re Ftance-The great job of sanitary'
eqgbneeeinu in this war is being ear
rigd oft slowly, but with relentless
eartainty. It probably never occurred
ts a beholder. watching the great
steams dredges of Col Goethals scoop
out the Panama Canal, to wonder
et the job would ever be finiahed.
Hew long it would take to dig the
canal no man knew, but that It would
be dug, nobody doubted. That IL the
way I feel whenever I see the British
military machine at work.
Through the courtesy of the British
staf I have recently spent some days
heecting the battle front along the
whole mne where active fighting has
been in progress this year. The un
satisfactory military situation in Rus
hich ban helped the German
e upon this front, has been
seepon-ihs for pessimism in London of
late. Out here, the men who are doing
the ighting are optimistic. It has not
always been so; I left an optimistic
Lendes in the spring of 1916 and found
the front not pessimistic but grimly
aware of the long and uphill road
ahead. It was the same in the midst
at the battle of the Somme. but In
the winter, where fighting had died
down. I found the front more "bucked
op" than ever before. And now, the
fat is confident that the Germans
have shot their bolt.
- Lndo guesses, but the front knows.
That is why these alternations of

ikpertant. But the back keeps mur

doubt the German losses are heavy.
too, but we are not gaining much
ground. We read of bitter fighting
lasting for weeks in the ruins of some
insignificant village. What ag Lille
and Lens and St. Quentin? When are
we going to reach the Meuse, let
alert the Bhine?
Not even three years of war have
taught the people who say these things
to-think as the soldiers think. The
soldier brushes aside all such talk as
Irrelevant. His job, he knows. Is to
beat the German army. When that
has been done the war will be over.
Movement as measured on a map does
not interest him at all except as it
helps to kill Germans. He complains
bitterly, when he has time to consider
public opinion, that civilians cannot
think of fighting except In terms of
geography, of advance and retirement.
which, until the final "break through"
comea. if it does come, are relatively
seerecy of War.
In attempting to sum up the situa
tion on the Western front this sum
mer as the soldiers see it. a reporter
is at once faced with the factors that
have misted opinion everywhere. Civil
ians have maps. Progress upon a
map can be visualized by anyone. All
infantry fighting results from. an at
tempt by soldiers of one side to reach
a point on the map held by the enemy.
The success or failure of these at
tepts is at once announced in the bul
It is movement. and movement alone
by which the public judges fighting,
because it is not allowed to know
anything else. Each side keeps its
own losses secret, and can only guess
at those of the enemy. Neither side
tells the world how many shells it
fired in an action, how many of its
guns were worn out. Yet these things
are often, Indeed usually, of very
much more importance than the loss
or . capture of a village like Fresnoy
or Bullecourt. It may possibly come
about at a later stage of the war that.
the winning of a certain strip of
ground will decide the fate of an
army. Most scldiers do not think so.
and they all agree that this is not
The best way to appreciate the pro
gress of the war in France, it has
been impressed on me again and
again, is to forget the map. There
are on the Franco-British front a cer
tain number of British and French
divisions. Opposed to them are 143 or
144 German divisions. The object of
the allies is to go on fighting, under
the most advantageous conditions pos
sible, until the 141 German divisions
plus all the reserves and units from
other fronts that may he brought
up, are so smashed that they can
no longer take the punishment. Then,
and then only, will come the "break
through" so much talked about, but
victory will not come this year; It
may not be possible at all without the
help of great American armies.
The great progress toward the final
goal that has been made during the
earlier stages of the 1917 campaign
by the French and British armies.
must be measured not by liberated
towns, but by ti e losses suffered by
those 144 German divisions. It is pos
sible to give approximate figures
showing what the German soldiers
have had to endure, and are enduring
When the campaign opened in March
the trench lines from Switzerland to
the sea were manned by about 100
German divisions, while grouped in
the rear as i strategic reserve were
44 divisions which Hindenburg hoped
to use in an offensive which was to
regain the initiative for Germany aft
er the March retreat had disorgan
ised the allied plans. The pursuit
was more rapid that the Germans
thought possible, the British blow at
at the Vimy ridge came three weeks
before it was expected, and the old
marshal's plan were glimmering. He
had to stand and fight on the defen
sive, abandoning his strategic scheme,
German Divisems Redueed.
The German divisions are now only
three-quarters their former strength,
and consist, as a rule, of nine battal
ions instead of twelve; which means
00W bayonets to the dIvision If each
battalion is at full strength, but In
practice not more than 7.500 bayonets
to an average division.
In the firat six weeks of fighting thIs
yeer, ninety-two German divisions
were sent In against the British In
the Arras battles and against thel
French on the Atane and in Cham
pagne. Of these divisions, twenty
seven wese so shattered that they had
to be withdrawn, and later appeared
again, thieir gaps relilled with re
serves. Several have come back for
the third time. In six weeks, there
fore. moly forty-seven of the German
divisions garrisoning the Western
front had not been dragged into the
great "suction actions." The figure4
for the latest fighting are not obtain

