After'-continuous engagement, which lasted nearly two day.s, the Germans forced -the French to yield, in front of .Vreany, to the east of Croury. .It is explained by the French war''oJrice that' the flooding of the river Aisne lestroyed several oL the lines and thus rendered precarious'th^ commun-'.cations qf the troops operating on the right bank. There the troops were withdrawn, as it was thought impossible to send reinforcements' to their support. "The success is a partial one, far our adversaries,"  says !the French statement, "but will have no influence 'on the operations as whole; Emperor William, himself was pre."!-ent at these operations, which resulted in the capture of several thousand French prisoners, and were continued throughout January 12 and 13.
