The battle ebbed and flowed, with clouds of smoke and seas of churned up mud making it hard to see who was really in the ascendant. But now we can say with some confidence that the battle has been won . There are still pockets of resistance . There is still danger of counter attack and much greater danger of guerilla insurgency behind the lines. But the battle has been won . The veterans of that battle deserve great honour.
