The general summed up the phy
ical conditions of the battleground
which made the strudle particular
ly trying on the troops. First, he
Mid. there was that terrible strain
of endurance and natural fatigue
accompanying nights and days of
ceai-ele Jihtin? with the relent
less foe. Then there was the ex
treme cold, with the temperature
at night.? at about 14 decrees above
zero, fahrenheit. This extreme cold
was made worse, he said, because
the men were without any kind of
shelter, everything having been
swept away in the terrific artillery
action and the constant uhlftinp of
position.
There were no trenches, or dug
out . which ordinarily give some
.heiter and there was no water from
unfailing sources, such as the sol
diers should have when going
through such an ordeal. They were
on the barren ground of foothills
covered with rocks and stones. Th
ground wa without habitation or
the slightest natural facilities usual
ly required by lighting; troops.
Toll Army Officers Heavy.
After summing up the physical
hardships the general added tnat
there was the still more serious
condition of many command.- being
with very few officers as the con
tinuous lighting had told terribly on
officers. As a result new men were
suddenly called upon to lead large
forces far beyond their experience
and sub-officers as well aa junior
officers were directing superior
commands in many instances.
The general raid there have been
fearful losses among the troops
which required a constant reform
ing of companies, regiments, bri
gades and divisions. Rut with all
these terrible conditions, the gen
eral said the spirit of the men was
unabated in the determination to
hold at any cost.
The rumble of heavy artillery fire
continued throughout the general's
talk, while a dense mist overhead
gave a faint outline of the rising
hills, where one attack was follow
ing another in this fateful lattle.
