The Hong Kong Mountain gun battery in action near Jerusalem

At Monte Grappa, the Central Powers called off their attacks November 26, with the Italians successfully defending the region. The Austro-Hungarians and Germans lost 21,000 to the Italians’ 12,000.

At Cambrai, British assaults ended November 27; the German counter-attack came at 7am on November 30. The Germans have made rapid success; although the British are fighting fiercely, they are being pushed back from their gains, and the salient at Bourlon is threatened.

In the hills and plains approaching Jerusalem, the Ottomans have spend the last week launching counterattacks, many of them gaining ground before losing it again to arriving British reinforcements. Elsewhere, the British advance on the city continues.
