Object of GermHns "It was quite clear from the events now Bolng on In the went that the object of the Germuns was. to overcome one fraction of the forces opposed to them in the belief that It these forces were knocked out the others must give in and a German peace must be the result. It was for this reason that they had concentrated their effort a In front o( the British army. "Waa that military calculation going to succeed? (Cries of "No. No"). There were many reasons why It �hould not. Perhaps the most Important was becauao the higher German command were determined that this land atruggle ahould come to an end before the United States could bring its forces to bear upon the wesieni front "The Germans had made mtiny false calculations In the course of the war. One was when they tUuutfht that the first passing would bring them to Parts; but it only brought them to the Atarne Another was that tbey thought nothing would Induce Aiuer-Ktt oither to break oft diplomatic re-lailons with tbem or enter the war. "Another misculculutlon was when they not only boosted but believed that a few months of unvestrlctud submarine warfare would destroy the re-alatauce of Great Drltuiu. 'These were miscalculations from which the Germans were stilt suffering and from which they would suffer until peace came to the world.
