The United Nations can look with satisfaction upon their war record during the month of May—the best overall month of the entire conflict. During Hint month we dealt the i enemy savage blows from which lie will find It difficult to recover. The injuries we Indicted upon (lie Axis during May will show up, In the flnnl analysis, us the beginning of the: enemy's recession. There is no wishful thinking in tlie record. We needn't look al it llirough rose-colored glasses. II speaks for itself. We destroyed an entire enemy army in Tunisia—an Axis catastro"- phe equal lo that al Stalingrad. There, we shattered for all time the legend of Axis invincibility by killing or capturing close lo 275,000 enemy Iroops. Figures Favor Allies During, may Iho.

In the Atlantic, our accomplishments during 'May were little short of phenomenal. The submarine campaign, upon which Germany is devoting most of her', energies and basing virtually all of her hopes, has'been met'and checked, we destroyed more German submarines in May thnn in any oilier month and German communiques admit lhat their u-boats were markedly unsuccessful/, in halting Ihe enormous flow of Allied war material lo the arious battlefronts.

It ever the Allied peoples needed a lift, they gol it In May. iYet, It should bo remembered that our record last month was only Ihe result of back-breaking labor, prodigious toll and sacrifice and and the lives of many of our fighting men.
