About the Website
The Meuse-Argonne Offensive was the largest independent American offensive against the Imperial German Army during the Great War. It began on 26 September, 1918 less than two weeks after the St. Mihiel Offensive ended. The initial assault involved nine AEF divisions—including four green divisions—on approximately a 30-kilometer-wide front. By war end the battle involved portions of 23 American divisions and 1.2 million U.S. troops (not counting French units); and it produced an estimated 110,000 thousand casualties, or more than 2,300 casualties per day.
On the other side, the Imperial German Army fought tenaciously well into mid October; even as signs of defeat continued to accelerate. This website is dedicated to presenting both sides of that battle. It is also dedicated to helping readers travel to the battlefield to retrace the route of a loved one, regiment, division, etc.
