German retreat on front between Soissons-Laon road and Grand-Pré, evacuating Chemin des Dames, the Suippe, and the main pass through the Argonne. In Champagne on a 37-mile front French penetrate in places to a depth of over six miles. East of Cambrai British win high ground at St. Aubert; north of the Scarpe they advance through the northern stretch of the Drocourt-Quéant line.
