The Belgians made their final stand
at Nieuport, where they literally

They were outnumbered Jid their ar

they repulsed assault after assault,
until the arrival of the British moni
tors, ..which, supporting them from
the North sea and the Belgian canals,
enabled them to win the day.
British naval officers who saw the
fighting declared it seemed almost un
believable for the Belgian forces to
have held their positions against such
ferocious attacks. '

the kaiser's general . staff intended
originally to take Dunkirk October 16,

to break through the allies' line in the vicinity oiR Arras as well

The outcome of the fighting in the Arras region was as yet

Owing to the flatness of the country and the lack of cover,

The Germans were taking advantage of tf 5c network of
