Well they got good and sore and
bombarded our trenches until they
were battered to pieces, only stopping
to start over and try to take them, but
nothing doing, they went back faster
than they came- and always empty
handed. This lasted for three days.
The French on our left called it the
Little Verdun and said they never

of themselves the way we did, but
they have got to learn that an Ameri

I'll make a littl kahuna. (Isuppose

month. It is said that ever since
France has been at war the French
didn't celebrate their holidays, but
they are going to do it this year. They
won't have any grand affair but they
will certainly drink a lot of wine.
