Captain von lleerfolde. who was re

who for mysterious reason has been

"The Reichstag must decide that

"for they were guilty of the most

criminals. I also demand the arrest

Australians made an early morning

the Bray-to-Corhle road on the tongue

hour after mtdnlitht and two lines of
trenches were captured between the vil

on a frontage of 4000 yards to a depth
of some fiOO yards
The captures reported numbered two
oftlcers and ninety men and five ma

were slight.
The movement is important as one of
a series by which the Australian com

the German lines on the Somme nnd
so removing the danger of a further

"I'"och can say he willed something
great, that he devised a simple and clear
plan, thnt he made his preparations ex
cellently, nnd that his relume was clev
erly executed," declarers the Frankfurter
Celtnng. It riuallflea Its frankness by
saying that ho underestimated the Ger
man Httensth nnd asked his troops, on
the whole, to perform the Impossible.
Such a (nullification rather falls to the
ground In the face of the fact of n con
tinued German retreat, but the paper
goes on to pay the enemy still further
tribute by saying that "never before has
the strategy of the western Powers been
so united and coolheaded ns during the
last few weeks." nnd It frankly admires
tho way In which Fneh. while concerned
with the German offensive, gathered "at
least fifty-two divisions together for an
nttnrk. did everything necessary to ex
ercise nnd place his fighting troop? nnd
then began his offensive nt essential
Tho writer thinks Illndenhurg will
give tip still more ground In order to
save his men, nnd concludes: "Every
body feels thnt In these weeks we are
fighting for the success of our whole
campaign of nttnek."
The military critic of the Krouz fi
tting appears to despair ot tho German
capacity for an offensive In the near fu
ture. "Just as we have," he save, "weakened
the enemy by losses by offensive action
up to the present, so It will now be our
task to do that by means of defensive"
On that point the wnr cnrrepondent of
iVorwaerts. having pointed out the
I soiitcis of man-power nt the disposal of
I the wptern Powers, says: "It is false to
'talk of any effective weakening of the
fighting power of the French armv."
1 All that can scarcely he pleasant
i reading for the fatherland, so thoroughly
schooled of late In the belief that Foch
, was no master of war as compared with
Hlndenburg nnd I.udendorff : that the
German commanders had the Initiative
firmly in their grip, nnd that the Gntente I

The more tho German armies' re
treat nnd all Its attendant circum
stances are studied here the more ap
parent becomes to French opinion th
extent of the disaster which has be
fallen tho aorman armies. Koch's
blow on tho encmy'H exposed right
flank between Solssons and the Mnrne,
It Is now clear, not only brought about
the immediate defeat of tho enemy
which we are witnessing, hut also
brought to naught tho whole grandl
oo nnd hitherto successful Herman
plans, which have been In tho courso
of development for moro than two
These plans were laid on a colossal,
scale and can only be appreciated If
we detach ourselves for tho moment
from tho Immediate evontx and look
at the last year of war moro or less
from n philosophical point of vlow,
Tho German plans, which have just
riccn shattered, undoubtedly began to
bo put Into operation with Hlndcn
burg's great sti!itclc lotteat of two
years ago. At that juncture the Ger
mans found themselves nt a standstill
In the west, fnced with an enormous
and well-equipped llrltlih army. That
army, supported ns It was by the
French, threatened ot that time, if
no other events Intervened, to nttnek
the whole German front facing It be
tween tho North Sea nnd the British
Junction with the French armies.
Germans I'eared A Murk
But tho Germans, even better than
wo. realized that In a straight fight on
that front, as things then were, there
was everv possibility of a crushing Brit
ish victory. It was In tho face .of such
a possibility that Hlndenburg drew up
tho grent plan which the Germans have
been putting Into force ever since.
The first stage In the operation of
this plan was his great strategic retreat
across a wide belt of country In the ex
ceptionally strong defensive positions In
this rear. This retreat, It mnv now be
admitted, completely upset the Allied
plans for n general offensive, which had
been maturing for many months.
It was Impossible for the Allies on
their new front, with such a broad belt
of devastated country all around them,
nnd with no railway, roatts, water sup
ply, timber, etc., to be In position to
take tho offensive afresh without many
months of pteparatlon.
Their Plan Fur-reaelilng
But delaying tho Allies was a mere
secondary, although tho more Immedi
ately pressing, feature of the plan. The
Germans realized keenly that, heavily
involved as they weie on the whole
eastern front, they must dispose of Bus
sla, nnd, if possible. Italy as well, be
fore they could think of seriously tack
ling the British nnd French on the
With the two eliminated, Germany
would he free to throw all her forces
on tho western front, first against
Franco and then ngalnnt the British, be
fore the Americans would have tlmo to
como In.
Illndenburg's retreat two years ago,
which puzzled many people and led to
so much controversy, had all these fac
tors for a foundation. Up to a fortnight
ago this plan had been carried virtually
in Its entirety Hussin had been elimi
nated from tho struggle, for the time
being at any rate. The same thing may
be said, to a certain extent, as regards
Italv for the great Austrian drive of a

that German assistance became to a
great extent unnecessary to enable the
Austrian to at least hold the Italians,
ft events have proved.
nrlMsh and French fir.it
There remained the French and the
British. The German drive from St.
Quentln against the British on March
21, wo can now see clearly, was only
preparatory to what tho enemy hoped
would be a final blow at the French.
It proved sufficiently successful to
render the British Incnpablo for the
moment of a real offensive action nnd
left the enemy more t.r les? a free hand
ns the German- command nssumed to
deal with the French.
Tho German offensive In April (which
was a mere diversion only), In May,
June nnd July, followed. The three
last named were directed solely against
the French, and should, according to
the Information In the possepplon tf the
German general staff, have proved en
tirely successful.
It Is exactly on this question of In
formation that tho Germans proved to
be woefully mlstnken. Their Intelligence
service convinced them that the French
had only a broken nrmy. thnt their re
serves had been used up nnd that neither
thn French nr.r tho British were in a
position to react effectively.
It. Is the custom nmonir the Allies to
regard the German Intelligence service
as super efficient and our own ns
mediocre In character. For the time
being silence Is Imposed, but future
years may show to what extent the Ger
man defeat we are now witnessing has
been due to the obscure nnd thankless,
hut devoted, tireless and magnificently
clever work of the British and irencn
