ONE OF THREE SHELLS A DUD, DUE TO SLAVE LABOR NAZI DOCUMENT ADMITS

From the September 25, 1944 Edition of Stars and Stripes



SUPREME ALLIED HQ, Sept. 23—A captured German document shows that the enemy high command now knows what every Allied battle-line soldier has known for a long time—that approximately one out of every three German shells is a dud.

The document, a report on an official munitions investigation, contained a statement by a German battery commander that out of 4,372 rounds inspected, 1,312 were found defective.

Sabotage by Germany’s slave labor was credited here with contributing materially to this situation.
