Description

In Partnership with the National WW1 Museum and Memorial, Kansas City, MO

On the 26th of September 1918, the American Expeditionary Forces launched the largest battle in American military history, the Meuse-Argonne Offensive. In the center of the assault, the newly arrived 79th Division, was tasked with taking the fortified region around Montfaucon.
Assigned to capture the heights and the village of Montfaucon itself within a few hours, the attacking forces would take several days to secure the area. With support held back on their flanks, and in combat for the first time, the Doughboys of the ‘Liberty’ Division struggled forwards against terrible resistance and at heavy cost.

Join James Taub and Clive Harris as they utilise a blend of the latest technology, period records and the National WW1 Museum’s extensive archive to virtually explore that iconic action.

Outstanding presentation by Clive and Ryan of the American contribution to the end of the Great War through a deep review of the fighting around Montfaucon, Great narrative by the always first rate, Clive Harris along with great period photos, eyewitness accounts and drone footage.
Great work, Battle Guide Virtual Tours.

Stunningly complete, I have visited Monfaucon several times and have a great uncle buried in Romagne, so I really appreciated this in depth review of this part of the Battle of the Meuse Argonne. I would definitely like more on the US forces in WWI. Clive’s research is amazing!
