New Blow Against Hitler's Southern Wall Was Carefully Planned NAZIS CLAIM TO HAVE WIPED OUT BRITISH AIR-BORNE TROOPS American. First Army In Germany Repulses Attacks By Germans (By United Press) Tho Allies invaded Albania today and already they are moving inland on a broad front. They also landed on islands off Yugoslavia. Tho now blow against the southern wall of Hitler's cracking European forti-css was carried out by sea and airborne forces from Italy. They swept across the Adriatic after months of preparation. Early advices indicate that the invasion of Albania is on a big scale. The Germans say' the landing.s arc continuing. The onemy identifies the invaders as Anglo-American and says they are meeting: violent resistance. The invaders received strong support from Allied nava] asid aerial forces as they went ashore. But neither Allied headquarters or. tho Nazis have identified the exact areas of the invasion. For months, though; Yugoslav partisans, Albanian guerrillas. British. ,' .commandos-" and Allied bombers had attacked the islands and parts of Albania in preparation for the invasion. ' For nearly two \vcoks British, landing craft had run among- the southern Dalmatian islands, ferrying troops, partisans and supplies to the jumping off areas. As the invasion got under way, Marshal Tito's partisans occupied the strategic islr.nd of Pag, one of the northernmost of those in the Adriatic. It's near Italy's Jstrian peninsula. The patriot forces in Albani unl. oincially arc placed as high 3.5.25,000 men. A quick drive across Albania and Yugoslavia would seal the fate of the N'azis in Greece and the Aegean' islands, although the Germans have boon reported pulling out Of that territory 'or some time. ~"' And just a word about Albania, itself. The Italians seized the tiny kingdom on April 7th, 1939. Mussolini .still droar.-iing of ar. expand- in^ empire, turned to neighboring Greece on October 2Sth, 1940. but the Greeks decided to- fight and drove the Italian invaders back (o Albanian soil. In April 1941 the Germans came to Mussolini's rescue, nnd the Greeks in Albania were crumbled on April 23rd. However, since then the Albanian guerrillas have been active agairist the occupying forces, first the Italians, then the Xazis.
