Even when things are going our
way, it is not wise to underestimate
the enemy. We have not overpraised
our own men and their allies for their
splendid work in the Aisne-Marne
counter offensive, but most of us
have thought and talked about the
Germans in a manner which hasn't
been just to them nor safe for us.
The Germans have done just what we
praised so highly in the Allies last
March they have lost ground, men
and material, but preserved their
army intact. Briefly, at the beginning
of their offensive, they attacked, ex expecting
pecting expecting to gain another and possibly
decisive lap on the road to Paris, and
cut off northeast France. On the
third or fourth day, they found they
could make no gains on the front,
while they: flanks were in danger.
Whereupon they began drawing out
of the dangerous salient and since
have retreated north .at the rate of
not more than a mile a day. They
have suffered heavily, but so far
from being demoralized they have
ought stubbornly and skillfully, and
their army has never been in danger
of capture. They have not lost as
heavily a3 the British lost when the
first German offensive broke their
ine and they have not lost as many
men in proportion as they did when
the British broke their second offen
sive in front of Ypres in April. The
main difference between the German
offensive and the Allied counter counter-offensive
offensive counter-offensive is that the Germans always
had the greater numbers. The Allies
are winning the second Aisne-Marne
campaign by better 'generalship and
better position. They had the Ger
mans in a trap, but they did not have
he force to close the trap. Had they
possessed the numerical superiority
of the Germans and been as reckless
of life, they would have captured or
destroyed the crown prince's army.
As it is, they have done a great deal
more than any German army has ever
done under the same circumstances.

The brasses shone like gold, and a

to define what waste is. One man's waste may be another man's
