Patton's Men Said To Have Established Bridgeheads Across Moselle River BRITISH SECOND ARMY IS ADVANCING SLOWLY IN HOLLAND Unconfirmed Report Says The Germans At Brest Have Surrendered (By United Press) The American invasion of Germany is making headway. Lieutenant General Hodges' first army, now more than six miles inside Germany, is reported advancing- steadily and almost at will. The first details of the invasion have come from "United Press War Correspondent Henry T, Gorrcli;" who is with the Americans. Gorrell, in a dispatch sent at 1 p. m., German time, said the invasion oi the Reich was- proceeding in strength. Spearheads were moving ahead of the main columns in strong exploratory thrusts.

But Allied headquarters say the Nazis holed up in the forest country have good territory from which to wage defensive battles. Right now the first army is prob- infr Hitler's west wall defenses, looking for its Achilles' heel, looking for a spot to crash through in strength before the Germans can mount a counter-attack. Other elements of -the first army !o the north arc less than five miles from the German frontier in a push eastward through Belgium. T.'iere is strong German resistance in this sector, and American big guns continued to shell the cily of Aacncn, just over the border. Strong German resistance also is being encountered bj' tho Allies at the northern and southern approaches to the Siegfried line.
