Wasuinoton, July 12. Officer of the General Staff of the L'nited State Army who have been following closely th lateat military operations In Europe do not of expect decisive result on the western front. There Is a belief, however, that the perslsUnt offrristve tactics of the French and British may ao hlp th Rus- sian drive as to make thla a dominant a factor In their general campaign. The combined attack of the Entente Allies on all fronts Is viewed by General Staff officers here aa the coniummatton a plan which the Entente haa been carefully preparing for months. This plan, according to Information to which haa reached here, ha asdt main object the exertion cf pressure on the Teuton lines nt alt points In the hope and expectation that somo giver, point will prove too weak to stand tho strain and let the Entente forces through en masse. Th plan wa Initiated at Joint con- ferences between military leaders of France, Great Brluln and Rusata after t't.e attacks which tlie Entente fore di- rected at slcted points on the German llnus bioke down on account of Ger- many's superb means of rapid Intercom- - iminK :iljun. Tnee permitted German force to be niched away to concentration po'nta of Teutonic reenforcements and attacks were checked before profit could be de- rived from the dentB made In the German line. Attack on All Line. The Idea which the Entente force then conceived wa to attack almultaneously on all fronts and thereby endeavor to prevent the withdrawal of Teuton forces from one point to another. This Idea, according to expert opinion here, has been carried out admirably. The German grcr.d army headquarters oares not withdraw trcops from the western front on account of the per- sistent Franco-- b Itlsh offensive, and meanwhile the Russians continue to smash through townrd I.emberg and tl-- e valuable Gallclnn oil fields which are an Important factor. I One description which officers lure I give of the present Entente offensive likens It to the pressure exerted at all points of a sphere. \The further In you press the sphere the greater the re- sistance.\ What Germany Could Do. This, it is believed, will apply to the ataeka on the Teuton forces. Owing to President Wilson's order, no officer In the United States army can permit his name to be used In discussing the Eu- ropean war, but otllcers have some very interesting observations to make aa a result of tholr detailed study of the present operations. It li calculated, for example, that Ger many could If necessary retract her J Ilns to the Rhine and hold them with l.f.00.000 men less than she It now using. Thi advantage which France would, of ourse. derive from the withdrawal of German forces from French soil Is re- - garricd here us enormous. The division of military Information ' has received many reports on the ad- - j vantages which Germany Is derl'-lr.- from her present occupation of Krnch i territory. The German forces now I trol nearly 70 per cent, of Industrl il I France. Coal mines In Franc are be - Ing worked by the German twenty-fou- r hour of twenty-fou- r, I ot Facing- - a Crisis. The Oeneral Staff officers here do rot take much stock In the prediction that the Entente can dominate the rituatm by force of numbers alone. Reports m dlcif that Germany Is not jl I crls's from this quarter. Estimates enow that P0 per cent, ir the German wounded are returning to the colors. Germany's net louses sre therefore put down to the number killed plus tho number of prisoners. The l3sss In killed and prisons' Jutt about balances the number of new re- - eni'ta .Mit .inrm.illv inln the German army each year This number approx- - j Im.ites 500,000 a year. Ucsldes, the va ur of numbers alone does not particularly Hppeal to army experts here In the present stase of the lighting Tlie area on the western frort l fo restricted that there. hardly room for many more m ops to operate at present, It I said. The situation. In n gen-r- al way. Is therefore regarded us favorable to Ger- many ho far as any attempt to wear down the Teuton fouvs Is concerned, but dangerous to the Teuton force If th prei-en-t concentrated drte develops suf- ficient we.iknt-s- t at any one point to let the Entente forces through en maese. Tho dlfllculti in breaking through the Teuton lines In decile .'ash. on Is de- - riid lure as due to the problem of t.iltlng advantage of the drives which pave tha w ay In several Instances of the present fighting the French have opened up gaps but have been unable to sci.J troops through In cohesive force before tha Teutons reooverea irom me blow This wtis the case in the French drive last September. It la explained. Only a thread the French forces from the Ilhlnu, hut the exhaustion of the effort In smashing through had been so Krent that ther- - was no adequate force lef! to take advantage of the situation.
