Vigorous Fighting In West
London Attacking all along the western front from Armentierre.
to the Argonne district, the British and French yesterday began a con
centrated offensive in many places. The Germans were driven from
numerous trenches, losing heavily in men and material. Lines were
penetrated and bent so seriously in a nunibei of sections that retire
ment on the right and left wings is probable.
For four days previous to Friday, the artillery of the French and
British pounded the German lines, tearing away barbed wire entangle
ments, scattering trench ramparts, silencing batteries and generally
paying the way for a great infantry advance that had been planned.
Early Saturday morning various advances began and regiments
were driven against shattered German positions in a large number of
selected places, In every section where attacks were made in earnest
these drives carried home. The slaughter was terrible, being heavier
on the side of the Germans, who kept falling back before the onslaught
of the Allies, flushed with victory and leaping to the charge with a
fury that could not be withstood.
12,000 Prisoners Taken
While the British have driven their advance almost to the gates
of Lille and threaten a section of the German lines, the greatest gains
have been made by the French, who advanced in one section in Cham
pagne district for two and a half miles along a fourteen-mile front,
taking 12,000 unwounded prisoners, and large quantities of guns, am
munition and supplies.
Ihe advance continues, The Germans are eifecting a Hurried re
treat, with their heavy artillery.
Ihe French have gained further to the cast so effectively that any
continued pressure will make the position of the German Crown Prince
before Verdun untenable and a general retirement to Metz necessary,
20,000 More Prisoners
On the western front, between Arras and La Basse canal, the
British and French captured 20,000 prisoners and many guns.
100,000 Killed And Wounded
The German killed and wounded in this section is reported to run
excess of 100,000 men,
Fighting was hand to hand, with hand grenades and with ma
chine guns at close quarters until the Germans broke from their ad
vance trenches in precipitate retreat.

and material on the west front. One division, says the report given
