ABSTRACT
The article discusses events related to world politics. The author suggests the fall of Tobruk, Libya to German forces and Japanese attacks in China and the Aleutian Islands have ended U.S. optimism about the war. Analysts suggest German general Erwin Rommel's leadership and a new German cannon helped German forces invade Libya. An appropriations bill before the U.S. Congress has called for construction of aircraft carriers instead of battleships.
