Update: 2019 Tour Offerings -Additional Details to Come Before Year-end.
Following up on a very successful 2018 Small Group Battlefield Walk Series, Randal and German historian, Markus Klauer, are currently planning to offer two small-group tours in 2019:

  • 1918-19 Reconstruction/Occupation Tour - which will focus on reconstruction in the Meuse-Argonne Region and the American occupation of the German Rhineland in and around Koblenz
  • 1944 Battle of the Bulge Tour - which will work to present both sides of Hitler's desperate and last major offensive on the Western Front in late 1944/early 1945
Randal's availability for personal hire tours will be dependent upon his employment status in 2019. Randal is hoping to find a job that will give him flexibility to spend a month in France as a freelance tour guide.

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.

Bon Voyage!
