THE BATTLE OF CHATEAU THIERRY

 

The Battle of Chateau Thierry took place over the period from 31 May to 22 July 1918 when the Germans' final offensive reached the River Marne and it is sometimes referred to as part of the Second Battle of the Marne. There the US 3rd Division distinguished itself despite headlines back home giving credit to the Marines. In repelling the river crossing of the German 7th Army the US 38th Infantry earned the title, 'The Rock of the Marne'. The Germans' offensive failed and by 6 August they were back on the River Vesle. Every year Memorial Day commemoration ceremonies take place at the nearby (Belleau Wood) Aisne-Marne American cemetery.

The visit to Chateau Thierry is made during the tour that also covers the actions at the River Ourcq and Belleau Wood including the site of the Quentin Roosevelt Memorial and the impressive Landowski's Fantomes National Memorial.
