PKIS, August ( Associate. 1'rcssV rThc ( icrmans facing the
Allies everywhere from Arras to Sikssons are in tlir peril.
In almost every sector of tlii.s eighty-nile front the WiCn.y lint are
crumbling before the persistent attacks of ttie llritishi . I'rencli and
Americans, notwithstanding the desperate counters attempted time
alter time ly the Germans. , , '
Near Arras the old 1 1 indenbuTR line is how .well oittlUnkeu. with
tlie Canadians pouring through the gap and driving the enemy in
confusion. ,-,.,
Snitli of the Sommc the French have. taken Chaulnes and in
a swift advance along a wide front have thrOMf the Germans back
in a rfmt, capturing their guns and supplies, taking many prisoners
and recapturing forty villages. ; ;1'..yv j ; :, .-,
Xovoii still remains in German hands, hut is certain to fall with
in a few hours, with small chance
ecr escaping death or capture.
n the north the Canadians have taken C roisilles aud have
inllicted terrific losses upon the fleeing enemy. On tin:: south hank
l the Sommc the Australians are within four miles of Pennine and
are fighting their way forward to seise the crossing1 of the river,
where the Germans arc streaming east in, dill retreat.
The greatest gains of the day. were made by the French army,
under General de Reney. This army captured Chaulnes on Tues
day night in the course of an advance along a front from Fay to
nei r Lasstgny, a swift drive carrying them forward in some places'
to a depth of six miles. Kvcry where the German defense broke and j
by early yesterday morning the Germans were in full retreat for,
the Sotnmc and the Canal du Nord."",The French took Omiccourt,!
Cressy. Ualatre, Champien, Roiglise' and more than a score other'
villages. I
This morning the French cavalry'is close to'Nesle and is every
where uhii the German heels. The French infantry has reached
the left bank of the Somme between N'esle and Falvy as well as the
west bank of the Canal du Xorcl between Nesle and Xoyons and
has seized the canal along the greater part of its course.
The German retreat along this front thas been more rapid than
the retreat was north of the Avre. Guns and supplies were aban
doned and the French shelled the retreating columns heavily with
thousands of "mustard gas" shells, abandoned by the Germans and
tired from captured German guns.
( n the left of this victorious French army the Australians added
to their gains yesterday, advancing in line with the poitus and
sweeping up a sector in the direction of I'eronne. Last night they
had reached a front running' from Fresncs to llerbccourt, within
four miles of I'eronne in places, but were meeting with much oppo
sition to their efforts to cross the Somnie at Hois and I'eronne.
Fast of Arras the old llindenburg line has been well Hanked
ami to the southeast of that city and cast of Croisilles the losses
inllicted upon the shattered enemy have been scry heavy. The Fri
tish guns hac been brought up back of Croisilles and their shells
hae hit the retreating enemy in many places. Particularly in the
neighborhood of llcndecourt, teu miles southeast of Arras and about
"two miles east of Croisilles, the gunners hail the opportuuitv of
seeing where every shot landed and the enemy artillery position
offered line targets Shells in showers were rained upon and into
the lleeiiig columns of the foe and great gaps, cut into the ranks,
marked the hits which the gunners scored.
It i- impossible to say how mans prisoners were tal.cn in this
sector but one corps took more than 2000.
The official report issued by British headipiarters last night
s.ml "( in both sides of the Somnie liard fighting continued through
out the day. ) 1 1 r forces launched fresh attacks, wresting iroin a
desperately resisting foe additional valuable stretches and many
more advantageous positions including Croisilles.
