ON TWENTY- T WO
MILE LINE FMENm
,. AND BRITISH GAIN
' 1 , .
NI'AV Y(KK September V- (Associated l,ri-s1 I'.rilisli and
French veterans made another vicious, successful smash against
the llindenburg line yesterday, sweeping forward their front fr
twenty two miles from one and a half to three miles into the Ger
man defense system. At places the 1 lindcnhurg line was (dotted
out, while along the greater part of this twenty two mile advance
the Allies nrfve reached their old positions, held when the Germans
launched their great offensive on March 21. I
ST. QUENTIN FALL NEAR
Many prisoners were taken, the British capturing more than
six thousand and the French taking many more, while the defenses
of St. Quentin are so crumbled that the early capture of that but
tress of the German defense -line is made more inevitable. The fall
of St. Quentin within a few days may be confidently expected. The
new advance of the British places them at points north of theity
and leaves the fortress in a pocket with the Allies holding three
sides. From the vantage points gained by the French and the British
in their nibbling progress during the past week the two forces struck
yesterday morning along a front of twenty two miles, the British
storming the enemy's line from south of Gozeaucourt to the llolnon
Woods, due west of St. Quentin and about three miles from the city.
The French attack ran from the British right at llolnon along a
curve to Essigny-le-Orand, five miles south of the city.
BRITISH STRIKE IN FORCE
The British struck in heavy
Germans had heavily reinforced this front in anticipation of attack
and with a determination to hold the approaches to St. Quentin.
The attack was entirely successful; the German defenses being pene
trated after heavy fighting and the advance continued until the llin
denburg line was reached at practically every point from St. Quen
tin north along the fighting front, with the British crossing the line i
and occupying the German defenses at Gozeaucourt and at Yilleret,
sorne seven miles north of St. Quentin. The German casualties were
ncavy, six mousana were pnsonerea
funs and trench weapons were taken.
In this sweep over many square miles the British recaptured,
eleven villages and occupied sonic important hiph ground south
of ( inxcaticnurt, points of vantage for a further drive to Hank the
objective city The villages taken are Pontru, Fresnoy-lc-l'ctit,
Hethaucourt, le Vergiiicr, Villeret, Hargicourt. Templeux, le (tucard.
RiMissoy. F.pehy, Peiziere and Gauchewood. The high ground south
of Gozeaucourt has been entirely cleared of Germans and the British
have crossed this and reached the outskirts of Villers-Guislain.
. . . , ' , 1 1
The I-rench advance, which was
sensational than the British, but
of a mile and a third along the entire front being made.
An official communique sent out by 'wireless from I'.erlin lat
tyght admits that the British penetrated the German positions be
tween Hargicourt and the Omignon rivulet, but states that the (let
mans are heavily and successfully counter-attacking. i
On Tuesday night, London announces, the Germans nuide a
heavy artillery attack upon the British in Mocuvres, the British re
tiring under the shelling to the edge of the village.
GERMAN COUNTERS FAIL i
The Germans also launched a particularly hcavv counter olTVn
sivc against General Petain's front on the plateau southeast of Saucy,
seven miles northeast of Soissons, where the French gain are cry
seriously menacing the German positions of the Chemins des Datnc.s.
The lighting was heavy but the French repulsed the enemy and
retarned all their gains.
The German official report concerning this tihtiii"; stall's that
the French made progress against the German positions between
Vauxillon and Allemont on Tuesday, penetrating the German lines
in the direction of Pimm. Here, says the German account, the
French were driven back bv counter blows.
