STRATEGY RETREAT BOOMER
ANG FOR GEN. HINDENBERG.
With French Armies in the Field,
April 21. French out-Hindenburged
Hindenburg in their great offensive.
It was same strategic superiority
that enabled French to force Ger
mans acceptance of ground previous
ly chosen by French as site of battle
of Marne. In same fashion French
forced Germans to accept site of the
present battle of Aisne ' on ground
carefully selected by the French
strategists from Soissons to Aube
rive. Hindenburg's ::strategic retreat"
was for purpose of forcing French to
accept battle on ground which Ger
man staff had chosen before Hinden
burg line. That strategy has now
failed. French did not choose Hiad
enburg's line as main point of their
offensive.
Likewise all wanton destruction in
pathway of German retreat, all-'raz-ingoftrees,
farms and villages, done
to interfere with allies' advance, has
now proved utterly useless as mili
tary step- and completely unjustifi
able. Battle of Aisne is in its sixth day.
It will likely continue for weeks be
fore decisive moment is reached, ac
cording to general impression among
strategists at front.
