American spearheads forced the Loire river, and drove ten miles southward toward thi; submarine base of La Kochullo and ihi> big port of Bordeaux. The thrust may continue straight into Bordeaux. Or wheel north eastward toward Paris along the Loire's south bank. • To the northeast—massive Am cricn.n assault forces arc thrusting upward from Lc Mans, to mount a threat of encirclement iiKn Nazi General Von Klugc's troops.

It was th-:; fifth time Mortain had changed hands. The Yanks scored gains of up .to 1 1-1 miles all around the mountain area—as the or.emy began' its long-awaited fighting withdrawal.
