Tensions remain at a high level between East and West and both Warsaw Pact and NATO forces are being mobilised - NATO stresses that they are mobilising American, British, Dutch and West German units as a precautionary measure in response to Soviet aggression.
NATO has also detected increased levels of Warsaw Pact military communications to front line units and photographic reconnaissance reports show Soviet tank and infantry formations being moved closer to the East German Border.
Communications has also been intercepted and deciphered revealing the following Warsaw Pact command structure;

NATO communication intercepts have established that Warsaw Pact forces are planning to launch a strike on Western Europe at any time soon.
Warpac HQ plans for its "Operation Tempest" are well advanced and their forces continue to build up at an alarming rate - the objective for the communist forces in the North appears to be the deep water container port of Bremerhaven in Lower Saxony.
Likely avenues of approach have been identified and NATO forces are being quickly moved into the area. Dutch and West German forces will form the initial defensive screen with British and American forces reinforcing as the battle develops. NATO has requested a USMC detachment be sent to .Bremerhaven but it is uncertain as to when this is likely to arrive.
Bremerhaven must be held at all costs to prevent Warpac forces having direct access to the North Sea.