Daring the .entire battle of the

ninety separate German divIsions were

Sea the real cause of the optimism at
the front. Heavy as are the allied
lopies, the attrition process is not
operating to the mmrte extent on both
sides. There are several factors at
work this year that are weighing
down the balance heavily against the
m"as..e Against Ger-anas.
First comes the allied superiority
In the air. This Is Indisputable, and
manifest to the most casual observer.
On clear days, I have seen dosens of
British aeroplanes bussing over Ger
man lines; to catch sight of an ene
my plane on our side is now an event.
and an exciting event, because the
venturesome intruder is sure to be
fighting an angry swarm of-British
or French wasps. Sometimes the
Germans send squadrons of high
speed scouts scuttling along three
miles Into the air, but at these great
altitudes observation even with Ger
man lenses is not of the best. The
only German squadron I saw myself
during several days of perfect observ
Ing weather was engaged, at an enor
mous height, in a struggle with five
or six British planes. There are hun
dreds of good German aeroplanes, with
first-class pilots, but so relentless is
the allied serial offensive that Lacy
are compelled to remain behind their
own lines on an almost continuous
defensive, and It is over German
territory under the protecting fire
of G an archies that nineteen fights
out twenty now take place.
The results of this situation would
be manifest in the casualty lists even
If the guns and shells on eacn side
were equal. The Germans are com
pelled to "shoot off the map" where
they have not direct observation over
the enemy lines from some Li.her
grounds; that is, their gunners must
fire at roads whose range can be cal
culated or at places where they mere
ly guess allied guns are placed. in the
absence of air photography ta snow
them what to shoot at, or of "spot
ting" planes over the enemy positions
to wireless the results of their nutrks
manship. By taking the Vimy Ridge
and the commanding height at
Monchy, the British early in the Ar
ras fighting deprived the Germans ot
direct observation over tneir commu
nications and were able to watch
miles of the German lires; an in
stance of the real value of winning
ground, not as an ens in itself, but
merely as one of a number of fac
tors which help to give advantage In
observation. A modern general, asked
whether he would prefer :u carry a
hill before him or to retain his aero
plane superiority, would almost invari
ably choose the latter.
British Have Advantage.
Far more enviable is the lot of the
British and French gunners. They,
too, can shot "off the map"- as well
as the enemy, but they are constantly
supplied with areoplane photographs
showing the most minute defensive
works behind the German lines, they
are informed, by aeroplanes which see
the flashes of enemy guns, approxi
mately where to shoot to knock out
batteries, and they are able to cor
rect their ranges after each salvo, on
a clear day, in 'the light of reports
received fiom airmen who have seen
the shells exploded. Add to this the
superiority in direct observation en
joyed by the Bitiah in the Arras
neighborhood since their Initial suc
cess in April, and the strategic suc
cess of Sir Douglas Haig in com
pelling the enemy to stand and fight
under such unfavorable conditions
can be appreciated.
Not only are the German gunners
blinded by reason of allied air suprem
acy, but the enemy is now hopelessly
inferior both in the number of can
non he can bring into action and the
supply of shells he can deliver. The
situation in 1915, when the allied sol
diers had to endure constant shelling
to which their own guns could not
reply, has now been reversed. British
soldiers are genuinely sorry for the
German infantry today, for they re
member what they went through two
years ago, and they know how it feels.
Early in 1916, the cannon and shells
begin piling up on the right side of the
lines, and British staff officers think
that approximately last August, in
the middle of the Somme battles, an
equilibrium was reached and the al
lies and the Germans were about
equal in fire power. Since that time
the allies, thanks in no small degree
to the efforts of America, have been
drawing steadily ahead. There is now
nu comparison; were It possible to
give figures which I have seen, they
would astonish the most optimistic.
The Germans have recently been gamb
ling on a continuance of the lull on
the Russian front by bringing from
the East not only soldiers but guns,
in the hope of temporarily holding
their own in the never-ceasing artil
In the infantry' fighting, the Ger
mans have also been placed under
a terrible disadvantage, quite apart
from the heavier shelling they have
to endure. Thanks to the possession
of the strategical initiative - a
formidable term that simply means
the allies are forcing the fighting and
compelling the Germans to devote all
their energies to defense-the allies
are able to attack when and where
they please. This means that they can
prepare as carefully and as long as
they like for an attack, and, with
good luck, keep the Germans guessing
until It is actually launched as to the
point of impact.
If advantages are won by the at
tack that the Germans cannot afford
to lose, they are compelled to counter
attack to regain the lost positions.
Counter-attacks under these circum
stances are Invariably extremely
costly, They have to be hurriedly im
provised, out of whatever troops are
at hand, and sent forward quickly
without proper planning Or co-ordina
tion, before the assailants have had
time to dig themselves In or re
organize the wrecked German posi
tions,, They immediately come under
then massed fire of cannon secretly
concentrated over a long period for
the very purpose of supporting the
offensive and checking attempted re
actions. The counter-attacking troops
cannot be supported by anything lk-,
a similar weight of guns, If the
original attack came as a surprise.
because It takes time to mess guns,
and counter-attacks must be launched
at once if they are to succeed.
Methed et Campaiga.
These considerations explain most of
the fighting of the past two months,
The British use their possession of
the initiative to launch an attack on
a narrow front, They capture a po
sition, The Germans are forced, by

