Ktpnrts L'iic<infirnn-d The Na/.i rnnorts. of conrse. hnvc 10 Allied confirm:! lion jis yet but .here seems lo be no particular eason to rlouht them. The movc- ncn|. of such a hiii;c armiidii iiKli- cnlr;; that bis events imiv be about o begin, probably in the central Mediterranean. And sprakinK "f the central Mcditeniini'an there ire only three objectives there which might, incur a hircc-srale Allied iiltack— the Itnlian "islands nl Sardinia mid Sicily, and the 'ornier French i=land cif Corsica. Allied nfTiciiils have sniri that the Mediterranean would iiavc lo bo 'cleaned up" to prepare the way for tho invasion of Europe nflw the courtliest of Tunisia. They undoubtedly referred to tho.-e three ;i? islands thnt lie atlv.v.irt Ihc :ra approaches to Iialv. us well as tho eastern Mcdilcrr.mran islands iiiarriitiff the approaches to Gifrcr. If Sicily and Sardinia— and perhaps Con-ica— are the objectives of Ihe reported Allied" fleet movement from Gibraltar, action can be expected al almost, any hour. T-'oiir-f);iy Trip It's 800 miles from Gibraltar (o Sardinia and 1000 miles to Steily. Traveling at a moderate rate ot speed, n convoy could cover tho distance in about four days, although taking possible evasive actions into consideration, it may take a dny or so longer. -Since the Germans rcpurled that (lie first continnent left Gibraltar on Thursday and the >:ccc.nd one on Saturday, they should reach their destination or destinations by tomorrow cr Wednesday — always assuming, of course, that they actually arc heading for the Italian Islands. Allied move against Snrriinin, Sicily 01- Corsica fit this time. They ire the main bases-'for Axis supplies to Tunisia. On Sardinia and 'icily Ihe enemy has huge air fields from which most of (he Axis air suppcrt in Tunisia develops. The SO-mile stretch between Cape Boii in northeastern Tunisia and Mnr- saln, Sicily, mnkes II relatively easy for the Germans, operating under cover of darkness, to ferry supplies by nir and to evacuate selected personnel by the same route. \Vnulit Tlnom Africa Corps H Ihey could be occupied by the Allies, the A>'is armies lighting in Tunisia would wither and die. They would find it impossible to evacuate as their route of retreat ^crow the ivfedilcrrancan .narrows would be cnl. nfl completely. And Ihc Itnlian fleet—what's left nf it— would be bottled 'effectively In. the raslecn iMcdilcrrfinrnn which would Ilion he cpeiicd .fur Allied supplies (nice moie. Wilh the Mediterranean fully rc.Mprrd, an. enormous .saving in Allied shipping would result, enabling; us lo shin supplies to global fronts through (hat sea which Mussolini used to call his own. in- slcad of around the Cape of Good Hope. It is pissible that -if the Allies are movinp against Sicily. Sardinia and Corsica. British assault troops might Munch a simultaneous al- lark ngninst'Crete in the eastern Mediterranean. II has been, reported I hat British and Cyprian troops have just completed cx- bauslivc invasion maneuvers'nti the island of Cyprus, cast ot Crqlc. If such moves nre Impending, Ihey probably will hnppen soon, For those Mediterranean islands are ewenlial not only defensively, but, sis offensive springboards for the invasion of southern Europe.
