Almost at once, 1943 will slip into the disuse of the years and with it go all the trials and hardships produced by the war. In 1943 many of the good things to eat were still not to be found on American tables. Gas for the family automobile and most foods could be obtain.ed only by judicious p resentation of the ration coupon and although refr'igera'tors and washing machines had all but vanished from the American scene, Americans saw new hope in the 1 i fting of the restri.ction on coffee sales. The year was with that shook the world. Our conqJ est of North Africa was quickly followed by the invasion of' Sicily. A few weeks later we shinnied llp the. Italian boot and accelerated the forced retirement of Benito Mussolini. In Russia, a magnificent back-against-thewall stand at Stalingrad, the Russians began their own grim offensive that cost the Gennans dearly in men and machines and saw city after city return to Soviet control. Hamburg was for all purposes knocked out of the war by the concerted bombings of the RAF and our own American Eighth Air Force, and along with other great Hunnish cities, Berlin came in for its share of attention as the Allied "target for tonight.'" Safety minded Japanese stole stealthily one day from th: Aleutians, and down under in the Pacific, Aussies and Yanks had begun the long trek back and were relentlessly driving the Japanese from \heir island sanctuaries. A.iiniral Darlan was assassinated by a young de Gaullist and Hitler's dreain of allied disunity was rudely broken by the epic meetings at Moscow and Theran. A fine Christmas gift was the sinking of the 26,000 ton Scharnhorst by British naval units in an action off North Cape in the Barents Sea, and as the year drew to its close, the American poople were quietly preparing to celebrate the New Yea:r with a prayer to God f'or victory and the safe return of the1 r soldiers. It is our that 1944 will prove to be a year of con-: stemation for our enemies, that the ships of the Allied Na.:. tions emptied of their cargoes of war will be bearing the weary voyagers baBe. And _that the peace M11ch -follows on that great day will. forever to the eternal credit of man. A SOLDIER'S 1l44 This is New Year's. 1944 I. am only one soldier There are mil,Lion. s of us.
