If they wee withdrawn, West ermany would be done for; if they are not, war may begin in Germany, with he Soviets "defending" East :errany. In such a situation, East German roops would.be used in an essentially satellite role. East German divisions ouJ. be integrated in Soviet higher commands, with Soviet formations on ither flank, and to their rear, to keep them from retreating. Locks in East Germany are not now adequate, and German production of weapons goes mostly to the oviets. Some stocks of weapons are available in East Germany; the balance of what will be needed is now farther to the East. In Brest-Litovsk, for example, there is a depot with thousands of pieces of artillery, which will be brought to the :+est at the appropriate time. At the moment, the Soviets would consider it dangerous to equip the Alert Police fully because of their unreliability. Each unit now has only enough heavy weapons for training purposes--not more than five tanks, for example. Officially, all prisoners of war were repatriated by l919 except for a large number of war criminals. It is possible that these are given favors5be treatment in return for promised cooperation. But they are banically anti- Soviet and unreliable. In case of dire necessity, they might be used as penal battalions.

Also, there have been military courses for Germans in' the USSR, since dorld War II, lasting for six months or a year, and students study i ussi
