GREAT VICTORIES [Newspaper Article] — Murray Pioneer — 19 November 1942
GREAT VICTORIES The past few weeks have been marked by great victories to Allied arms in North Africa and the South West Pacific At the same time the Russians Iiuvbj. continued to hold the Germans at Stalingrad and in the northern Caucasus. Never since the world conflict began have the United Nations achieved such momentous suc cesses as these. That the Sth Army, with whom the A.I.F. again played a magnificent part, was able to smash liommel's forces and put the remnants to headlong flight out of Kgyol has inspired new confidence in British leadership and military prowess. Skilfully com bined with the joint Anglo-American invasion of French North Africa—an action which by its unprecedented mag nitude demonstrates the two countries' tremendous power at sea—this latest, and we hope final, swing of the pen dulum of battle across the Western Desert looks like driving the Axis forces completely out of the Dark Continent. Whatever we may think of Darlan's puzzling attitude—is he really an...
