They never handled a gun before, 'fhey were over the ngc Hitler wanted when he formed his mighty hew army—too young for tin last war, too old for the new one Hitler was planning. Hitler needs them desperately. They are mostly clerks and nonessential professional men. On lhc oilier hand, the World War veterans catch on quickly to the rudiments of modern anus., nut they are over the best age for war and probably won't make the most efficient soldiers. The Hitler Youth now being called np arc Ihe best of Hie new crop. They have had prc-military training and are thoroughly "Nazificd," with the zeal which the Nazi army had during Ihe cont| of western Europe and the llrst big push into Russia. Draw On Reserves Casualties on the Russian front, in Africa and elsewhere have wiped out the cream of (he German army. The strategic pools held in reserve wilhin the Retch and elsewhere in central Europe have been moved out to lhc perimeter—lo Europe's front line. The newcomers will form lhc strategic reserves. Continued high casualties in Russia and those to come when the Allies invade western Europe will further deplete the German strategic reserves. And eventually, there will come a (imc when the troops now being mobilised will themselves be on the front line nnd Germany will have no more troop pools left.
