TUJOSUAY, Al'Hll. 20, |<H:i SJN(;i/K COI'IKS KIVK CKN'O Today's War Commentary Hitler's Birthday It Certainly Cannot He A ffappy One By THOMAS J. HONOIUJG of (jnllei! I'rriis Adolf Hitler's 5.1th l)irthd«y mmivumirv cjiiuiot H- <\ very happy one us (lie f nisi r« tod mnstcr of' 15crcliU!.s K ii<lei> contemplates the mislukcs of his life. Them was a time when Hitler und many of his people were convinced Dial the- Kuehrci- »<a.s infMU>\«; that he could not ere; Hint his decisions were guided by some higher being-. Htil Dial time is no more. The si-eat" one has displayed the intensely human faculty of making mistakes -is grievous as those of any ordinary man. His Kreiilcst perhaps, was the mistake of believing (hat )><? could make no •mistakes. Hitlcr'.s first error sva.s lo launch * his armies into Poland on Scplem- bcr first, 1939. Had he chosen not to fight lie might hav c been able to continue his almost incredible bloodies; conquests that had won Tor him Chechoslovakia and Austria and instilled Hie four of German arms into the rest of the world But by attacking Poland Hitler .set into motion the massive, world '"'dc forces of the democratic nations which—three and a half years later —arc gathering now to destroy him. ; His Mistakes at Dunkirk. Hitler made DO military mistakes in' the field until Dunkirk, There he failed lo order enough fighter plants forward lo smash the - pitifully small RAF. 'He failed to prevent the escape of the British Army to England. He failed to follow up with an invasion of Britain which thin was wide open and virtually untie/ended. With all Europe in-his'powerful grip. Hitter's next blunder was his vacillating policy toward Prance and the other occupied nations. Th e combination Nazi policy of terror and cajolery, mixed with 1 plunder and bizarre efforts to sell Nazism to -Ihe conquered people, solidified public opinion in Ihe occupied lands against him. Here the Nazis planted the seeds of unrest that some day will reap them a bitter harvest. " 'Hitler's*"dccis'ifinAo-ii 1 . 'JtiiVe^ria; „ ensive was opened from Voronezh,!., £ s , ' esulting ultimately in the annihila- i „ . Kiml • ' 1941,-to attack Russia in the belief that he could win quickly was fatal. This was a. blunder of enormous implications. He failed to'gauge accurately the war potential of the Soviet Union. He failed to heed the mistakes of Napoleon'. He failed lo equip his soldiers adequately to withstand the rigors of a Russian winter. He brought down on his own head tlie impending two-front war which he had .sworn always lo avoid. Hitler's Krrors Multiply One mistake led to another in Russia. 'His next error was to believe lhat he -a one-time corporal — could direct the German army in the field. As actual and active rammaiKicr-in-chicf. he rushed his forces blindly against Stalingrad on the Volga and into tlio Caucasus, leaving behind the Russian salient based at Voronezh on his northern flank. This mistake brought about a succession of developments which nearly led to catastrophe. Instead of concentrating on Stalingrad, Ifitlcr -divided his southern armies into two parts- one besieging Stalingrad, the other veering southward into the Caucasus—thus weakening bolli of them. Hitler staked his persona] reputation on the promise that Stalingrad would be captured. He told his people on September 30th, 1342: "We shall take Stalingrad; you may be sure of lhat." These mistakes and (his promise came home to roost on November Ifllh when the Russian coimtcr-of- fcnsivc rrj lion of Hitler's Stalingrad siege! army, the retreat of his armies • from the Caucasus and the loss of { millions of his most valuable ( troops. I The confidence o( Killer's people ! in his ability as a prognosticator as ' well as a military genius was dipping toward tlie zero mark. Secret Service Failed Tlic Fuehrer committed his most recent blunder when lie failed to anticipate the Ameiican-Britlsfi landings in North Africa last November. Tlic landings foreshadowed Ihe doom of the Axis Empire in Africa and the Impculing invasion of Southern Europe, but at that time Hitler failed to realize it. His ; .secret .service—once considered the most efficient in the world—hart been outwitted. Now. with Europe directly threatened by resurgent Allied armies on all sides, Hitler appears to be committing tlio mistake that destroyed Prance and that led to Germany's defeat in the last war. He Is placing his reliance upon a .super Maglnot Line or wall around (he European coasts. History has proved the (utility of walls. II has proved lhat no wall i-s strong enough to resist the impact of powerful attacking forces. France learned lhat to her sorrow when the Maginol Line fell. Germany should have learned it, too, by her own experience In 1018 when the Hindcnburg Line was blasted apart by the Allies. That mistake may be Hitler's last, Perhaps when tlie time comes for Hitler'.'; 53lli birthday, his outlook on life will be decidedly narrower 'Ihan it is no\v. ft certainly can be nn happier than his 51th.
