THE SITUATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 7 November 1914
THE SITUATION. ·!:At r~g~iesthe t i~cd~1I c I~ftwlbre. tbce British" force seems to be maihly, engpged, the situn: • .r ticn has gradually improved during the week. ihe Allies"had driven a wedge in between Litre and Ostend, which the Gerisans hold Thc point of this wedge was about Romu??r, asnd its northern face. ran-by Diamude to the ea at Nienpor, along the south bank of th Yser. oarly in the week the Germans crossed that river between Nietitore and Dixnmud- ann if this movement had bran continued tht Ahied wedge would have been gravely penetrated, and eust have been withdrawn- We. now learn that the Germans have been thrown back over the Yser and. driven off the- coast, scept .at Ostend and further north, where they are erect' ing large batteries to stave off the-British -bom acrdment from the sea. - The Allied-troops within the wedge have advanced -as far as Thourout, and driven the enemy back to B "rukg All this has becn the result of heavy flghting, both on the Yser and round ...
OBJECT OF THE ALLIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 7 November 1914
OBJECT OF THE ALLIES. - It would stem that the object, of the Alliei i to allow the Germans to make violent at tacks, which are repelled with very heavy loss. The Alles apparently do hot desire to fight a great battle in order to ptush the" Germans back. It is probably better policy to allow them to stay at as great a distance as possible from their own country, until their morale and num bers are so worn down that a general ad vance-on the part of the Allies wifl be easy. It must-be remembered that ahe troops of the third and fourth lines, who are being sent up to reinforce, are of very inferior quality to the .t-st-line German. troops, who originally tosh the field and nearly reached Paris. They ar poorly olficered,.the men have had little.train rg.forosome years and.sometImes only recruit training isince -the war- began. The infantry must be provided seagrely, with "artilley. and eavalry in: these Jater.rafsed armies, and it will be very difficult to replace in those arms the los...
THE POSITION IN POLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 7 November 1914
THE POSITION IN POLAND. DnPolthd; it appears t that the Genans have suffere defeat in the greatest battle of the war which lasted five days. This .battle extended fromea littlenoe to the west of Wareaw, along the left bank of the Vistula. to the south of Proemysl in "Galeia. ,a' istance of 250 miles In this. battle the maln-German farces had aloined the .Austrians to the south, and their defeat.is the most important event of the war up to now. The German left wing was driven hack to the Polish frontier at Kalisz, their retirement being doe to the dread of being caught between the Russian armites moving southward on the German left near Warsaw, and those moving west against .the Gcrman Austrian front. This has driven back the Ger man left wing, but it is not clinr that their right, wing nearer the Galican frontier has been so badly defeated. It cannot, however, keep its advanced position .if the left wing has hllen back and uncovered the rest of the German Army to a Russian attack fr...
RUSSIAN RETIREMENT DELIBERATE. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 7 November 1914
RUSSIAN RETIREMENT DELIBERATE. It will be seen that the R?ussians fell back considerably before accepting this great battle, for earlier in the war we heard that troops had been down the Vistula nearly to Thorn, and had advanced through Galicia, beyond Przemysl, toward Cracow. This retirement was probably deliberate. In the first place it would enable the advanced Russian armies to concentrate with others'comneg up from the interior, but its mostly important effect would be that the Germans. would have to fight a decisive battl e at a ditanc of 200 miles from their own country.. This would cause great difficulties as to supply, for the railways' mn Russia are of a broader gauge than those in Germany, expressly to prevent a German in vader from malking use of his own. rolling stock on them. It must. however, be noted that there is one railway which runs through. from Berlin to Warsaw without break of gauge. Besides this, there are very few rail' ways at all in the part of Poland over...
EXCHANGE OF FORCES. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 7 November 1914
I EXCHANGE Ow FORCES. If is not very cdear what is the meaning of the news from Petrograd.that the British-and Russianzi Governments .have agreed :on an ex change of combatant and technical forces. This,' no doubt, applies to upits- of the -land forces, -and seenms to mean: that- the Russians who are imniensel-strobnger than the Britishin 'cavalry and 'infantry,. desire to exchange units :of those arms for units- of the-technicil'services in which they are weaker. Such technical ser vices. might comprise-battaeries of artillery other than field batternes, in which the-Russians are not particularly efficient, or units of the air ser vices, or,. possibly, trains of motor transport Certain technical units of .engineers, and field searchlight detachments may also be- included.
TURKEY AT WAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 7 November 1914
TURKEY AT WAR. Turkey has initiated hostile action against Russia by bombardment from the sea.. There has been no declaration of war, and seeing the somewhat irresponsible natureof the Turk. it is not quite clear whether this indicates a de cislon to engage in war with the Allies. It is known that there has been at Constantinople a conflict of opinion between the. Young Turk ?arty. who have bhen-won over by German influence, and the Peace Party, which the Sultan supports. liHe recently deposed Eniver Beynfrom the office of-Commander-in-Chief,to which he appointed the heir-apparent Enver hey, who is a young man of fiery disposition and military talent. is.'a fighting member of the Young Turk Party. and took the chief part in deposing the old Sultan.
WHAT OF BULGARIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 7 November 1914
WHAT OF BULGARIA If Turkey means to fight it can only be with the hope of recovering some of the territory lost in the late war, and as she is entirely hemmed in by-Bulgaria. she -can only extend her borders at the expense of that nation, or by its consest, which would mean that Bul garia hopes to be compensated elsewhere. The attitude of Bulgaria is rather mysteriouss Early in the war we heard that she had arranged with Greece to fight Turkey if that country w.ent to war. -But later.there was a rumor that Turkey anid Bulgaria had made some arrangement to co-6perate. If this be truse, it must mean that Bulgaria hopes to recover the territory which Greece and Servia ·took from h'er in the second part of the Balkan wvar, after she had conquered it from Turkey herself. Greece, at any rate, is spoiling for a fight 'nuith Turkey ,and considers herself stro:tg enough at sea to beat her.
WOULD ITALY BE FORCED IN? [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 7 November 1914
.WOULD ITALY BE FORCED IN ? Turkey at war would probably prove a drr.ger to the recent acquisitions .of Italy ro the Aegean Islands, and this might possibly precipitate Italy into the conlict" In this case the situation would be complicated by the fact that Greece is jealous df the Italian land-. ing in Albania, and is said to have moved troops. over her frontier into that country to . occepy the Albanian coast. opposite Corfu. Italian and Greek .troops are thus not far apart, and some conflict might easily arise In Southern Albania. Possibly1 however, their .mutual hostility to Turkey might for the pre sent salve over their. jealousie there.

