The enemy develops an attack on the French troops on our left, the north of the Ypres salient. This attack is preceded by a heavy bombardment, the enemy at the same time making use of a large number of appliances for the production of asphyxiating gases. The French have to retire from the gas zone. Overwhelmed by the fumes, they fall back to the Canal. French progress south of St. Mihiel.
