While General Nivelle's artillery 'preparation' of 24 October, followed by the assault of four French divisions, threw the Germans out of Fort Vaux 1 November, General Micheler's army on the Somme stormed the villages of Ablaincourt and Pressoir 7 November, 'Bretons and Parisians, under the command of Generals Anthoine and Maistre, fighting shoulder to shoulder along a front of two and a half miles."
