BLYTHEVILLE (AUK') COURIER NEWS Life Model Of FlipCorkin Returns Home • / ' By United Press , Colonel- Philip G. Ccchran, colorful chief of the First Air Commando Force In Buima, lias come home to report on air-borne operations In Far Eastern Jungle . The War Department announces that C Cochran .will report to General Arhold, Army Air Force com- riiarideiyon his mission in Burma— now completed. Cochran,' the real life model for Flip'Corkln of the comics, brought & new perspeclive of the future of sky -borne armies. He says, "We have : only scratched the surface of (lie possibility of ' moving . armies by air." Cochran added that his air commandos proved lhat armies raii be placed in .strategic places by air. His glider forces recently flew British Chlndlts deep behind enemy lines. '.The 'colonel also told of the fierce : touch and go of jungle > fighting. He said often one end of an air strip would be held by the British and the other end by the Japanese. A plnne taking off at one end, he said, would sometimes be shot down at the oilier end of the strip. Another . battlelront observer, Nelson Johnson. American minister to Australia, also has returned hoinc with a story to tell. Johnson, who toured the New Guinea baltlclront, says he was told fewer Americans were killed in the entire New Guinea campaign than at the Aralo beachhead In Italy. He described the Invasion at Hollandia like tills: "It actually amounted to the lifting of a city the 'size of Madison,. Wis., with Its utilities, restaurants, police force, hospitals and transportation, protecting Jt from the enemy, and placing It down 500 miles from the starting point. Four warehouses In England are required to,store Hie gilts of knitted garments scnl to the troops by Canadian women. HIGHLIGHTS FROM Of EST~BOOKS Seven Of Hitler's Generals Get X-Rayed In New Book "Hitler's Generals," by W. E. Hart (Doublcdny Dorau: $3,15) provides a valuable close up of seven of Germany's leading generals and two admirals—men who symbolize even more than Hitler himself the forces the Allies will soon face on continental Europe. Rommel, whose reputation as the' wily "desert fox'" wits so well played up that even his crushing defeat In Africa did little to deglamorlze him In the public mind, appears at a distinct disadvantage in Hart's book. The author, a former Qcr- man officer now In England, and who served at one time or another under the military leaders whom he sketches, pictures Rommel as not at nil cagey or even a good general, but a smart politician, deft at ballyhoo, who hitched his wagon to Hitler's star, and by that alone reached his present rank. General von Prltsch,. who supposedly was killed In action on the Polish front, died quite a different death, according to Hart. One narrow and highly dramatic escape from Hitler's henchmen was followed by another trap, but this time the jaws'did not miss. The book is more tlmn n series of profiles. It Is the story of the struggle between the old-line military and the Haul upstarts, of plots and counterplots. But despite the internecine warfare, all of these "supermen" had one goal In common; German domlmillon of the world. Of particular Interest Is Hart's evidence confirming the early suspicions of the. more far-sighted —that Germany Iwgan rearming ul- jnost as soon as other nations hud laid down Ijiolr weapons at^h'e conclusion of World War I. The book Is important. Gen. Dwlght D. Ktsenliower seeins to agree, ns a copy of "Hitler's Generals" was reported'recently as being on his desk at the Allied Command Headquarters. ' " .•*«*• niKKCHANT MAKINK SAGA "Battle of the Oceans" (Live- right: $2.50) Is the story of the gallant men and ships of the British merchant navy. There Is no more dramatic and poignant talc of heroism llufu that of tho men of the merchant marine, and the author, Warren Armstrong, has chronicled their life with the authenticity and color which only a seafaring man could do. The author sets his tales of the deeds of the merchant seamen ngnlnst tho historic background of England nt war from the bleak days of 1038 to 1043, He shows how Hitler's plan to use U-boats to cut Britain's supply lines was courageously thwarted by the British royal and merchant navies. The rutlilessncss and cruelty of the U-boat commanders Is vividly portrayed by the author's description of England's struggle to clear Hie seas of this menace. The role played by the British seamen In the evacuation of Dunkirk, the landing of Allied troops In North Africa, find the convoying of men mid supplies to the Allied tuitions is described with dramatic force. Having lived, worked and fought with Britain's merchant Bcamcn of both World Wars, the author sets forth his hcltcf that these men arc the real heroes of this, and the first World War. * * * You do n lot of thinking about where the "crooked candle" comes Into tho story before you finally find out that it plays the major part In the solving of "Tho Case of the Crooked Onndlc," by Brie Stanley Gardner (Morrow: $2). • Book Is the usual clever plot of the writer built around Perry Mason, his fictional lawyer and crime solver dd luxe.

First off, you probably have the Idea that the cavalry Is still a horse-ojicra branch of the services But you'll get a distinct surprise hi learning how K has been modern- iMd through mechanization. Sure the boys still know how to ride horses, but they also know how to move with trucks, jeeps, amphibians and execute all the frontal and Hanking maneuvers with mechanized power that made the cavalry so famous back In the days when the horse was the difference between winning and losing a buttle. General Fiamey, lop word In cavalry strategy, has gone to great pains to tell how youngsters are nut through the rigors of .present day training. And you cap. be 'assured that, after coming out of this course, our cavalrymen are more modern and belter conditioned than imy others, and llial they are following a tradition that has been one of tho most Illustrious In the armed forcer, of the country. • * * • Little, but, oil, my!
