On the Ropes

Monday 28th October 1918

With our armies paused along the line of the River Schelde preparations are under way for the next  series of attacks on our tiring foe. If this war were to be trivialised as a boxing match then the Germans are definitely on the ropes, like a punch-drunk fighter at the end of his tether. He may have one or two more punches in him, but, provided his opponent is careful and clinical, he will soon be on the canvas.
