ly , heavy bomliardment,. continuing for two. hours. .When the
' helling ceased," three battalions of Germans charged through the
shattered defenses, forcing their way into the trenclje. .
' ; There was furious hand-to-hand, fighting, in which the Gcr
1 'mans were driven back and finally repulsed, leaving many. dead in
the' "'American positions. The American losses were correspond -ingiy
heavy, but there is a feeling of elation in the American ranks
'.; that they have finally met the picked, shock troops of the Kaiser
,'dnJ defdated them against odds.
