Proof of. these .conditions' is' con
tained in a general order signed by
Ludendorff, found on a captured pris-.
oner, n.says m part: . '.
"I has been reported to me by Gen
eral Ziethn that at certain points at
the front it is thougbt that the in
fantry ought to be very strongly sup
ported by artillery and that the guns
of the divisions at rest should be
used for this purpose.
"Under no circumstances should
such an idea be ' alowed to circulate.
It is absolute proof that the -infantry
does not yet realize the value, strength
and resources of its machine guns.
"Reports of recent battles show
that the infantry is alone able to com
pletely repulse the assaults of the en
emy if it knows how to make use of
its machine guns by scattering them
ove rthe ground to ' be defended arid
hiding the from the view of the en
emy. "Perhaps it would be well to add
that to use the artillery of the divis
ions at rest would place the artillery,
which has already suffered terribly,
in such a position that it could not
repair its force.
"It is absolutely necessary that the
artillery economize and reserve its
force for future operations."
