SETS MARCH 21 AS CRISIS Views American Operations Frier to That Date as Part of Their Train ing Pays Supreme Tribute to Officers and Men. Washington. Dee. B.—Gen. John J. Pershing's amount of his stewardship as commander of the American expe ditionary forces was given to the pub lic Wednesday by Secretary Baker. It is In the form of a preliminary re port to the secretary, covering opera tions np to November 20, after the German collapse. It closes with these words from the leader of the great army In France, expressing his feeling for those who served tinder him: “I pay the supreme tribute to our officers and soldiers of the Une. When I think of their heroism, their patience under hardships, their unflinching spir it of offensive action, I am tilled with emotion which I am unable to express. Their deeds are Immortal and they have earned the eternal gratitude of our country." The report begins with General Pershing's departure for France to paye the way for the army that was to smash German resistance on the Meuse and give vital aid to the allies In forcing Germany to Its knees 19 months later. Crisis on Mareh 21. General Pershing views the encoun ters before March 21 of this year. In which American troops participated as a part of their training, and dismisses them briefly. On that date, however,. the great German offensive was launched and a crucial situation quick ly developed In the allied lines which called for prompt use of the four American divisions that were at the time “equal to any demands of battle action." “The crisis which this offensive de veloped was such,” General Pershing says, “that on March 28 I placed at the disposal of Marshal Foch, who had been agreed upon as commander In chief of the allied armies, all of our forces. At his request the First divi sion was transferred from the Toni sector to a position In reserve at Chau mont en Vexln. “As German superiority In numbers required prompt action, an agreement was reached at the Abbeville confer ence of the allied premiers and com manders and myself on May 2 by which British shipping was to trans port ten American divisions to the British army area. Where they were to be trained and equipped, and addition al British shipping was to be provided for as many divisions as possible for use elsewhere. Men Eager for Test. “On April 26 *the First division had gone Into the line In the Montdldler salient, on the Picardy battle front. Tactics had been suddenly revolution ized to those of open warfare, and our men, confident of the results of their training, were eager for the test. On the morning of May 28 this division attacked the commanding German po sition In Its front, taking with splendid dash the town of Cantlgny and all other objectives, which were organized and held steadfastly against vicious cpunter-attacks and galling artillery lire. “Although local, this brilliant action had an electrical effect, as It demon strated our lighting qualities under extreme battle conditions and also that the enemy’s troops were not altogethet Invincible.” Hold Foe at Chateau Thierry. ' There followed Immediately the Ger man thrust across the Aisne river to ward Paris. He continues: “The Third division, which had just come from Its preliminary training In the trenches, was hurried to the Marne. Its motorized machine-gun battalion preceded the other units and successfully held the bridgehead at the Marne, opposite Chateau Thierry. “The Becond division, In reserve near Montdldler, was sent by motor trucks and other available transport to check the progress of the enemy toward Paris. The division attacked and retook the town and railroad sta tion at Bouresches and sturdily held its ground against the enemy's best guard divisions. “In the battle of Belleau wood, which followed, our men proved their su periority and gained a strong tactical position, with far greater loss to the enemy than to ourselves. On July 1, before the Second was relieved. It cap tured the village of Vaux with splen did precision. Stand Between Paris and Foe. “Meanwhile our Second corps, under SECRETARY OF WAR’S REPORT Says Quntion of Pormanent Reorgan- Iration of Army Haa Boon m a ufTtmQ. Washington. Doc. S.