‘‘The rapid rise and spread of

This is only natural because Christ

Hitler May Have bound rlans
For Blitzkrieg In U. 5. Files
til JUilO JjJt-AH,
(Copyright, 1940,
By the Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, June 1.—There
is evidence in the files of the fed
eral government that a substantial
part of the plans for Adolf Hitler’s
blitzkrieg were “borrowed” from
the United States.
These plans would answer the
most interesting question of the
war in the Low Countries and in
How have the Germans been able
to strike such repeated sledge
hammer blows without serious in
terruption over so long a time?
For these plans are America’s
plans for mobilization in event we
go to war. and they gear up men
and machines and every other re
source of the nation to win war as
swiftly as possible.
They are plans for “total war.”
They cover every conceivable fac
tor in preparation for battle. Noth
ing approaching their efficiency
had been devised anywhere in the
world before the organizing genius
of the United States began drawing
them up 20 years ago.
No treachery—not even clever
espionage—is responsible for the
fact that the Nazis were aware of
The plans were available also to
the English and the French, who
did not “borrow” them. -
I cannot name the source of 1he
following information, but I can
vouch for the fact that it is both
official and reliable:
(1) Within a year after Hitler
came to power in Germany in 1933,
the Nazi military attache here be
gan studying the American war
mobilization blueprints.
The attache had the right to do
so under ordinary diplomatic pro
ne speni six mourns maxing ms
(.2) Not until a year after he com
pleted his study was the first of
the Nazis’ national defense laws
passed—on May 21, 1935,
C3) The war mobilization system
which took shape in Germany aft
er that was a striking parallel to
the American plan in all its princi
pal characteristics.
Agents from this country, work
ing in Germany, described it as a
“conscientious imitation.”
(4) The similarity was sharply il
lustrated in the Nazis’ very first
conquest — the “Anschluss” with
Immediately after occupying Vi
enna, the Germans made a census
Austrian industries and allocated
their respective share in supplying
war needs—in identically the same
way as the same step is outlined
under the American plan.
(5) Then came the invasion of
the Low Countries, and the repeat
ed overpowering blows against the
Allies which military men agree
can be explained only by highly
concentrated resources poured in
to the fighting front through ultra
efficient lines of communication.
This method of “winding up” for
a “haymaker” punch and following
through with all the strength the
nation can muster is the very es
sence of the American mobiliza
tion scheme. It starts by teaming
up all the factories where muni
tions and machines are made, in
tegrating the roads and railroads
over which they must travel, allo
cating fuel and electric power to
vital points, and keeping men flov.
ing up to the front while putting
those behind the lines into jobs 1
where they will do the most good. <
