and fully intend to send millions «f men to (lie continent to fight. • That theory would account for the cautious way in which the war has proceeded so far on thc western front. Likewise the theory is borne out by (he combats on the diplomatic front, namely thc allied insistence thai the war is against. Hitlerism and Nazi bn- rrnucrncy and nol against the German masses.
