The Battle of the Meuse-Argonne stands as the deadliest clash in American history: More than a million untested American soldiers went up against battle-hardened German troops, costing more than twenty-six thousand deaths and leaving nearly a hundred thousand wounded. Yet in forty-seven days of intense combat, those Americans pushed back the enemy and forced the Germans to surrender, bringing the First World War to an end.
Forty-Seven Days tells how General John J. “Black Jack” Pershing’s exemplary leadership led to the unlikeliest of victories. Also explored are America’s original fighter ace, Eddie Rickenbacker; legendary Corporal Alvin York; artillery officer and future president Harry S. Truman; innovative tank commander George S. Patton; and Douglas MacArthur, the Great War’s most decorated soldier.
Forty-Seven Days is the definitive account of the First Army’s hard-fought victory in World War I.
