After the American declaration of war in 1917, two million US troops were deployed to France - among them the recently drafted 79th Division. These men, raw recruits from the streets of Boston, Washington, DC, and Philadelphia, were plunged into the hell of trench warfare. With just seven weeks of combat experience, they were thrown into their most important and bloody battle of the Meuse-Argonne offensive - the attack on Montfaucon, the highest and most heavily fortified part of the German line. Gene Fax's ground-breaking narrative tells the full story of these men and their commanders from the 1917 draft right through to the end of the war. Using the division as a window on the US Army as a whole, Fax reveals both its mistakes and its triumphs, and how the lessons it learned ultimately helped it to fight World War II. -- back cover… (més)

Book received from NetGalley.

I am really just starting to read more about World War I history and I have to admit I had never heard of this battle prior to receiving this book. The author does well at showing how things were for the first American forces to enter World War I. I thought it was a great book on a part of American history that I had not studied before. ( )
