The fact that there are French, British, Belgians, Americans and Portugese fighting on the west front against the supreme efifort of the Germans to break, through has decided the military experts of the allies to place the supreme command in the hands of one man in order that tho proper co-ordination and control of reserves might be effected to the best advantage.
