Reports thai Brazil would send only a token force arc emphatically denied by Gen. Enrico Caspar Diltrn, Brazil's Minister of War. hi Ills /trst public pronouncement concerning Brazil's participation In the European war. Tiie prnzillan Expeditionary Force is prepared for full-scale Joint- war operation, General Dutr.i emphasizes. Arrival of Brazilian sellers in the war zones will mark (he flrfl t'Ime' tliat land forces of a Latin American nation have fought overseas. Units of the Brazilian All* R>rce have been quietly assembling at undisclosed trans-Atlantic points in recent weeks, to support the Allied air offensive against the Nazis. Vigilant patrol of vital Atlantic waters by the Brazilian Navy has been an Important fac- toi- In defeating Hie .•submarine menace. Thus Brazil, more than any other Latin American country, has played an Increasingly active role in helping (o tt'ln the war. Military • leaders and high, government officials have prepared their people for heavy sacrifices which •participation in the war abroad would bring. 'Flic specially picked Brazilian Expeditionary Force has won fervid popular support. qilAU/KNGI! AfKiKESSION • Stocky,: lough, realistic President Qetuilo Vargas believes Brazilian fighters j have an important part to play In the European war. "This Is nn exceptional opportunity," lie ays, "to challenge the aggression f which we have been victims, ml to acquire authority for peace- line accords. liraull has a special iosltlon- ns the country most rep- esentntlve of Lathi culture among he victorious Allied nations." A Tearless fighter steeped In the raditlon of the "Oaucho" prairies if southern Brazil where lie was born, President Vargas didn't vlnce when Hitler's U-boats opened their "terror war" against Brazilian shipping In the spring ol 942. Even (hough Brazil was still technically n non-belligerent, he ordered the Brazilian Air Forces o sink nttnckiiig submarines on sight. Later, when Nazi undersea rald- ei's mercilessly slaughtered hundreds of innocent Brazllllans trav- elling on their country's ships President Vargas decreed a "state of belligerency" ns existing between Brazil and Germany. That was In August, 1942, and since then the Brazilian armed forces have sent many an enemy marauder to the bottom of the Soutl Atlantic. STRATEGIC UASES One of the biggest contribution: which Brazil under Vargas ha: made to the Allic^ cause lias beet the grnhllmr of ' naval rind'Til: base* in northeast Brazil for use by United State? forces. General George 0. Marshall, the United States Army's Chlaf of Staff. <n his biennial report, hns emphasized the vital Importance of those, strategic bases In pur world-wide aerial convoy system running to Europe, Russia, India and China. No less Important have beeu Brazil's vast contributions in the economic field.
