Last , ) 1 a z - to ext ""guish a was the 3rd fire n * launched with Teutonic thoroughness in each case, and how close each game to its ambitious goal-to divide a n d destroy opposing American and British forces. In each case o n l y desperate last ditch firttinr and the thinly arrival of reserves a f t e r long forced inarches saved American troops from beinp engulfed and cut to pieces. Both times brilliant German commanders slashed through the weakest point in the long Yank lines. In February, 1942, Rommel foresaw that all German troops left in Africa would be bottled up between the British 1st army and American 2nd corps to the west ana Montgomery's pursuing 8th army which was pushing up from the south toward the Mareth line. Hoping to deal with these enemies 1 at a time, he broke his panzers from Paid Pass through the weakest point in the American lines, buttered thin over a wide area. Two. battalions of the 34th infantry division holding positions on 2 hills outside the pass delayed the Germans precious hours until reinforcements could be moned. After sweeping over these 2 battalions, taking hundreds of prisoners, Rommel's panzers drove on 60 miles through Sbeitla and Kas- serine gap until halted at Thala by British tanks and American artillery of the 9th infantry division whfch made a 740 m i l e march through winter storms to arrive in the nick of time.' Another German column swinging around in a pincers from the south had taken Gafsa Feriana and Thelepte. Alarmed by the losses and Montgomery's rapid drive toward the ' Mareth line, Rommel reluctantly had to pull back his battered panzers without achieving either of his 2 greatest goals. These goals had been, first, to seize American headquarters near Thebessa and all its supplies and, 2nd, to swing northward through Thala behind the rear o£ the British first army, capture the great allied base at Constantin and perhaps even thrust west and take Algiers itself, supreme headquarters of the allied forces in Africa. Von Hundstedt, like Rommel was under pressure 'from the south when he attacked. But this time it was from Patton instead of Montgomery. He picked for his attack the Schnee Eifel plateau in the center of an 88 mile line held by only 3 American divisions 2 of them crippled. Two infantry units delayed him in a gallant stand, but eventually were surrounded and von Ru:\d- stedt's panzers rampaged' 50 miles through the American lines before 2nd armored division · tankmen cracked into them beadon, just 3 miles short of their Meuse river goal, and bashed them back 10 miles. By -that narrow margin did the American armies-escape being cut in half. Von Rundstedt drove his tanks within 2% miles of the American first army headquarters--far closer than Rommel got to American 2nd corps headquarters at Thebessa. And he got within 500 yards of an American dump containing millions of gallons of gasoline which the Germans badly needed to fuel their drive. Had it not been for Ernie Harmon and his tankmen at Celles the German Thala of the Tunisian breakthrough -- Von Rundstedt might have seized enough supplies to go on toward his other goals- north to Liege, which can be compared to Rommel's push toward Constantin, and then to Antwerp and later perhaps Paris, the Algiers of this nazi drive. One thing Rommel did achieve. He didn't take Thebessa, Constantin or Algiers, but he did upset allied plans and delayed for 2 months a pending allied offensive thus prolonging the end of the African campaign until May -19 1943. It remains to be seen whether von Rundstedt has had similar success in this direction. Certainly he did succeed in throwing al- at the controls, Zerbe and Sies re moved the whining charge, opened the transport door, and pushed i overboard. There was a loud ex plosion. ..

E. Zerbe, Valley View Pa., who had the plane at 10,000 feet, sent Radio Operator Cpl Gilbert Sies, Staunton, III., to investigate. Sies reported that a depth charge, part of the cargo of 'njnjunition, was "buzzing like Co-Pilot C. W. Wages of Kansas City, Kans., took the controls while Zerbe investigated The pilot returned, white-faced and quickly called home base, asking what to do. A brief message back said: Mo worry about.
