Attacking the Germans suddenly on two widely separated sectors, French and British troops have improved their positions greatly and captured 1,400 prisoners. By their enterprise in taking the initiative unexpectedly the Allies apparently caught the Germans napping and realized their objectives in a short time. The British rectified their lines east of Hazenbrouck in Flanders. ' South of the Aisne the French drove the enemy back on the fe'iportant Ambleny-Montgobert sector which bars the open spaces between the forests of Compeigne and Villers-Cotterts. The Sghting here continues. HUNS ACTIVE 03V MEBYELLE SECTOR.
