VICTORY IN THE WEST

The battle in France during last summer brought the German forces many successes, but it did not bring final victory, a decision, peace. It could not be otherwise, for even Grand-Admiral Raeder, in his speech to the dockers at Wilhelmshaven on January 28th 1941, said:

"GERMANY COULD WIN THE WAR AGAINST ENGLAND ONLY IF SHE SUCCEEDED IN DESTROYING BRITISH NAVAL POWER AND IN SEVERING ENGLAND'S SUPPLY LINES AT SEA."

This war will be decided in the Atlantic where the greatest sea battle of all times is being fought.

HOW GOES THE BATTLE IN THE ATLANTIC?

The British Admiralty recently reported:-

(1) The total losses of British, Allied and Neutral merchant ships since the outbreak of war up to the end of March 1941 amount to 5,189,802 tons. These losses are nearly compensated for by the increase in the British merchant fleet in newly built ships, by purchase, and by the capture of German and Italian ships.

(2) For every ship sunk in convoy, 203 ships have reached British harbours safely. And these ships brought bombers, fighters, tanks, guns, shells, bombs and foodstuffs.

(3) The speed at which the continually increasing production of armaments of the British Empire and the USA is brought to England is increasing. And now President Roosevelt has decided that American weapons for the Allies will in future be carried on American ships.

DR JOSEPH GOEBBELS boasts loudly of the tonnage sunk.

He has - verbally - sunk 9,920,000 tons up to the end of March 1941. He will make you believe that we already have to eat frogs, rats and snakes, and that we are finished.

BELIEVE WHOM YOU WISH!

We are not going grey about this. The continually growing Fleet and Air Force of Britain daily tracks down German U-boats and long-range bombers and destroys them on the high seas, in harbour, in the air and on the ground. Which of us is right will not be shown in the German Propaganda Ministry, but in the Atlantic and in the destroyed harbours and aerodromes of Brest, Lorient, Bordeaux, in the docks of Kiel and Wilhelmshaven, in the Focke-Wulf works of Bremen, etc. But the new American bombers which you will see and hear in the skies of Germany, will show you what time has in store for you:

FINAL VICTORY IN THE ATLANTIC FOR ENGLAND AND THE USA

THEY SAILED FOR ENGLAND

In 1914-1918 the German U-boats were used exactly as today to avert the deadly menace threatened by the Arsenal beyond the seas. The Naval Memorial at Laboe near Kiel erected to the fallen of the Kaiser's Navy, registers 199 sunk German U-boats.

Most of them were destroyed within a short period of particularly feverish activity. Otto v. Weddigen, the commander of U-9 was one of the most celebrated German heroes of the last war. In 1915 he failed to return. Hitler has given the Oak Leaves and the Knights Cross to three of his U-boat commanders.

SCHEPKE, KRETSCHMER AND PRIEN.

Schepke is dead. Kretschmer is a prisoner of war in England. And Prien… who has recently heard of Prien? He has been missing for a month!

WHERE IS PRIEN?

And what could have happened to the other U-boat Commanders and crews? For strategic reasons the British Admiralty will never announce whether a German U-boat has been sunk. We can only say this:

(1) Since 1918 the methods of combating U-boats have been improved enormously. There is the ASDIC-listening device, there are incomparably better reconnaissance and bombing planes. Much heavier depth-charges, and so on.

(2) When a U-boat is sunk, it sinks in most cases with all hands. Those crews who have avoided death by drowning, have had very, very good luck.

There are hundreds of German U-boat officers and men in British hands. But how many more sailed for England?
