THE TIMES WEDNESDAY JANUARY 27 1943

MR. CHURCHWILL MEETS MR. ROOSEVELT

TEN DAYS’ CONFERENCE AT CASABLANCA

PLANS FOR THIS YEAR’S OFFENSIVES

“UNCONDITIONAL SURRENDER” FOR THE AXIS

DE GAULLE SEES GIRAUD

Mr. Roosevelt and Mr. Churchill have been in conference since January 14 at Casablanca, where they went by air. They were accompanied by the Chiefs of Staff of the two countries.

The whole field of war was surveyed, and all resources marshalled for the active and concerted execution of the allies’ plans for the offensive campaigns of 1943. Mr. Roosevelt later described the meeting as the “unconditional surrender” meeting, by which he meant that unconditional surrender by the Axis was the only assurance of future world peace.

General de Gaulle and General Giraud also met at Casablanca and discussed plans for unification of the war effort of the French Empire.

TRAPPED STALINGRAD ARMIES LIQUIDATED

40,000 KILLED AND 28,000 TAKEN PRISONER

MOPPING UP ISOLATED GROUPS

The Russians announced last night that they had in the main completed the liquidation of the encircled German forces in the Stalingrad area. Only two small groups, numbering not more than 12,000 men, remain. More than 40,000 German troops have been killed and 28,000 taken prisoner.
