This article details the Russian sweep from the Vistula across the Oder, the American return to Luzon in the Philippines and invasion of Iwo in the Volcano Islands, 750 miles from Tokyo, Japan. These were the principal milestones of the sixth winter of the war -- the fourth of American participation. It describes the great Russian winter offensive which spread from the Baltic to the Carpathians compensated for the sharp reverse suffered by the American Armies in the Ardennes at the end of 1944. It also relates the American air operations in Europe and the American occupation in Luzon Island, Philippines.
