The recapture of iVjlembray, Coney Le*Cbatcau, and Coucy Le Villo^-all ot which had been cleaned out and destroyed by the retreating enemy—brings tho Allied troops to the foot of the St. dobain heights, on tho retention ot which the present Herman line In the west absolutely depends.

Had we attempted to force the line of the Vesle tactically wo siumld have lost at least 10,000 men andlposslbly three times that nutnbtr. By the blow struck on tho Kolsson plateau however—a blow which in any case was inevitable—the Vesle has been cleared in the operations along the Allelic. By those same operations, some of tile finest divisions of the German army have been prevented from holding up tho British advance and tho llindenburg line thus has been -broken by a battle -nearly 100 miles away from It. Though tho German withdrawal from the Veslo Is the most showy event In this sector, by far the most serious one was their defeat between Torny-Sorny and the Ailette. It is no wonder that their troops were commanded to resist to the last man. since It they are unable to hold the neck of the hill to the south of Vanx­ aillon they will have to withdraw their entire garrison from the Pont •Rouge plateau and fall back to the last ridge from which, tho flank of the Chemin-Dcs-Damcs can be defended.
