WAR SUMMARY I FRIDAY. The enemy has been active during the night at a. number of points south-west of Camhrai and also east of Ypres. A hostile raiding party, which attempted to approach our lines yesterday evening. in the neighbourhood of Gavrelle, was driven off by our fire. Germany's acceptance of Lenin's offer of an armistice came at the same time as the dramatic turn of events in Russia. Lenin's Bolshevik Government has fallen, and ,has been succeeded by a Coalition Cabinet of advanced Socialists. In the course of an article M. Marcel Hutin says that the first meeting of the Allied Conference has been successful from every point of view. SATURDAY. The enemy has made no attempt to re- new his principal attacks on the Cam- brai front. We have successfully repulsed attacks r,outli-w,erpt of Vendhune. The German artillery has been more active than usual in the Scarpe Valley. Successful raids have been carried out by us in the neighbourhood of Warneton. Mr. Bonar Law has described the Lans- downe letter as a national misfortune. The situation in Russia continues to be perplexing. An Amsterdam message says that the publication in Petrograd of treaties concluded between Russia and her Allies' ie-a shameful violation .-of the obligation entered into. MONO AY. A great battle has developed along the Cambrai front. Over 100,000 Germans were hurled against the positions won by General Byng. Our men stood firm on the left, and al- though driven back on the right suc- ceeded in restoring all the important positions. It is believed in Italy that the enemy in- tends to renew his offensive there. Ukrainian, soldiers are said to be leaving the Russian battle front and returning to their homes. Lenin's impudence is instanced by his peace document in which he alleges that he speaks for all the Allies. TUESDAY. Enemy artillery wae active during the night on the Cambrai battle front. No further infantry action has taken place. The whole of the last of the German over- seas possessions have passed into our hands. Dismounted yeomanry from Wales have been taking a prominent part in the fighting in Palestine. On all fronts we took 26,869 prisoners and 231 guns during November. A high Russian official declares that Russia has not betrayed the Allict-, and urges that the present situation is but temporary. The discontinuance of the issué of permits to British subjects to leave Russia may callforth the heaviest consequences. General Korniloff is said to have escaped from captivity. WEDNESDAY. President Wilson has rejterated the determination of the United States to continue until victory is won. He fur- ther recommends a declaration of war by the United States against Austria. There is -nothing of special interest to repoTt from the British front in France. M. Clemenoeau, in an interview, stated that. General Foch was being kept at Paris by the Premiers, who want him there, and General Weygard has de- finitely taken his place there. The Italians are expecting,a new attack. Fresh contingents are arriving from the Russian front, but the Italians are confident. THURSDAY. Twenty-five German raiders approached London this morning, but only five reached the City. Two were brought down in Kent. Our line in the neighbourhood of Bourlon Wood has been slightly with- drawn. The withdrawal was carried out successfully without interference from the enemy. Yesterday our Naval aircraft carried out a bombing raid on the Sparrapel Hook Aerodrome. In the course of two days' fighting seven enemy craft were brought down. A new battle has opened in Italy, where there have been slight enemy gains.
