Unenviable Plight of Fortified Cities [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 23 January 1915
Unenviable Plight of Fortified Cities A fortified city is a military weakness, writes SGranville Fortescue in the London "Daily Tele graph." This has been proved time and again in thie present war. Liege, Namur, Maubeuge, and Antwerp indicate the truth of my axiom. Since the extraordinary range of modern artil lery has made it possible for siege batteries to pour shell down upon a defenceless populace from positions far beyond the outer ring of de fending forts, all fortified cities have become hopelessly vulnerable. Now that the homes of inhabitants may be enflamed by fire bombs, what is gained by surrounding any city with walls and ramparts ? The engineers who planned the defences ol the cities twenty years ago failed to reckon on the genius of Krupp. They could not foresee the devilish ingenuity of the German. In for tification we have a modification of the armor plate and projectile penetration problem. R tm parts erected a score of years ago were proof against any shell that ar...
Died With Faces to Foe [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 23 January 1915
Died .With Faces to 'Foe "In one little corner six men had crawled to die together. One or them still held i; his stiffened hand a postal card that I will send after the war is over to his family, that they may know at least that their son died a Chris tian death. It will be some.small consolation to this Christian family. "A little further on was another group of eight, who also apparently had gathered to gether to die. In the midst of the sprawling bodies a little prayer-book was open at the prayer for the dying. Each German soldier carried one of these books containing prayers before battle, for the dead, and so on. One -hkes to think that these soldiers; our enemies, who have died in this manner, are not the same ones who massacred women, children, and old men and dispatched the wounded." The above paragraphs are extracts from a letter written by a French captain of cavalry at the front to a friend in Paris, and published in the "Figaro." In the letter the author de scribes with...

" I -J .S-l 2L, Full Ever since the beginning of the war we have often read in the papers of brilliant bayonet charges on the part of the British and French forces, r?citin2, in almost every instance, in the complete rout of the Germans, whose horror of cold steel has been most rmarked. The above diagrams illustrate the different thrusts and positions employed by our 'roops at the front.
WAR BURNS UP MONEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 23 January 1915
WAR BURNS UP MONEY. Every time a big gun is fired £300 goes in smoke and a splash, and there are 372 sich guns in the fleet which Admiral Callaghan led out of Spithead recently. Torpedoes cost ten times as much, but they have the advantage, from the taxpayers' point of view; that they can'be picked up again after they have'been fired ir practice. Many of the big ships burn oil fuel as au auxiliary to their coal, or at least are fitted for that purpose, but there are 127 'torpedo" craft, besides the submarines, which burn oil. fuel alone. In the aggregate their tanks and double bottoms can accommodati 10,315 tons of fuel. for which we have to pay £5 a ton. : Coal is not so expensive, but it does not. go as far. .If the twenty-seven Dreadnoughts now in full comniission were sent on an eight hours'. Lull-power coal-burning run, they would con sume 4420 tons of fuel, running up a bill of same £3000. If a single Dreadnought battle squadron of e?.ght.ships were ordered to steam at full sp...
HALDANE MUST GO. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 23 January 1915
HALDANE MUST GO. From the evidence now to hand it would ap pear that Mr.. Asquith at one time seriously thought of bringing Lord Haldane back to take charge of the War Office, and was only deterred by the great opposition the? proposal met with both inside and outside the House. Lord Hal dane was the man who was responsible for the rejection of Lord Roberts' scheme for the mill tary reorganisation of Great Britain, a scheme that might have obviated the present upheaval. or at the least would have bettered the position of the Allies at the outset of the struggle to a degree that might have meant the saving of the greater part of Belgium from the heel of the invader. Lord Haldane was the man who did away with the third battalions in the regular army, and who went nigh to placing the king dom helpless in the face of a possible invasion. Lord Haldane was, and most probably still re mains, the good friend of Kaiser William II. Throughout his career this noble Lord has done his utmost to ...
BRITISH EAST AFRICA. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 23 January 1915
BRITISH EAST AFRICA. Some news as to the exact state of affairs in British East Africa would be now very I welcome. Meantime, evidence is not lacking that matters have" not gone very well there with the British forces. The official casualty lists speak eloquently of the losses in officers and men, and private advices now to hand show that the original force drafted into that region was woefully inadequate to cope with the opposition put up by the Germans from the South. Four battalions from India were badly cut up and lost heavily amongst their of ficers. How there came to be on the spot a force of Germans and natives capable of in flicting this damage is not easy to imagine. They have never succeeded in organising and training the native levies to anything like the degree attained by the British, but it may be that the latter were taken in ambush and trapped somewhere in the dense thornbush country that is characteristic of this region, the "nyika," as it is called. The object of t...
THE 100 (?) GERMAN ARMY CORPS. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 23 January 1915
THE 100 (?) GERMAN ARMY CORPS. On various occasions it has been stated through German sources that there have been. at one and the same time, in the field exactly 100 army corps, active and -reserve, of the German Army.

