Now It Can Be Told: Cadillac’s Secret Weapon

Thursday, Feb. 4, 1943

Screen Shot 2015-02-01 at 12.47.32 PMThe Red Army had expelled the Nazis from Stalingrad and reported routing and rounding up over 300,000 soldiers. No one had to explain what the Russians would do with their prisoners given the rape, burning, pillaging, and murder the Nazis had carried out when they first invaded. From our vantage-point today, we know how critical this Eastern front success was, even though so many Americans resented being allied to communists. And today, with coffee in every form available anywhere anytime, how would we react to the news that coffee rations were going to be reduced to one pound per person every six weeks. Thank goodness Roosevelt and Churchill had agreed at Casablanca on a European invasion this year. Surely this can’t go on much longer!
