Thus, the second battle of Greece Is being won almost as fast ns the first battle of Greece was lost.,At dawn April B, 1941, German armies Invaded Yugoslavia and Greece with -15 German divisions backed by 3000 planes. Britain quickly siphoned 00,000 Ill- armed men from its North African Army and shuttled them to Greece. Prime Minister Churchill later said England felt that the force was doomed from the start. But Britain had promised Greece help. And a promise is a promise. Yugoslavia's army folded up before it was fully inobiltad. Anxious to force a hasty decision, the Germans failed to destroy that army, and Its soldiers moved Into the mountains to light as guerrillas. Then the Nazis wedged between the 225.000 man Greek army and the British. On April 23, Greece surrendered and seven days later the British evacuated Io Crele under circumstances more difficult than Dunkerque. Finally, they we're .driven out of Crcle, loo. Now the Allies arc back In Greece, back In Yugoslavia and soon may be back in Crele. The Balkan shoe is on Ihe other fool Strikes To End In Detroit's War Factories DETROIT.
