been deceived by the attempted
diversions of the enemv.
The battles in the neighborhood of
TTnncaiv) have been of a fierce Char
acter, involving hand-toihand fight
ing in the Streets and inside houses.
The village itself has changed hands
several times, but . now is firmely
held by the French, who, throughout
