TO: TACTICAL AIRCRAFT/FIELD UNITS
FROM: G2//LOG//
SUBJ: OPERATION JIMMY DOOLITTLE
À: TACTIQUES D'AVIONS / DOMAINE DES UNITÉS DE: G2 / / LOG / /
SUJET: OPÉRATION Jimmy Doolittle


THE CAPTURE OF GAO BY ADVANCING COMBINED UNITS OF FRENCH-MALIAN FORCES HAS NOW MADE IT POSSIBLE TO BEGIN THE ASSAULT ON TIMBUKTU ITSELF. SINCE LINES OF COMMUNICATION MAY WELL BE STRETCHED BEYOND DESIRED REACH FOR AN IMMEDIATE APPROACH TO THE CITY; AND SINCE ALSO IT HAS BEEN REPORTED THAT WATER-ELECTRICITY HAS BEEN DENIED THE CIVILIANS, TIME BECOMES OF ESSENCE

THE PROPOSAL THEREFORE IS TO SHORTEN THE LONG MARCHES UP THE HIGHWAYS FROM KONNA OR DOENTZA AND USE THE WIDE WATERWAYS OF THE NIGER RIVER TO ADVANCE TO THE OBJECTIVE VIA AMPHIBIOUS ASSAULT FROM THE AIR. PHOTOS BELOW SHOW SOME OF THE AIRCRAFT IN FRIENDLY FORCES THAT MAY BE MADE AVAILABLE FOR SUCH AN OPERATION. CONSIDER THE SCHEME AS OPPOSED TO A DELAYED GROUND OPERATION THAT MIGHT EASILY BOG DOWN AT ANY STRETCH OF THE HIGHWAY.
LA CAPTURE DE GAO PAR AVANCE DE FRANÇAIS UNITÉS-MALIENNES FORCES EST MAINTENANT PERMIS DE COMMENCER L'ASSAUT SUR LUI-MEME TOMBOUCTOU. DEPUIS DES LIGNES DE COMMUNICATION PEUT BIEN TENDU AU-DELÀ DE LA PORTÉE SOUHAITE UNE APPROCHE IMMÉDIATE DE LA VILLE, ET DEPUIS outre, il a été rapporté que les EAU ELECTRICITE A ÉTÉ REFUSÉ les civils, le temps devient DE L'ESSENCE/


La proposition est donc de raccourcir le longues marches UP DE LA VOIRIE OU Konna DOENTZA ET UTILISATION DES VOIES LARGES DE LA FLEUVE NIGER POUR FAIRE AVANCER VERS L'OBJECTIF VIA assaut amphibie de l'air. PHOTOS ci-dessous montrent certains des avions DANS LES FORCES AMIES QUI PEUVENT ETRE MIS A LA DISPOSITION POUR UNE TELLE OPERATION. Considérer le régime comme S'OPPOSE À UNE OPÉRATION DE TERRE DELAYED qui pourrait facilement s'enliser À TOUT tronçon de la route.
