For years, Nazi propagandists comforter rriptf Germans with the though! that the war was still far.from the Retch frontiers. That Germany was encrusted wllh a protective barrier of space. But Ihe Germans are running shorl on space Just as Ihey're running .short on soldiers. They've losl at least 25,000 square miles in Itnly, some 30,000 in France, over 100,000 In the cast. Now Ihey're losing Romania's 74,000 square miles. Soon, they may lose Bulgaria's 39.000 and Finland's 132,000. Eventually, they'll be fighting for their last territorial hold- Ing, Germany's 180,000 square miles. On top of that, the Germans have lost their most powerful protective barriers. The English Channel has been spanned, the Atlantic wall cracked, the Alps by-passed, the Vistula crossed, the Carpathians flanked. The Hitler line, Fatherland line, Gustav line have crumbled to dust. Eventually, the Odor river will be forded In the east, Ihe Gothic line breached In the south and the Siegfried line forced in the west, and Ihe last great battle will be on.
