GENEBAi PERSHING KEPOET8
'oiiiiiiiiiiicues telling of the earlier fighting have been received from Ueneral
Pershing. Of July 14 he said:
' ' Kast of Chateau Thierry, where the enemy succeeded this morning in
.Missing the Murne on our front aud gaining some ground, our counterattack
drove back the enemy to tho Marne and we took 5(H) prisoners. In the Vosges
live trench raids attempted by the enemy broke down nnder our fire."
Kor July 11, be said: "American troops oast of Kheims cooperated with
the French in repulsing an enemy attack. We maintained all positions and cup-
lured prisoners and machine guns. Yesterday iu the Vosgos the enemy attempt I
ed ru attack on our lines on a front of 1000 yards. The attack broke down under
our artillery fire. Au American counterattack on July 15 was a complete sin
cess. The enemy was thrown back near Fossov with severe losses. One bat
talion was practically annihilated.
"The ofli.-ers commanding the Freuih troops near this point, as well as
liters belonging to the high command, expressed great satisfaction concerning
ihe conduct of our forces and the' result they achieved."
