    I see Fredendall there on one of the pages and then the page about American tanks attacking and all I could think was of the looming disaster.

    Its like you can see the future. Especially sad when you see something that you know will be connected to heavy loss of life

    I'm sure they knew that the Germans knew where the Ford plant was but I'm a little surprised to see the caption for the amphibious jeep picture

    But what would the enemy do with the info?. The US as a whole was out of range of Axis bombers

    I know these are mostly photos, maps, and the like. I wonder if the stories in the rest of the paper reported on such things as Fredendall being sacked?

    That wrecked 88 has some interesting damage. Barrel looks like it has been neatly cut off. I wonder if the Germans did it. Or maybe the Brits did it to make it easier to tow?

    If the British forces were close enough to knock it out with an armoured car I would doubt that the Germans were in a position to take the time to cut the end off the barrel so more probably the latter.

    I am not sure how much negative information was reported and Eisenhower protected his reputation when Patton relieved him. It seems to me that "bad news" was kept to a minimum in the NY. Times. That is what is so fascinating to me when you read and compare to what really happened.

    3/30/43,3/31/43.4/1/43,4/2/43 & 4/3/43. An interesting calendar on April 1 showing the "devastating bombing" of the round the clock bombing of the English and the Americans. I am sure at this part of the Air War the Americans were still loosing large numbers of numbers of planes and crews to the German Luftwaffe and Flak.
