The Meuse – Argonne Offensive, also known as the Maas-Argonne Offensive, and the Battle of The Argonne Forest, was a major part of the final Allied Offensive of World War 1 that stretched along the entire Western Front.
It was fought from Sept 26, 1918 until the Armistice of 11 November 1918, a total of 47 days.
The Meuse-Argonne Offensive was the largest in United States military history, involving 1.2 million American soldiers, and was one of a series of Allied attacks known as the Hundred Days Offensive, which brought the war to end.
The battle cost 28.000 German lives and 26.277 American lives, making it the largest and bloodiest operation of World War 1 for the American Expeditionary Force ( AEF ), which was commanded by General John J. Pershing.
American losses were exacerbated by the inexperience of many of the troops and tactics used during the early phases of the operation.
The Meuse-Argonne was the principal engagement of the AEF during World War 1.
During this visit, we will discover the battle field, mostly protected today with trenches being entangled all over, but covered by vegetation today.
We will also visit The American War Cemetery of Romagne sous Montfaucon, the biggest in Europe with 15.000 graves of American Heroes.
Also, several magnificent memorials and fortresses to visit, and ghost villages, never rebuilt.
The visit of Verdun will also be an experience as this town resisted all the War and is also surrounded with highlights.
The entire area is a must to visit, to honour all these Heroes who gave their lives for our freedom.
