Lethbridge Daily Herald (Newspaper) - November 5, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 5, 1918 THE LET "IBRIDGE DAILY HERA?j> Germans Admit Line Nearly Broken Through British Headquarters, Nov. G,- (ReuterG.)-The Germans yesterday got the worst hammering that they hnve ever received. It has become a habit of speech to say that the enemy is, still unbroken and unbeaten, but if things continue much longer at the present rate, we will suddenly nwalce to the realisation that this statement has ceased to be true. A series of battles ranlnn. on the west front from Valenciennes to Stenay promise to prove the mout stupendous conflict of the war. It Is 3 mistake to suppose the allies arc only enuaacd with renr-fluardo of the enemy, retreating "accord-Infl to plan." The oopoalle Is true. The GeismariR are beino forced to fiQht their hardest hy attacks which threaten to achieve their strategic collapse and the successes gained by the allies have been won against immense concentrations of Gtrcngth which are striving in a mos.t determined manner to hold vital points. Marshal Foci), adhering to his right anqle front, is steadily reducing the enemy's area of manoeuvre, squeezing him against the surrounding hills from the west, robbing him of mobility In a fash-Ion which is likely to prove dls-nstrous before long. NEARLY A BREAK THROUGH Berlin, Nov. 5.-Formidable attacks In which the French and British used enormous forces of artillery and tanks, were made Monday against the lines on a front of^morc than 40 miles between the Scheldt and the Olse, ?he official statement from German headquarters todiy says. In a h*rd struggle the Germans prevented ?. brenk-throuph. In the Bleulet forest, west of the Mcuse, the statement continues we a\olded stror.y, attacks, bv wifhdravinp in acc.vri^ncc w th orders 'o the east bank of the Mouse, north of Stenay. The town of Lc Ouesnoy, it is Added, was evacuated whrm it was lliientened with encircltmen: south of Catillon, allied troops advancing across the 9ambre-Oise canal, about one mile.
