New York, N.Y., Sopt. mili- tary expert of The New York Sun, la a masterly summary of the war, fce- lioves thtih tho real resistance of tho German army IIUB been broken. He says: "If on the night of June 18, 1815, Napoleon, having put the Old Guard in and failed, bad been able to extricate his army, take it hack oh the Samhre, call Jn Grouchy's force from Wavre, and stand near tho French frontier, the whole world would today be discussing tho remarkable parallel between the conditions of 1914 and 1815. "For the more one examines the re- cent campaign, stii'l unfinished, the more completely the Waterloo strug- gle comes to mind. To begin, with, tne problem of Napoleon in June, 1S1.5, was precisely tho problem of the Kais- er in August, 1914. In his immediate path in Belgium, one considerable army, Belgian, Prussian, Dutch and English, was on foot ready lor battle. Far off iu the east Austrian, Russian, and Swedish armies T.-cre gathering. In June he could hurl against the aJ- lied army in Belgium .a force superior In numbers, in all that goes tp make up a successful army.- But in July or August, when the Russian and Aus- trian armies came up, he would be out- numbered, forced back upon Franco to fight'one more such defensive cam- paign ae in 1814 had after a, magnifi- cent struggle led to complete disaster. "Napoleon tackled his problem in precisely-'the fashion the Kaiser's gen- oral staff subsequently adopted. He launched his whole military force at the allied armies in Belgium, as the Germans last month did at France. The supreme test for Napoleon was at Waterloo; for the Germans at the bat- tle of the Marne. In both cases tho desperate game, the staking of all on a single thro'w, failed. In Napoleon's case, the failure was a rout, the utter destruction of his army. In the cGr- man case it has been a repulse, follow- ed by a rapid retreat of nearly 100 miles." ;i Mrs. W. H.
