They contend the line was en-: tireiy too near the point where the i Austro-Germajj troops had broken I through the Italian front.- The experience ot,the French at the Marne is held to prove that there is an advantage in not stopping a retreat too soon, if a commander wishes to strike a decisive blow. The real successful Italian deten sive in the opinion of the French experts, will be based upon the historl cal quadrilaterial "Mantua Verona. Peschera and Lugatfo," and the real battle ot the campaign will occur when the Italian armies, supported by the French and British troops will defln-itcly bar the German invaders on these lines. The French general staff ^m^ade almost instantaneous response to the Italian appeal for help. Once the decision was reached to co-operate with the Italian army, the French troop trains began rolling towards the Alps. There was no improvisation in their functions; the plans were the result, of careful study and preparation and the general staff had conceived beforehand the whole scheme of transportation.
