And now the allies bring in the fat lady. She has the music now. All she has to do is sing.

It's about all over but the shouting but newspapers are restricted in the amount of paper they can use an edition.

Just goes to show how dangerous the papers can be and still are. Misinformation can cause all kinds of problems :roll:

Yep. It could have been another CNN, CNBC, moment of Hillary VS Trump during the 2016 election...but in those days they just said they weren't fed the correct news yesterday and just put in the today version. Same paper the next day added here. However, they had caused all sorts of celebration in New York the day before that couldn't be taken back as premature. Of Course Foch was kind of a dick wanting to kill a few more Germans and get a few more allies killed until getting some official signed humiliation of defeat from Germany.

They day before in the same paper:

Easy to say in hindsight 100 years on but at the time it was considered nonnegotiable for anything but a full, unconditional surrender.
I have said this many times before, The British and it's Empire plus the Americans were not fighting in their own country, on their land. The French and Belgians were and the French in particular had suffered horrendous losses. They wanted to see Germany punished AND left in a state that would not threaten France again.
Anything but unconditional surrender would be seen as weakness on the side of the Allies, especially with the turbulent political situation in Germany at the time.
