The invasion Is coin- ins, and one thrust undoubtedly will be made against the Dalmatian coast, l r ive Adriatic Islands, Llssn, Ifvar, Melada, Brae and Curzola, have been tnkeit by Anglo-American commandos and Yugoslav guerrillas. They will be used as springboards for the main invasion for s. All these Important pre-inva MOD landings occurred around Spalnto (Split), the old toivn of the Honiiiii Emperor Diocletian. Spalato is a strategic stronghold en ihe Adriatic. Connected by rail with the hinterland, Spalato is linked with the best military highways, some built by the Roman Caesars and some by Napoleon. Spalato is the finest" and largest i;orl on ihe Adriatic. Heavy battleships antl, troopships can easily and safely anchor there. For this reason Ihe Nazis have fortified Spalato and use it as a base. The former Dalmatian port of Cnltaro was the base for Austrian-Hungarian navy nnd later was used by the Yugoslavs for the same purpose.

This will be true not only because Tito, as he claims, has 200,000 fighting guerrillas, nor because Mfkhnllovicli has 300,000 veteran soldiers and, ns he said, on the day of invasion can raise another 300,000—it will be (rue because.
