Lest there be any impression that victor vin Tunisia will mean the end of the war is in .sight, il (-an'be .said that il won t even mean (he beginning of the end.

The total strength of Ger-' er lnan tilc troops deployed bc- many and Italy is something like 300 to 325 divisions.

Is Tunisia a sample of the difficulties which our men will have to overcome on the Continent? If eight Axis divisions can hold our admittedly surpcrior forces for such a length of lime as Kommcl has in Tunisia, is it not logical to expect that, many enemy divisions inside Europe will be able lo brat back an invading force with ease? Fortunately, Ihe situation in •lunisia is not. parallel with that which we may expect In Europe. Tunisia itself is a tiny spot on the map Intti which the full |»wcr of thc Africa Corps is concentrated. The terrain makes il easily dc- To guard a coastline as long as Europes' would require a tremendous conccnlralion of men. It is estimated lhat. at best, Hitler would have about 200 divisions available for defense of western and southern Europe. Strategists hold that one division of defense Iroops must be deployed behind a front of no more than ten miles if il is to be efficient. Thus. .Kith 200 divisions, thc Germans theoretically could hold about 21.00 miles of coastline. But the shore lenjjth totals roughly 5000 nir miles, including the Italian monctie in a service also to be featured with liymiis sung by 11 choral group from the Melhoillsi, Presbyterian a'rid 'Baptist, churches, supplemented by a number''of soldier vocalists.
