ABSTRACT
Focuses on the German dominance in Southeastern Europe, which constituted a setback for the Nazis. Report that German dictator Adolf Hitler could either keep hostilities out of Southeastern Europe altogether by the threat of superior power, or he could assimilate it to his regime by a short, and decisive struggle; Demand that Southeastern Europe route should be kept open both, for trade and for political penetration to the East and possibly to Africa as well; View that if Germany were to wrest from Great Britain, the traditional sea route, she could not seize, or hold it without a secure base of operations on the Balkan Peninsula; Fact that the Third Reich does not need the supplies it could obtain over this historic trade route in order to continue the war; Opinion that Germany under the blockade should have an uninterrupted supply of grains and other foodstuffs from the Danube Valley; Existence of an active front which consumes military supplies; Efficiency of the blockade depends largely upon, the speed with which Germany approaches a shortage in critical materials; Possibility of having to deal with Turkey on the other flank, if the hostilities are not quickly ended; Consequence of the war is that Hitler must Win the Battle of the Balkans quickly and decisively in order to make secure his previous victory.
