Hauser, Ernest O.
October 1950
Saturday Evening Post;10/7/1950, Vol. 223 Issue 15, p36
This article emphasizes that the communists among the ranks of dock workers in London, England could threaten the U.S. supply line to Great Britain in the event of an all-out war against the Soviet Union. It explains that these dock workers were patriotic and served well the Allied cause in World War II but a war with the Soviet could prove otherwise. It reports on several strikes by dock workers that were orchestrated by the communists. These strikes were enough to threaten the peacetime economy of Great Britain.
