"It is not always realized how extensive are the battle fronts which the Allies are holding in Europe. In this map they arc shown drawn to scale upon a map of the United States. It will be seen that the total battle front amounts to 2,195 miles a distance only 95 miles less than that from Chicago to .Sun Francisco, while the battle front in the West, where Germany has massed her heaviest forces, is nearly half the distance from New York to Chicago.

Despite the victories which have crowned the Allied arms, their tusk still remains u heavy one, and it will need every ounce of effort which they, and their American comrades, can put into the struggle to defeat the sinister aims of Prussian militarism."
