Nauru is a German-controlled island in the Pacific. Although small, the island is a major producer of phosphates. Perhaps because of its size and remoteness, Nauru has not been troubled since the start of the war, but now the Australians remember its existence. An Australian naval force lands and adds Nauru to the list of Germany’s Pacific possessions that have been gobbled up by the Allies. The German authorities on the island appear not to put up any resistance.
