American On the West tern front since March 21st the Allies have met four great enemy attacks with purely defensive They have been content to lose xground and to hold the Germans firmly at the maximum point ot advance rather than incur heavy casualties In recap turing the territory overrun by There seems scarcely any reason to doubt that in the battle of the Flan ders ridges at the end of and in the last phase of the battle of the Oise early in the present the Allied troops available for use could have recovered a large part of the ground fought over upon these occa The men engaged must have been keenly desirous of doing and only the strong will of the commander expressed fn definite orders Ithe Allied army could have held them strictly to the defen sive save for one day of vigorous counterattacking along the when the enemy came too close to The Italians can have no quarrel with General Foch if he follows In Italy the same prudent course so consistently pursued in France of holding the line with the slightest possible taking heavy toll of the enemy for every foot of ground Insists upon and leaving time to secure for the Allied armies through the arrival of American rein numerical superior ity that was lost when Russia and Roumania retired the It had been supposed generally that this policy must involve the postpone ment of Allied offensive on a great scale till the summer or early fall of 1919 and the continuation of hostilities That view may be modified In face of the offi cial statements appearing from week to week as to the apeeding up of the transportation of American troops to At the present rate of ship ment there will be at least a million and a half Americans in France by the first and a million of them will be Infantry of firstline A winter in the trenches will harden these men sufficiently to enable them by March or April of 1919 to become part ofthe Allied army which will try with the Germans in Aha open In that army Foch evidently hopes to
