I pre- sent his narrative as nearly as pos- ible in his own words: 'I left Berlin about a week ago. It may be taken as quite definite that the authorities realize that the war lost. Two facts stand out quite clearly to the German powers. fact is that while Germany still re- tains the power to manufacture muni- tions at a large and formidable rate, the output of the allies is now in ad- vance of the German output, and the significance of this is realized. 'The second point is even more important. It is recognized that tho reserves of man power are not suffi- cient to allow Germany to conduct the ,-ar to a victorious issue. The often- ..ive on the Somme is the thing. They have no illusions about this. They believe they can impede the niliea and hold them back for a long they realize they cannot do it indefinitely. It is privately ac- knowledged that sooner or later the allies must break through. -More than this, the Germans have calculated the limit of time they can effectively withstand the attacks on front-at 12-months.-.They, know, however, the allies .may get wsers eng on God-speed, in spite of the secrecy with crew were saved.
