j Nazis Retreat
With Germany unable to furnish
| any more troops for the fighting in
; Italy and the Allies swinging the
full weight of their mailed fist in
western Europe, Nazi Field Mar-
shal Kesselring continued to with-
draw his forces to the waist of the
peninsula, where they could hole up
behind the last of the Apennirc
peaks without being threatened by
landings to their rear.
As the enemy fled northward. A!-
lied medium bombers ranged far
ahead, blasting bridges and rail fa-
cilities, while fighter-bvrubers poured
a withering fire into the retreating
columns themselves leaving behind
a trail of burning vehicles and absn.
Despite the fact that Kesselring
managed to extricate his troops
from the Allied trap set by the
British 8th army attacking from the
south and the U. S. 5th attacking
the enemy rear from the west, the
Nazis suffered heavy losses in ab-
sorbing the full shock of the first
