Description

Within the introduction of this text, Center for Military History’s Chief Historian Jon T. Hoffman, references that “roughly the initial six months of combat the American Expeditionary Forces suffered over 52,997 battle deaths, plus, more than 50,000 non-battle deaths, mostly from the influenza pandemic.” He also dedicates this book and series of pamphlets “to all the doughboys, those who returned and those who did not.”

This resource is a tribute for the many American families whose Grandfathers and Great- Grandfathers served during World War I, and may have their archival family photos of “doughboys” hanging on walls or buried in forgotten drawers. This pamphlet is a reminder of an era when men stood shoulder to shoulder and considered each other as if they were family, fighting to save the world from a new form of tyranny.

In this commemorative pamphlet you will learn that it focuses on the activities of the American Expeditionary Forces (AEF) in the crucial months of April, May, and June 1918. This narrative text will tell you about the places that soldiers and marines encountered aggressive fighting during this period of time in history including Caitigny, Chateau-Thierry, Belleau Wood and Vaux.
