Bayeux is in Allied hands, Caen almost as our forces move inland on the Cherbourg peninsular. People here are filled with awe at the speed and coordination of the invasion. The liberated French are telling battlefield reporters that the Germans were discouraged and overwhelmed as they pulled out. But Secretary of War Stimson has warned,” It would be folly to believe that the period of counter-attack will be short.” True, but this graph from the Greeley, Colorado paper tells the story of American might. Meanwhile, a light snow fell north of here last night. Good thing Grandma is sending my mother some sweaters.