—The question of permanent organisation of the army i... been deferred for consideration after the dose of the peace confer ence. Secretary Baker, In his aanSal report agya this course Is determined 90a since “the military needs of the United States cannot be prudently as- MaJ. Gen. George W. Read, had been organised for the command of our divisions with the British, which were Ijeld back in training areas or as signed to second-line defenses. Five of the ten divisions were withdrawn from the British area in June, three to re lieve divisions In Lorraine and the Vosges and two were sent to the Paris area to join the group of American divisions which stood between the city and any further advance of the enemy in that direction." By that time the great tide of Amer ican troop movements to France was in full swing and the older divisions could be used freely. The Forty-sec ond. In line east of Reims, faced the German assault of July 15 and "held their ground unflinchingly;" on the right flank four companies of the Twenty-eighth division faced "ad vancing waves of German Infantry." and the Third division held the Marne line, opposite Chateau Thierry, against powerful artillery and Infantry attack. Single Regiment Cheeks Enemy. "A single regiment of the Third wrote one of the most brilliant pages in our military annals on this occa sion," Geheral Pershing says. "It pre vented the crossing at certain points on its front while, on either flank, the Germans who had gained a foot ing pressed forward. Our men, firing in three directions, met the German attacks with counter-attacks at criti cal points and succeeded in throwing two German divisions into complete confusion, capturing 000 prisoners." Thus was the stage set for the counter-offensive which. beginning with 'the smashing of the enemy’s Marne salient, brought overwhelming victory to the allies and the United States in the eventful months that have followed. The intimation is strong that General Pershing’s advice helped Marshal Foch to reach his de cision to strike. Counter-Offensive Opens. General Pershing continues: "The great force of the German Chateau Thierry offensive established the deep Marne salient, but the enemy was taking chances, and the vulnera bility of this pocket to attack might be turned to his disadvantage. "Seizing this opportunity to support my conviction, every division with any sort of training was made available for use In a counteroffensive. The place of honor in the thrust toward Soissons on July 18 was given to our First and Second divisions In com pany with chosen French divisions. "Without the usual brief warning of a preliminary bombardment, the massed French and American artillery, firing by the map, laid down its rolling barrage at dawn while the Infantry be gan its charge. The tactical handling of our troops under these trying condi tions was excellent throughout the ac tion. "The enemy brought up large num bers of reserves and made a stubborn defense both with machine guns and artillery, but through five days’ fight ing the First division continued to ad vance until It had gained the heights above Soissons and captured the vil lage of Berzy-le-Sec. "The Second division took Beau Re paire farm and Vlerzy in a very rapid vance and reaohed a position In front of Tigny at the end of its second day. These two divisions captured 7.- 000 prisoners and over 100 pieces of artillery." First American Army Formed. The report describes in some detail the work of completing the reduction of the salient, mentioning the opera tions of the Twenty-sixth, Third, Fourth, Forty-second, Thirty-second, and Twenty-eighth divisions. With the situation on the Marne front thus relieved, General Pershing writes, he could turn to the organization of the First American army and the reduction of the St. Mihlel salient, long pjknned as the Initial purely American enter prise. A troop concentration, aided by gen erous contributions of artillery and air units by the French, began. Involving the movement, mostly at night, of 600,000 men. A sector reaching from Port sur Sellle, east of the Moselle, eastward through St. Mihlel to Verdun and later enlarged to carry It to the edge of the forest of Argonne was taken over, the Second Colonial French, holding the tip of the salient opposite St. Mihlel, and the French Seventeenth corps, on the heights above Verdun, being trans ferred to General Pershing’s command. The combined French, British, and American air forces mobilised for the battle, the report says, was the largest aviation assembly ever engaged on the western front up to that time In a sin gle operation. Battle of Bt. Mihlel. Of the reduction of the St. Mihlel salient General Pershing says: "After four hours’ artillery prepa ration the seven American divisions in the front line advanced at 5 a. m. on September 12, assisted by a limit ed number of tanks manned partly by Americans and partly by the French. "These divisions, accompanied by groups of wire-cutters and others armed with bangalore torpedoes, went through the successive bands of barbed wire that protected the ene sensed nott) that conference shall have determined the future International relations of the world." For temporary purposes, however, Ur. Baker announces that he will lay before congress a plan of reorganisa tion for the regular army, “which shall continue as the nucleus of any future military establishment."