The reason for the overwhelming charac ter ol Russian successes may be found in their having far superior numbero of troops, and perhaps in the fact that' the German armies opposed' to them are largely, composed of re nerve forma...

REASON FOR AUSTRIAN REVERSES. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 7 November 1914
REASON FOR AUSTRIAN REVERSES. The Russian successes against the. Austrians were thought probable by all who had" con -idwred the history. orAustria in previous wars, which has been marked by constant failure. The failure has not been due to lack of good fighting on the part of the gallant Austrians and Hungarians, but their commanders have never been quite competent for their tank, and the staff-and administrative services of those somewhat easy-going people have never been up to the mark. In numbers, too, Austria in a very weak Power aompared to Germany and France, and she -has had to .keep some of her 16 army. corps .of first line to oppose the Servians, and probably ,to watch the Italian frontier as well, while we have, from time to time heard of Austrian troops having joined the Germans, both in Alsace and in Belgium. The Austrian armies opposing the Russians in Galicia, even when strengthened by reserve corps, must have been very inferiorin numbers, and the fact that the German...
"HELL'S FURY BLAZED FROM THEIR EYES." [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 7 November 1914
IHELL'S FURY BLAZED FROM THEIR EYES." An officer describes the battle of Mon as-! follows : "As the Germans" scrambled up they seemed cocksure of themselves, but they had forgotten cur men posted under cover on their right, antI JUst as they were steadying themselves for one last rush at us a withering fire was opened on them, and at the same time we cleared the way for the hussars, who were at them right and left as soon as the fire of our men ceased. Hiell's fury blazed from the eyes of the trapped Germans as they tried to grapple with their new joe, and.we stood there silent dpectators lest we.should hit -our cavalry. It .only .oJ.l them-a few einlutes-to make up 'their winds. and with a bloodcurling wail that I shal re member to my -dying day they ran as though |ll-the'fiends were after'them.

"THEY RAN LIKE HARES." [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 7 November 1914
"THEY RAN LIK e- HARES.r e-" A non corn. of the Royal Berkshire Regi nient, describing the -fighting around Mons, says : "As they came into view in the open in front of our hastily dug trenches our men opened on them with a steady fire that never 'once went wide, and we could see clean:cut gaps -in the tightly packed ranks as the hail of lead tore In jagged way through them. -.They were a game Ict. however. and kept closing.up the .aps. i:1. their ranks as though they were so many m.arionettes Flesh and blood cannot stand this surt of thing for ever, and aoter' a while they 1-egan to come along with less confident step.

Realistic Explanation of How a Modern Battle is Fought A PORTION OF AN ARMY ENGAGED: AN INFANTRY BRIGADE (4 BATTALIONS) AND AN ARTILLERY BRIGADE IN ACTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 7 November 1914
ealistic Xp1 ?ation --of How a Modern Battle is Fought A PORTION OF AN ARMY ENGAGED: AN INFANTRY BRIGADE (4 BATFALIONS) AND AN ARTILLERY BRIGADE IN ACTION. . (By COLONEL H. FOSTER, RiE., Director of Military Studies at Sydney University.) HE characteristics of modern war which distinguish it from the fighting of 30 years ago are the invisibility of the troops in action, owing to .the use of smokeless posider, and the great area covered by fire, in consequenrce of the range and effectiveness ~f modern rifles and artillery. Battles nowy'cover an enormous extent of ground, compared with those of even a few years ago, owitig to. the wide extensiois. due to a constant tendency to try and overlap the enemy's flank, and they last as many days as they did hours in thle nineteenth century. At Gravelotte, in 1870, the front of the two armies, each of nearly 200,000 men, covered ohly seven miles, whereas in Manchuria, in 1904, at the Sha-Ho, and at Mukden, armies only twice as large covered 60...

The Kaiser's Gospel Here are some of the things Kaiser Wlliiom haa.said about himself from time to time: "Remember the maxim of an old Emperor, who said: 'The Emperor's word must not be twisted or explained away.' "Shame on the mun who abandons his King!" "You wear the Emperor's uniform: you have thereby received a preference over other men." "I am the possessor of an inflexible deter mination to proceed fearlesslv.ion the path that has once been recognised as the right one, and this in spite of all opposition." "As I look upon myself as an Instrumenht of the Lord I am indifferent to the point of view of tbo present day.'" "The soldibr must not have a will of his own-. they must all have only one will, and that will Is mine." "A ruler may be very disagreeable, and I will to disagreeable if I think it necessary." .'There is only one master In this country. which 1 myself lay down."