Two years ago, Hindenburg is re

army has a brilliant present bit no

the present is no longer brilliant, and
the future more a minus quantity than I
ever. In all calculations as to com-. t
ing campaigns, both here and doubt- c
less on the enemy front as well, the
presence of an American army in I

that it will be formed and used, if the c
French and British armies are not 1
able to finish the job themselves, is I
taken for granted.
"The whole situation Is as simple as I
a problem in addition and subtrac
tion," a distinguished soldier said to
me. "The enemy knows his own I
losses and his own reserves and his?
own munition power exactly, and he c
can make a reasonably good guess as -
to ours. We know our own exactly,
and we can make a fairly accurate
estimate of his. If we got together
with the Boche, and we both told the
truth, we should .probably agree that
there was once a chance that the Ger
man armies could tire us all out and
get a draw. A email chance, perhaps,
but still a chance. But we should
agree that that chance went over
board when the United States passed c
a cor.scriptlon bill and decided to send t
an army over here. From a military
point of view, the Boche is doomed,
and he most certainly knows It. t
"The Boche is not a fool. He is not
going on killing his men and ruining
his country for nothing. He knows I

must be that he thinks we are all get
ting tired of the war, so he may hope
to bedevil our labor parties or our
weaker politicians into a peace made
up of pretty phrases and pious aspira

is the meaning of all these Stockholnm

a soldier, but I think If the politicians
and the public generally had a clear
notion of the military situation, saw
the thing as it is instead of regarding
our front as deadlocked, they could
understand the German political
