The mighty stroke, launched with immense numbers and
aimed with incredible fury, failed as it failed on past days.
The Germans are once more in their trenches, after giving
ground slightly between the Oise and the sjbmme. They lost
prisoners, Hags and guns and the spirit of the allied troops
is as unbroken as their ranks.
At the centre, near Iiheims. the Germans launched a de
termined blow at the allies, but were thrown back near t lie
fort of Xogent l'Abbesse. Further eastward, toward the Ar
gonnc, they gained ground but were obliged to surrender it.