The Second Colonial French corps made the slight advance re quired of it on very difficult ground, and the Fifth corps took Its three ridges and repulsed a counter-attack. “A rapid march brought reserve reg iments of a division of the Fifth corps Into Vigneulles In the early morning, where it linked up with patrols of our Fourth corps, closing the salient and forming a new line west of Thiaueourt to Vigneulles and beyond Fresues-en- Woevre 16,000 Prisoners Taken. “At a cost of only 7,000 casualties, mostly light, we bad taken 10,000 pris oners and 443 guns, a great quantity of material, released the inhabitants of many villages from eueiny domina tion and established our lines in a po sition to threaten Metz. “This signal success of the Ameri can First army in Its tirst offensive was of prime Importance. The allies found they had a formidable army to aid them, and the enemy learned Anal ly that he had one to reckon wltli.” The report shows for the first tuna officially that with this brilliantly exe cuted coup. General Pershing’s men had cleared the way for the great ef fort of the allies and American forces to win a conclusive victory. The American army moved at once toward its crowning achievement, the battle of the Meuse. The general tells a dramatic story of this mighty battle in three distinct phases, beginning on the night of September 27, when Americans quick ly took the places of the French on the thinly held line of this long, quiet sector. The attack opened on Septem ber 26, and the Americans drove through entanglements, across No Man’s Land, to take all the enemy’s first-line positions. Battle of the Mouse. Closing the chapter. General Per shing says: “On November 6 a division of the First corps reached a point on the Mense opposite Sedan, 25 miles from our lines of departure. The strategi cal goal which was our highest hope was gained. We had cut the enemy’s main line of communications, and nothing could save his army from complete disaster. “In all forty enemy divisions had been used against us In the Meuse- Argonne battle. Between September 28 and November 8 we took 26,059 prisoners and 468 guns on this front. “Our divisions engaged were the First, Second, Third, Fourth, Fifth, Twenty-sixth, Twenty-eighth, Twenty ninth, Thirty-second, Thirty-third, Thirty-fifth, Thirty-seventh, Seventy eighth, Beventy-nin|h, Eightieth, Eighty-second, Eighty-ninth, Ninetieth and Ninety-first. “Many of our divisions remained In line for a length of time that re quired nerves of steel, while others were sent In again -after only a few days tt of rest. The First, Fifth, Twen ty-sixth. Forty-second, Seventy-sev • enth. Eightieth, Eighty-ninth and Ninetieth were in the line twice. Although some of the divisions were fighting their first battle, they soon became equal to the best. Other Corps Active. The commander in chief does not lose sight of the divisions operating with French or British armies during this time. He tells of the work of the Second corps, comprising the Twenty-seventh and Thirtieth divisions, in the British assault on the Hlndenburg line where the St. Quentin canal passes through a tunnel. Of the total strength of the expedi tionary force, General Pershing re ports: “There are In Europe altogether, in cluding a regiment and some sanitary units with the Italian army and the organizations at Murmansk, also in cluding these en route from the States, approximately 2,058,347 men, less our losses.’’ First U. 8. Planes in May. “The first airplanes received from home arrived In May, and together we have received 1,379. The first American squadron completely equipped by American production, in cluding airplanes, crossed the German lines on August 7, 1918. “As to tanks, we were compelled to rely upon the French. Here, however, we were less fortunate, for the reason that the French produc tion could barely meet the require ments of their own armies. “It should be fully realized that the French government has always taken a most liberal attitude and has been anxious to give us every possi ble assistance in meeting our deficien cies in these as well as in other respects. Our I dependencies upon France for artillery, aviation and tanks was, of course, due .to the fact that our Industries had not been ex clusively devoted to military produc tion.” Small Things Ones Precious. In the reign of Henry VUI, a needle was so valuable a thing that an Eng lish comedy was written about the loss of one. In the reign of Queen Eliza beth, a pair of gloves were held tA be a fitting gift for the sovereign.
