Battle of the Argonne Forest, 1918Download nowEnlargeShow similar images

Title: Battle of the Argonne Forest, 1918

Description: U.S. artillery firing at the Battle of the Argonne Forest during World War I (Meuse-Argonne Offensive, September 26, 1918-November 11, 1918). The battle, stretching along the entire Western Front, planned or ordered by Field Marshal Ferdinand Foch (October 2, 1851-March 20, 1929), Allied Supreme Commander, was aimed at breaching the Hindenburg Line and forcing the surrender of German forces, which was achieved at the cost of 117,000 U.S. and 70,000 British and French casualties (out of 550,000 effectives) and produced 90,000-120,000 German casualties (out of 190,000 effectives). The main U.S. effort took place in the Verdun sector and it was during this Allied offensive that sharpshooting marksman Corporal (later Sergeant) Alvin C. York (December 13, 1887-September 2, 1964) became America’s greatest non-commissioned hero of the war, capturing 132 Germans and killing twenty-eight more, while wiping out thirty-two German machine gun nests in the process, on October 8, 1918. York was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor for his extraordinary heroism.
