German Barbarities and Cruelties
Captain Leslie Vickers of the British Army at a luncheon in the
Palm CardiMi of the Atlolphus Hotel at noon Tuesday said as follows:
"I am only a junior officer of what the Germans called 'that con-
temptible little army' and I am speaking to the citizens of the only
Nation which has ever whipped my country. You won because you
were right and because we were wrong. You defeated us the first time
because we employed German soldiers to fight you and whipped us the
second time because a King with German bluod in his veins was upon
our throne. You will never lick us again because we will never fight
you again. We may have disputes and quarrels but we will never draw-
swords against you. Your returned soldiers and ours will be strong
pacifists not men with yellow stripes but men who know the horrors of
war and realize that it is the most absurd and futile method of settling
disputes. These men and their nations will fight when the time comes
for the preservation of their honor and the good things of life. They are
going to take a prominent part in social economic business civic polit-
ical and religious phases of life as wounded soldiers of our National are
"We wanted you Americans in the fight from the very beginning.
We wanted and needed your munitions your ships your food your
clothing and your men but we also needed your moral support. We
wanted everything you have.
"In the United States 1 have witnessed war preparations on a colos-
sal scale and I know you are in the war to the end as we are. Though
we may be a Nation of shopkeepers as the Germans say when we put
our signature on a piece of paper we stand back of it with all of our re-
sources energy and moral courage. We went to the rescue of Belgium
whose neutrality had been violated and we will never sheathe our sword
until that brave little country has been restored and its citizens recom-
pensed as far as possible.
"We went to war to help protect Helgium but we also started
fighting because our country was in danger. We went into the conflict
determined to fight gentlemen and soldiers but when we saw llelgian
babies with their hands eut off when we saw old men and women die
by the roadside when we heard little children tell of the last horrible
hours of their violated and murdered mothers then each soldier knew
he had something personal to fight for. From that time one we fought
to avenge the wrongs of civilization. I have seen the Huns advancing
with murderous intent upon my regiment using I!elgian cvilians as a
shield. We retreated over a river the bridge of which had been mined
but we did not blow up the structure because to do so would have killed
the innocent men women and children whom we had come to protect.
We retreated from position to position the Germans following hard
upon us. Finally we came to a ridge which we could not afford to
give up and our commander ordered us to hold it whatever the cost.
We were forced to fire upon the foe and killed many innocent Belgians.
We advanced with bayonts in position and fought like madmen. Wo
did not take a German prisoner we had other use for them. We
( hanged our opinion of the German soldiers when we learned of their
methods of warfare.
"If the Germans get. within five miles of my home I will not per-
mit my wife and child to live. Death would be far more preferable.
The Germans will not respect the Red Gross or the white flag. One
day my company was almost destroyed on No .Man's Land. A few of
us returned safely to our trenches but many wounded men were left
where they fell amd barbed wire entanglements. We raised a white
flag and asked permission to rescue them but this was refused. We
then made plans to rescue them the following night. During the clay
however the Germans ran iron pipes out to the wounded soldiers and
pumped boiling oil upon them. We saw the men writhing in agony and
begged our officers to let us charge the German trench but he showed
us that it would be futile as the Germans outnumbered us five to one
and explained that if the regiment were defeated the Germans would
have an opening through the battle line.
'"The Germans have driven Red Gross ambulances into No Man's
Land ostensibly to rescue wounded Germans but when they came near
our line they turned about and poured a murderous fire into our midst
with machine guns on the rear of the Red Gross ambulances. In many
ways they have violated the conventions of man and God. These
t hings do not make us afraid but fire us with a desire 'for revenge. The
Germans keep some of our prisoners near their trenches and we fire
upon them every day not being able to prevent it. 1 have seen a French
peasant who hail escaped weak and emaciated from a German prison
' camp return to his old farm to find everything in ruins and his wife
and child dead. I heard him pray to God for strength to go back into
the line to avenge his wrongs.
"You are far from Germany and so far you have been spared only
because the Hun has not had the opportunity to reach you.
"We are fighting for the preservation of liberty democracy jus-
tice and Christianity. With us the Germans are devils. We were short
of men and munitions until a long time after the war started. Seeing
our line threatened 1 have telephoned for artillery support only to be
told that the supply had been exhausted. I have seen the time when
doctors stretcher-bearers and other relief workers could not get to our
trenches to administer to the wounded. It is hard to see your best
friends die in a trench because they cannot get proper medical atten-
tion. I have seen men go mad and fall dying in agony in my arms dur-
ing gas attacks. 1 have see orderlies cooks and every available man
of regiments fighting in the trenches and the Germans did not break
".My head was operated on without an anesthetic and I have seen
hundreds of men suffering agonies while their limbs were amputated
without means of relieving pain. You dare not let your soldiers go
through similar experiences. It is your duty and privilege to see that
they receive all necessities and comforts.
"There is nothng to indicate that the war is Hearing its end. Groat
Britain is paying a price equal to Belgium or France and we are proud
of it. I like many others have lost almost all of my friends and many
relatives in the war. We are paying the price and will continue to pay
the price but we will never give up. .My heart my mind my eyes go
back to the trenches today when 1 read about the great spring drive and
1 can see the men going down the trenches 1 can hear the stroke of bul-
lets and hear the cries of wounded men. These men invariably ask for
cigarettes or ask us to write a few notes to a loved one or deliver a last
message already written. We have come to the time when women no
longer weep and when people realize that a dead hero is better than a
"Belgium has been devastated but it has not lost it soul. Prince
Albert might ask the Kaiser: 'What does it profiteth a man if he gain
the whole world and lose his own soul?' 1 see no more Christian duty
than killing Germans.
"You are in the fight now and you must battle on at home and
abroad. I have never seen better troops than those of America. This is
a time of supreme sacrifice and we know the United States is not too
proud to fight or make sacrifes. Your flag has never met defeat and
you must never let it."
