TllUKSDAY, AUGUST 17, 1944 SINGLE COPIES FIVE CENTS" ' AMEMCAN 'BUTr ROLLS TOWARD PARIS TODAY'S WAR ANALYSIS Hitler Hopes For Another 1914 Miracle By ED KORHV United Tress Staff Writer Eussla'e great summer offensive Jins reached Its decisive stage. Though overshadowed by the news from France, some of tlie most decisive battles of the war are raging on the eastern front. The Germans apparently liave decided to make it a do-or-dtc fight, an.vthing to stop the Hcd army from (.pilling on the "holy soil" of Germany. For the time being, they are succeeding. The Soviet advance has been stemmed, halted by German attacks east of Warsaw and along ihe approaches to East Prussia. Significantly, Moscow doesn't refer to .these German thrusts with the 'customary description "counter-attacks." It flatly calls them "Attacks." And the Russians even jplBtySJ far as to admit penetrations f\ in some of the sectors of the vast - battle-front. However, the aggressive action of the German armies still Isn't in the nature of a general counter-offensive, and it's extremely doubtful that the Germans can ever hope to mount n large drive against the victory-hungry Soviet troops. Enemy [jacks Strength With their Atlantic and Mediterranean walls . gone, with . their armies in western Europe being pushed back relentlessly, with their manpower barrel all but drained, the Germans just can't muster enough strength to put on a sustained drive. Tills has been proved often on the pastern front. Each time the Russians have vaulted across a large river, German resistance has stiffened. After the Russian crossing of the Donets 'in 1943, the Germans came back temporarily to recapture Kharkov. After the Red army stormed beyond the Dnepr,>the Ger- 'mnris retook Zhitomir. When Soviet troops -crocked the Bug: j^cr - Hiic; the Nazis again stemmed trielr advance. • ,. : But each time the Germans tried to Hold the Initiative, the Red War jnai:hine lurched forward, resuming •f/ils westward advance' with a new 'Theari n steam. ' . • ' . " In fact, all these German counter-thrusts were merely holding actions. The Nazis had lots of room to lall back, all they wanted was time, time enough to reform their lines' and set up a now defense system, one which they hoped to use us a springboard for ii counteroffensive. '• But today it's a different story. Now the Germans are lighting on tht'ir last lilies, the border of East Prussia and the Vistula river. For Hitler It's now or never. If the VIs- . tula and the Prussian border become two more milestones In the Russian advance, his .next line of defense Is the Oder, Berlin's own river. Hope For Knockout -The Germans, therefore, are fighting desperately, hoping against hope for a repetition of the miracle of 1914, when Russia was nil but knocked out of World War I in a single battle, the battle of Tannenberg." .Two great armies of the Czar had /.crashed across the East Prussian : f ran tier from the east and south. The Cairlst commanders sent their columns plunging into the German province with reckless speed. Under LudendorlT, their hero of the last war, the Germans fell back, drawing the Russians deeper and deeper Into Prussia, making them extend their slim spearheads still further. Since he was outnumbered, Lti- dendorff decided to take on each of the Russian armies separately. He pulled out most of his troops facing the Czarisl army striking from the east and shifted them to southern Prussia to win superiority on that front. When the Russians in the south had been sucked Inlo Prussia deep enough to spring his trap, Luden- dorff sent two powerful forces against the flanks of the Russian spearhead and soon enveloped the entire enemy army. Some 125,000 prisoners alone were taken In the battle of Tanncnberg. And although the Russian force coming In from the cast managed to escape, the defeat just about eliminated Russia from the war. Now the ghost of Ludendorff has i. -returned to haunt Htller. He Is fSsquandering his troops In a vain "effort to repeat that miracle of 1914. But the Russians have advanced cautiously toward Prussia, making their wedges thick, keeping their flanks well-protected and in effect encorcllng the big province first before actually entering It. The ghost of Ludendorff Is haunt- Irig them too.
