Closing the ring sets forth the year of conflict from June 1943 to June 1944. Aided by the command of the oceans, and the mastery of the U-boats, and our ever-growing superiority in the air, the Western Allies were able to conquer Sicily and invade Italy, with the result that Mussolini was overthrown and the Italian nation came over to our side. Hitler and the circle of countries he had occupied was isolated and with the immense onslaught of Russia from the east was completely surrounded. At the same time Japan was had been forced on the defensive and was vainly trying to hold the vast territories she had overrun.
