VIOLENT GERMAN SURPRISE ATTACK. Short-Lived Advantage. PARIS. Saturday. [Newspaper Article] — Daily Observer — 29 January 1917
VIOLENT GERMAN SURPRISE ATTACK. Short-Lived~Advantaye. - (Renter' h Telegram.) : '' I'AJtlS.' Salnrda\. ? An expert commentator describes the .enemy attack on the left bank of the Meuse as a violent surprise blow similar to the French operations on October 21 and December 25, when 12,000 -.were taken' prisoner. Five Wnrtemburg'.an and Bavarian re-, giments participated and sustained san guinary losses. After a violent bombard ment- the enemy- was-driven back to his own lines except Hill 304. where the enemy ghallowlv penetrated advanced French lines. The advantage was shortlived as the French counter attacked in the morn ing. A magnificent dash regained the ma jority 'of the positions, finally the situa tion was unchanged.

THE WAR. ? *+. ? CLOSING IN' ON KUT. British Clearing the Turks, Out. - Clever Ruse. j Tigris Crossed Unexpectedly. i (Keuter's Telegram.) LONDON'. Saturday. Air. uancllcr writing from M^osopota mla on January 19, says: This morning we occupied a triangle of trenches, the last foothold of the Turks in the bend of the Tigris below Kut. , The enemy re siled most doggedly for ten days, but as he was cornered we economised in casualties and advanced on. the trenches gradually. Our concentrated artillery trench and mortar fire made the area hardly ten able, but the enemy made desperate sorties and a counter attack. We clear ed part of the last trenches with the bayonet. Finally the enemy departed in the cleverest manner. We kept up the noise of digging all night while we slipped across the Tigris in boats, pon toons and coracles concealed in shelters beneath the banks, hence tlie assault in the morning was comparatively bloodless.
