Some of Mr. Winston Churchill's words. Plans for victory. Some instances of plans that went astray. A brief review of war events. The plans for 1944 which include not only the improvement and strengthening at every point in the vast armed encirclement of allied transport, but the attack and the destruction at every point within the circle of enemy transport. Speed as the dominant note in the plans. Unity and a comprehensive relation between one plan and the next, between each and all together, between the separate plans and the master plan. The Empire as one, the United Nations all working together under a Supreme Commander-in-Chief, backed by the combined strength and determination of all in every part of the United Nations, going forward into the unknown of the coming spring with pulses beating more firmly, eyes brighter, hopes higher, and bending backs with a will to exploit the Allied military, naval and air advantage to the full. Making the supreme effort.
