  • Text: Le début de l’année 1915 est marqué par une reprise d’offensive. L’avance de nos braves est / lente mais irrésistible, dit le communiqué officiel. Ce ne sont plus les charges folles du passé, mais / une avance méthodique et raisonnée. Voici nos braves dans le bois de La Grurie. Après avoir / gagné une tranchee, ils se préparent à bondir pour en conquérir une autre. Ils avancent par bonds / de quelques mèters, en utilisant tous les mouvements du terrain. Pensons à la fatigue de ceux qui / luttent inlassablement depuis cinq mois, sans trêve, sans repos et souvent sans sommeil, avec quelque-/ fois de l’eau jusqu-aux genoux ; malgré tout ils sont pleins de confiance, car ils savent que l’année qui / commence ne s’achèvera pas sans que l’ennemi soit bouté hors de France.
