NEW FRONT NEEDED Will Turkey Be Hitler's Next Victim? [Newspaper Article] — Army News — 18 December 1941
NEW FRONT -NEEDED Will, Turkey: B$ Hitler's .Naext ,Victim? London, Monday.--The fact that the Red armies on' a 50o mile front, from, Tikhvin to Yelets, are advanc ing, recapturing scores of villages and clriving back 51 German divisions in various stages of retreat; is evi dence of the magnitude of the Rus sian victories, but there is no disposi tion in London to regard thie German army as decisively defeated.

One anticipated new adventure. is toward Gibraltar, and another appears ,b be -Turkey. Evidence of this appears...
