MAGNIN WINS BRILLIANT
N VICTORY AND SMASHES
GERMAN PALN OF ATTACK
NKW VdRK. Annual 21 (Associated Press) The sweeping
advance of the French Tenth Army n the Oise-Aisne front.
between Ribecourt and' Soissons, which began on Monday, is now!
attaining. proportions that rpark this Ixattle as one of the big strokes!
I denefBl l och, a blow against the Germans that seem certain '
to force a wide realignment of their forces both on the Vcsle front i ,
an in the Nov on salient.
Yesterday the advance averaged nearly three miles along a fif
teen mile front, made in the face of heavy German resistance at
all the vital points. I'p to four o'clock yesterday afternoon a total,
of eight thousand prisoners had been taken by General Magnin, with i
some guns and hundreds of machine guns and supplies. Along!
sections of the line the German loss in killed was very heavv, the
French advancing over ground strewn with enemy bodies.
l.ast night the French had captured Cuta and the high ground
north of the town, thus giving them the last heights south of the;
Oise. In this region the operations of General Magnin have been:
When the battle was resumed yesterday morning-it was against'
lines heavily reinforced, the Germans having brought up three fresh' ,
divisions during the night. According to officers among the pris-jl

been broken and thrown back, a heavy counter was to have been :
Instead of holding the French, however, the German first line:
itself was smashed within half an hour after the French attacked j
atid the Kilus poured through the gaps and over the remaining lines, I
driving the GermatA before them. The French artillery prepara-,
lion, which was the most violent since the opening of the battle,
appears to have thrown the Germans plans into complete confusion. '
The attack is now general along a front from Fontenoy on the!
Aisne to I'imprez on the Oise. During the night the French en-i
tered and held the village of Vassens, north west of Morsain.
the dawn the general advance was resumed and numerous villages
and liamlcts were occupied and passed, including T'lessv lc-Yal, la
lielfontainc, Hlerancourt, Osly'and Courtil, the latter i
two villages being on the Aisne between Fontenoy and Soissons
According to the latest information, General Magnin's line last
night ran through la Quenotierie, Champ de Merlier, Petit Maupas,
cutting Hill loO east of Mesnil and through Valpricz farm, five miles
.northwest of Soissons, with the advance continuing.

nearly five miles, this endangering the Germans north of the Vesle
and the Aisne. leaving them open to a flank attack. It is thought
prohahle that General Magnin's advance will force a withdrawal to
the Chemin des Dames line.

Germans Lost Along Every front
Where Fighting Occurred Yesterday
LONDON, August 21 (Associated Press) The Ger
mans, yesterday, lost at every point at which pressure was
brought to bear by the Allies, with the latter attacking heav
ily along several sectors. Prisoners to the number of more
than nine thousand were taken by the Allies on the various
fronts and heavy casualties were inflicted.
The Germans fell back northwest of Soissons, between the
Aisne and the Somme, along the Arras sector and in ;he Lys
salient.. In the latter withdrawal on the Scarpe and east of
Arras the British have now regained virtually all the ground
as far as the old battle line of December, 1917, while at various
oints the BrUish have narrowed the Lys salient.
With the French holding Beuvraignes, the important town
of Roye is on the eve of falling.
In the Merville sector on the Lys and on the Oise-Aisne
front, th British and French are pressing the retreating Ger
There has been little fighting along the Vesle.
The extent of the various operations now being carried out
by the Franco-British forces indicates that Foch plans a regu

until winter in defending himself, leaving him no opportunity
for the reorganization of his forces for another offensive.
