In the German announcement of the loss of Cantigny there was mention only of "the enemy."
I don't suppose I'll go over the top, I'd like to go to Cantigny.
We faced the town Cantigny, which is situated twenty miles northwest of Montdidier.
The performance of the Americans at Cantigny especially cheered him.
But on this day also the Americans won their first notable victory, by capturing the village of Cantigny and taking 200 prisoners.
More important yet, because of the moral effect achieved, was the engagement at Cantigny near Montdidier, on the 28th of May.
Cantigny, like Seicheprey, was not an engagement of great numbers.
Coming at the moment of extreme discouragement, Cantigny was of an importance entirely out of proportion to the numbers involved.
Beyond the enemy second line trench the road led straight into Cantigny and Tom could see the houses in the distance.
For all of those reasons Cantigny was a prize of value out of all proportion to its size.
