Extension Of Montdidier Sa
lient Dangerous To Ger
man Army '
By J. W. T. Mason
(United Press war expert)
New York, Aug. 9. (3:10. p. in.)
British progress today south of the Sum
me is extending the Montdfdier salient
to a depth which has made it"ulr..ady
very perilous for Von Hindenburg to de
lay his evacuation.
Great confusion prevails behind the
German front and the principal line of
coniiiuiiiications carrying supplies into
Montdidier is under control of tli Brit
ish guns. The Montdidier pocket is now
about one half the size of the MnrnaLloyd George declared today in a speech
pocket. The smaller the wedge, the
w.Hlge, the more difficult Is it for the
Germans to maneuver inside.
Field Marshal Haig is bringing to
bear on the Germans about Montdidier
the same kind of pressure that Von Hin
denburg couldn't resist north of the
Marne. At tha same time, the British
arc making the pocket deeper and there
fore, more dangcrcuB by the drive to
ward tho Homme, south of Peronn.-.'. A
continuation of the British push may
even send the Germans back to the
southern part of the original Hinden
burg line, if the kaiser delays his retire
ment much longer.
The persistence with which the Brit
ish drive is being followed up south of
the Homme shows tactical skill of a very
high ord'r. The brunj of the work has.
been thrown upon British unitH, who
are following tho railway east of Amiens
A dangerous salient has also been form
ed along the important line of commu
nication. Tlie possibility of Hupprechts
forces being unablj to maintain con
tact with the German crown prince ex
cept by a wide detour to the reur, has (
been much increased by Field Marshal '
Haig's progress during tho past 24 huurs'
The wedge which the British are now
driving into the German lines east of
Amiens is reaching a depth, where it
may in fact, force Von Himlenburg tok
make a general retirement nortn ot
Montdidier, so as to prevent the dupli
cation of the Marne pocket disaster.
The peril of being caught in a trap
of this character increases with the
British progress toward Chaulnes. If
tho British drive continues for the n xt
24 honrs to be as successful as it has
since yesterday, Von Hindenburg will
certainly be forced to prepare for an
important realignment of his position!
