1941 06 13 ....... Cover: ... "Boots, boots, boots, boots, moving up and down again . . ." sang Kipling a propos of the infantry of a former epoch, and this happy study of a cheery British infantryman cooling his feet after a march over scorching desert sand reminds us that, although mechanical transport has done away with a lot of unnecessary foot-slogging, in the last resort it is the infantry which decides a battle, and it does so on its feet. For this reason a good soldier bestows as much care upon his feet as upon his rifle. Photo, British Official: Crown Copyright ....... Articles Inside: ... Our Searchlight on the War .....

On June 22 Hitler tore off the mask of friendship with Stalin and, true to his fulminations in " Mein Kampf," set forth to destroy Soviet Russia. The Nazi war-machine, consisting, it is said, of 100 divisions, was flung against the Russian frontier in one of the greatest political treacheries and military gambles in history. Hitler's objective is, of course, to break Russia before returning to attack Britain. According to Ribbentrop, the forces defending Russia consist of 160 divisions. Planet News .......
