JT ONDON, September 3-r-( Associated Press) The greatest defeat ever inflicted upon the Germans in any one day was administered yesterday by General Haig, who literal
J ly smashed the .German lines along a thirty mile front; capturing thousands, killing more thousands, and driving so' tar ahead in places as to make it practically certain that
the old Hindenburg line, with all its elaborate system of defense, now offers no refuge for the beaten armies of von Ludendorff.
In the north, along a wide front the Germans are falling back panic stricken, with British tanks and armored cars cutting through the ranks, with hosts of allied airmen
bombing and spraying the retreating divisions with machine gun fire, with tank detachments sweeping in behind the Germann and seizing the bridges along the avenues of re
treat. V '""
The Hindenburg line is now hopelessly butflanked on the north, while the French are rapidly approaching the southern base of the line and the Franco-Americans are driv
ing eastward from the Soissons front and threatening to outflank the Huns at Laon. C2
From the appearance of the general situation last night ftseems certain that the Germans will have to realign their positions all the way from Rheims to the Flemish bor
der and possibly almost to the Nprth Sea. ; f"
The southern. portion of the Drocourt-Queant line, known to the Germans as the Wotan line, is completely smashed along ten miles, from the Scarpe to Queant, with
British and Canadians three miles past it and still advancing. ' Here the Germans are falling back in tangled confusion, with so many surrendering that the number of prisoners
is embarrassing tne Driusn advance.
har in advance of the infantry are large numbers of tanks the greater number beincr fast machines, while accompanying these are motor machine gun batteries. These
In the Lys salient the British-American forces are beating the Germans wherever they make a stand ,and advancing closely on their heels along those portions of the line
.have reached the Canal du Nord in large numbers and seized the bridgeheads. Others have advanced through the fleeing lines of Germans to the Douai-Marquion road and
have taken up positions along the rear ot the Uermans, holding them while the oncoming Allies drive the beaten regiments into added confusion.
On the south the British are gradually approaching the Hindenburg line, recapturing several important points during the day and driving the Germans at all points.