Saxon, Paden, and Wurtemburg corps, and three corps of Bavarians, and one marine division. To these may be added 21 reserve corps, namely, a reserve corps of the Guard, 18 reserve Saxon. Baden, and Wurtembcrg corps, and two corps of Bavarian reserves. Since the beginning of the campaign she has constituted new forma tions of reserves. These are as follow : Twenty-five brigades, making altogether six army corps, and six reserve corps bearing the numbers 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, and 27. The actual total of the active German corps is therefore 251, and the total reserve co...

THE FACE OF DOOM. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 23 January 1915
THE FACE OF DOOM. People familiar with the self-satisfied demeanor of the Kaiser as he is depicted in newspaper cartoons, and in the photographs for which he posed prior to the war, will be satisfied, on glancing at these photographs snapshotted since the war, that the great peace breaker Is more worried than the German papers say he is. We have been told that the Kaiser, since the war, has been looking younger and better than ever. The face in these photographs Is old, and shadowed by impending doom.

Pointed Reasons Why Australia Should Send More Men [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 23 January 1915
Pointed easons Why Australia Should Send ore° Men That we do not- appreciate the extreme brgency of the need for men in Europe is evi denced by the fact that we are only sending forward one out of every 46 of our male popu lation. 'Closer home they know what the stake is, fnd are sending more men, as the following figures show. France .. .. ..... 1 in Germany ........ in n Britain ........ 1 to 10' 1 Canada ........... "1 in 35 . In placing this before our readers we are not attempting to raise an alarmist note.

The Friendly Americans: Interesting Press Opinions [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 23 January 1915
SThe Friendly Americans: Interesting Press Opinions It is impssible to obtain a tree endicaton SAmerican feeling in regard to the war by. r ading the United States newspapes. INDEFENSIBLB. The "Wal-street Journal" says: Germany has poured into this country a 'food of explanataons which do not explain, ecuses which are not reasons, ana iearges (only cooked up on the failure of the pro eions argumeet to convince to justify her self for violating the neutrality of Belgium. Yet, in the face of this, the condemnation of the invasion of Belgium has been ve?mally mnanimous). The facts of me cae were I settled beyond argument when the German Channcellor admitted that BE-.lglm was being wronged, and his only argument was military necessity.

How the Powers Stand in Regard to Finance [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 23 January 1915
-ow the Powers Stand 'in Regard to Finance By Colonel H. Foster, RE., Director of Military Studies, Sydney University The financial effect of the war is of enor mous importance. No previous experience ez sists to guide us. The interweaving of Inter national commerce is a new feature since the last period of great wars a century ago, and in none of the more recent wars have all the financial centres of Europe been involved in war at one time, as is now the case with Lon don, Paris, Berlin, Vienna, Brussels, and Pet rograd. In all the belligerent countries the initial cost of the first few weeks greatly exceeded the eapense of carrying on the war later. - This was because of the huge cost of mobilisation, foa vast amounts of food supplies, coal, oil, am munition, and other stores had to be purchased in quantities greater than required for daily use in order to build up a safe reserve for us du.ng war time. The necessanrly great num bers of horses which had to be purchased, and, for En...
Remarkable Exploit of a Crack Airman [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 23 January 1915
Remarkable Exploit of a Crack Airma The British air work is magnificently daring, writes a correspondent. The crack flyer of the army is a young officer. Ever; day and all day he is up and a ebout, and doing wonderful things. The other morning, up ahead of the lark, he volplaned from a height like a falling arrow right into the midst of the German lines as if he intended to settle among them and at least make a brief morning' call for breakfast.. The Germans were too astonished for a mo ment to do anything but gasp and gape at him. He was within point-blank range of the infantry F.ire. He instantly dropped half a dozen puffs, as the Tommics call the aeroplane bombs, waved his hand, and off and up he went again. Hundreds of ride shots whirled around him ashe fled. Two of them struck hin,, and three minutes later he was down in the British IInes once more, with blood trickling through rents in his tunic. He Wvas patched up and bandaged, Lad a hearty luncheon, and before tea-time he wa...
