Australian Invasion Urged German Admiral's Broadcast [Newspaper Article] — Army News — 2 November 1941
Australian Invasion Urgedl German Admiral's Broadcast LONDON, October 30.-- Germany's campaign to swing. Japan into the . war reached new heights last night when Rear-Admiral Luetzow, spokesman of the German Admiralty, in a broadcast from Berlin boasted to the world that Australia is so inadequately defended that she is not able to resist a serious attack from a big power. . "Nobody can predict when or how the animosities in the Pacific will lead to an explosion," he added. There was no direct reference to Japan in the broadcast, but since there is no big power-in deed, no power-in the Pacific at present endangering the Em pire's and, therefore, Australia's interests, except Japan, the spokesman's listeners could draw their own conclusions, says the Sydney Morning Herald. Admiral Luetzow commenced by saying, "The impoctant coastal stretch from Brisbane to Melbourne is only .9o miles, yet Australian ex perts are cudgelling their brains as to how their small forces could pre vent an a...

ARMIES DEFENDING MOSCOW UNBROKEN Germ.ans Claim to be at River Don SOVIET SILENT ABOUT SOUTHERN FRONT LONDON, October 30. "There appears no doubt that the Russian armies defending Moscow are still unbroken and capable of launching counter attacks, says the Australian -Associated Press correspondent.
