WILL GERMANY CRACK?

Sub a ""Factual Report on Germany from Within"", this is exactly that, and the author presents objectively, analytically, and conclusively a great deal of basic information which is not available elsewhere. With all its facts and figures this appraisal of Germany and her vulnerabilities is consistently interesting. ""Hagen"" uses a pseudonym; most of his information stems back to underground sources, which give him reason to feel that conditions exist which presage her defeat. Individually, they are the labor creats of million ""ven"" imported from conquered countries or imprisoned to work for Germany; the decline in production and quality of work; the state of the over worked, under nourished men and women; the fuel problem, the transportation problem, clothing, farming, and the growing opposition of certain classes (the vanishing middle class, the Catholics, and surprisingly, the new youth). Hagen sees that the fure of internal opposition are weak at present, but could be a potential if properly played. Sober, solid reading, and thoroughly interesting.
