From the standpoint of spectacular sensationalism Germany gave the
world the biggest surprise of an amazing war when, on March 23, 1918,
shells began to fall in Paris.
Bombs from a fugitively visitant aeroplane were to be expected; but
shells from a gun how could that be possible when the German lines
were, at their nearest approach, at least 70 miles from the French capital?
The world was at first incredulous,
but as the shells continued to fall
in the city and its suburbs incredul
ity gave way to stunned belief. Ten
people were killed and 15 wounded
the first day. A week later, Good
Friday, March 29, the long range
bombardment resulted in a tragedy
which shocked civilization. It could
scarcely have been by design, and
yet the coincidence of the day and
the objective is extraordinarily sig
nificant for mere chance.
Kill 75 in Church.
On this day of sacred fast, the
holiest memorial of the Christian
year, while a congregation of de
vout worshipers women and chil
dren, and men too old to fight
prayed in the Church of St. Gcr
vaise, a shelt crashed through the
roof of the building, killing 75 per
sons, of whom 54 were women, and
five of these Americans. Ninety
other persons were Injured.
In all Christian lands people were
aghast at this slaughter of the de
The" thing that stirred men's in
dignation was that this phenomenal
gun was apparently of no practical
value for military purposes. Its use
lay wholly in terrorizing the ci
vilian population of Paris by slaying
the helpless. It was an attempt to
weaken the heart of France, to
break- her spirit and resolution. It
was hoped, doubtless, that when

news of what was happening to the

would shake the wonderful morale
which had held at Verdun and on
many another desperate field of en

the horror of this menace. No one
knew when the shells would fall, or
where, but the city went about its
business and kept its courage.
Nemesis Prom America.
Meantime, over here in America
the Nemesis of the great German
cannon was in preparation?
The United States navy was at
that very time building long range
guns, with this difference of purpose
and viewpoint from the enemy; that
our objective was a weapon which
would be effective from a military
standpoint; which could accomplish
definite destruction within the com
batant lines of the foe.
The German gun was a freak. It
may be questioned whether it has
significant value for future warfare.
It was interesting as a demonstra
tion of what can be done in hurling
projectiles through space; it was ter
rible as a further evidence of the
heartless cruelty of, Teutonic mili
tarism; but whether it contributed
anything of greater usefulness to the
practical science. of artillery than
Jules Verne's story of the gun which
dropped a projectile on the "moon
is opcV to debate.
The development of guns and
shells for use in the event of pos
sible future wars which, pray God,
the world will be spared is more
likely to follow along the lines on
which" American experiment and
achievement have moved.
Threw 1,400-Pound Shells.
The new United States navy
guns were being built on plans
which would make them the biggest
ever placed on railway or other mo
bile mounts and far more powerful
than any artillery then in use for
military purposes on the western
Although their range was con
siderably less than that of the Ger
man monster, they were made to
fire a shell very much bigger and
more destructive. The German gun
threw a nine-inch shell, weighing
about 200 pounds. The American
guns were built to throw a 14-fnch
shell, weighing 1,400 pounds and,
when they got into action, they did.
The first mount, complete with its
huge 14-inch naval gun, rolled out
of the shops on April 25, 1918, less
than a month from the time of the
Good Friday slaughter in the French
church. Tested at Sandy ;. Hook.
N. J., five days later, it proved a
complete success.. It hurled its im
mense projectiles more than 25.
If our guns had been . built in
Paris we could have had them at
the front in three days. They were
made to move by rail, and to be
ready for almost immediate action.
But they had to get to France first,
and the difficulties of fighting a
war 3,000 miles away were im
pressed upon us by this necessity
for transporting them.

tremendous weight. But the fear
News of their coming, doubtless,
leached the Germans.
The proof of that is found in the
extraordinary thing that happened
Stop Shelling of Paris.
The German mastodon of guns
had been registering on Paris with
fair regularity. By a series of nice
calculations and daring observations
its position had been located in the
forest of St. Gobain, on a plateau
north of the Aisne.
South of the Aisne was the forest
of Compiegne, and to this place of
concealment the American guns were
headed. With their 25-mile range
they would be able to search out the
cover of the German masterpiece. .
They were barely under way be
fore fhe shelling of Paris ceased, and
when battery No. 2 reached its posi
tion in the forest of Compiegne about
August 21 it was greeted with the
news that the day before the Ger
mans had hastily withdrawn their
pet. From that day until the armis
tice no more shells fell in Paris.
The Germans knew that the giant
freak could not stand up under the
fire of the 14-inch, 1,400-pound shcils
which the United States navy guns
were preparing to drop in its neigh
borhood, and displayed that discre
tion which has been named the bet
ter part of valor.
Tribute to American Genius.
The story of the work accom
plished by the United States naval
batteries in the latter weeks of the
war, in the days which were crucial
and held victory or defeat in their
hours of anxiety, is a story that
would bear detailed telling. Follow
ing operations with the French and
American armies from Soissons to
Verdun shelling bases, ammunition
depots and railway yards they
wrought destruction far behind the
German lines, cutting communica
tions and disrupting their transpor
tation system, playing a conspicuous
part in the taking of Laon and Terg
nier in the Meuse-Argonne offensive,
in shelling Montmcdy and Longuyon
and in cutting the German main ar
tery between Metz and Sedan. They
remained in action to the end, their
last shot falling into the German
lines at almost the very moment
when the armistice ended hostilities.
Their record was a triumph of Amer
ican genius and naval efficiency.
