BATTLES OF THE MEUSE - ARGONNE 1918

 

The American offensive in the Meuse-Argonne was part of an allied pincer attack on the Germans on the Western Front between Ypres and Verdun. Under the strategic direction of Marshal Foch but firmly under the command of American General Pershing, the US 1st Army formed the southern pincer and fought along the heights of the River Meuse and into the forest of the Argonne. It was a bloody affair. By the time of the Armistice the Americans had lost some 117,000 men, almost 20% more than the Germans.

The battlefield tour lasts for around six hours travelling 50 miles of extraordinary interest from the Abris du Kronprinz, said to  have been used by the German Crown Prince, via the Butte de Vauquois and its tunnels to the Pennsylvania and Meuse Argonne American memorials and the Lost Battalion marker.
