' . There, they put their toughest and craftiest troops.' Hcaw machine guns have been posted in deep holes covered with iron plates and thickly piled over with sandbags, dirt and brush for camouflnEC. At the bottom of Ihose.holes, some of which are 18-lect deep, there arc tunnels into which the enemy can go for protection from heavy shelling and bombing. The machine nuns are mounted so that they can fire a virtual solid wall of steel the entire area. MANV DEADLY i\I(WTAUS UKADY In back of the 50-caliber machine guns arc mortars, hundreds of them, whose. 3000 yard range is greater than that of any American or Britith mortars known to be in use in Africa. Hidden in the vp.lieys'behind the mortar pasts is battery after battery of 88-millimeter guns, the notorious cannon which nearly wrecked the British 8th-Army at KniglitsbrUlgc and which blasted American armor between FakJ I' and Ka.vserine Gap. - Tlic Germans have about six good airdromes In their new defense ring, in addition to 10 makeshift landing fields. True, all these fields are under heavy Allied air altack. But bombs cannot knock oul airdromes -Ilicy m».sl be taken by ground troops. Furthermore, the Germans can draw on Sicily and Sardinia for lighter and bomber support. Bizertc itself was one of the most heavily fortified positions in the old French empire. The French took it in 1881 when it was only a .small fishing and trading station. It belonged to Phoenicians in Die pre-Christian era, but Ihey lost Bizcrlc lo the Romans, who lest it lo even lojiplii" liic tonnngc dropped on Bremen, Essen and Cologne In the smashing 1,000 plane raids last year. 'rlie jnr.ii) force of the twin raids, composed entirely ol four ciigined Halifax . and ' Lancaster I bombers, was concentrated' against I the sprawling Skoda at pllscii.Tho bombers flew more tlmn 1200 miles round-trip to attack Pilscn, which Ls located In what was formerly Czechoslovakia. A smaller force of fonr-cngin- cd Stirlings and Hullfaxcs blasted Mannheim, the second largest inland port of Europe. In Mannicim's industrial plants, Hitler turns put tanks, motor vehicles, dicsel engines, explosives and armaments for his war machine. IfOK'ei'ci', It was the most costly night of the war for the RAF. Fifty-five bombers were lost. • While the RAP hammered Germany from the west, the Hed Air Force may have been bombarding the country from the east. Berlin •reports the fifth raid -in a week on northeastern Germany. The German answering raid last night was feeble. One Na/i plane skirted the London area, and dropped bombs ' on a suburb. A number of houses were demloish- thc Turks. French. Then came llic Arabs, and Spaniards, and finally the Duritig the First World War, Germany showed its interest ill Bi- zcrlc when she suggested tentative peace plans by which the port would become a German possession. Italian demands for it were cue of the principal causes of Italy's entrance into the war against France in 1010 ni7.KWTK CALLED "GII5RALTAK OF FKANCE" Called Ihe "Gibraltar of France, 1 ' Bizertc had an airfield which in normal limes was the hub for service between Europe and Africa. It has two magnificent harbors. Us commercial and licet anchoiagcs. The fleet anchorage, or inner harbor, Is a deep, nO-milc-squarc liaven big enough lo accommodate the largest (led in llic world. Here arc dry- docfcs, machine and repair shops, oil tanks, coaling facilities, arsenals, barracks, and hospitals. Coastal ballerics were erected by the French to guard Bi/certo from the sea—great guns capable of firing huge projectiles 10 miles out into the Mediterranean. . By now, many of guns have been turned around by Ihe Germans to protect fli/.crlc from Ihe land side. The. others arc standing in their original positions Lo guard against any British .sea-borne thrust. , Underground chambers, hewn out of tio feet of solid rock, enable Bizerle to withstand a long siege. Muge quantities of food and supplies undoubtedly have been llown in by the Germans since November in anticipation of just such a battle as is beginning now. Bizerle has often been the repository of lost causes and melancholy , hopes. The While Russian fleet rusted and decayed there for many *•' years. It was there, too, lhat the remnants of S'win's republican navy .•sought refuge. The French fleet was there, watching the homeland wither and die in 1940.
