Aerial Torpedoes
Surprise Teutons.
BERLIN, July 7, (via London
July 8j An eyewitnessaccount
of tlie Anglo French offensive
is given in despatches from
Lieutenant Dambitsch, one of
the editors of the Zeitung am
Mittag, whose company was
stationed in the trenches near
tlie Somma Rivei,
The Lieutenant was tvounded
during the preparatory bom-
bardment, hut was then.' long
enough to witness tlie almost
indescribable destruction wrou
ght in the front line trenches
by the artillery. He says that
the massively built positions
had been regarded as virtually
in lestructible and impregnable
but the event proved that the
progress in the development of
offensive tactics since the Sep
tomhei offensive had not been
realized.
"Right at the beginning of
the artillery preparation/'sayi
the Lieutenant, "the enemy
showed the Germans a new
thing in the destruction of ob
ervation balloons. An aviator
wooped down on one of these
and shot lire halls from above,
a burst of flame marking the
end nf the balloon.
"The second da\'s bombard
ment, June 2d, brought another
surprise in the shape of aerial
mines of unheard >f calibres,
which were thrown in incredi-
ble numbers. The explosion of
the first air torpedo shattered
by its tremendous detonation
the windows of the bomb proofs
a'>'',4tlirew up a massive pillar
<^_j' ck earth perhaps a hun
(.red yards. This showered tlie
whole neighborhood with roofs,
bricks, and earth. This was n
regular Vesuvius eruption.
The destructive effects of this
uninterrupted throwing of the
heaviest mini s w ere a Inn st im
mediately visible. The end.
to two bombpn ofs were bin K d
and the inmates had to be ri
' mow (I "
A lew minutes later an or-
derly, sent with a message to
the left "f a company, returned,
reporting that the trench bad
been completely leveled. Lieu-
tenant Dambitch, going to ob
serve, saw as far as the eye
could reach crater aft) r crater 6
ft dep the earth between being
torn up in a wild, high chaos of
trench timbers and wire en
tanglemenis.
"The work of day and night
for nine months," says the
chronicler, "was destroyed in a
few minutes. Report after re
port arrived df bombproofs de
molished by aerial torpedoes,
burying tlie inmates. The
trenches became rapidly level
ed; communication between
the sections was difficult. The
third lines were so heavily
shelled that it was impossible
to traverse them. An orderelv
sent to a captain was hours un-
der way. On the left flank the
company trench was so obliter
ated that it was difficult to
trace it. Theonlv means of pro
press was to dash from crater to
crater fully exprsed to the ene-
my fire while crossing the in-
tervening ridges. Finally he ar-
rived after a period of intence
danger and found the left pla
toon of the company in the
same condition as the right.
A number of men were still
buried in the demolished bomb
proofs. Their comrades worked
for hours extricating them.
"During this work an in
