June 1954
New Republic;6/14/54, Vol. 130 Issue 24, p2
This article presents information on political developments of several nations. There was much nostalgia in the newspaper stories on June 6, written by surviving members of the-band of correspondents who landed with American troops in Normandy 10 years earlier. France was liberated, the Nazis overwhelmed and dictator Adolf Hitler fell. The invasion and the campaigns that followed, no matter how, and military analysts may quibble, were surely the most remarkable example in history of the operation of Allied armies. The Sweet Singer of the Ozarks, Republican Dewey Short of Missouri, Republican Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, told some amphibious warriors at the Marine base at Quantico to be "ever vigilant" against the potential "disaster" of a merger of military forces of the U.S.
