Biographical / Historical
In August 1918, General John Joseph Pershing of the American Expeditionary Force (AEF) initially commanded the U.S. First Army in the attack now called the Meuse-Argonne Offensive (aka Battle of the Argonne Forest, Grand Offensive, or Hundred Days Offensive), east of Verdun, in a joint attempt with the French to cut off the entire German Second Army. General William Mitchell and 500 aircraft from the United States Air Services supported this advance militarily, and also dropped propaganda leaflets over the German lines. The offensive was slow and difficult, was halted on 30th September, and resumed on 4th October. The influenza-weakened German Army began to retreat on 4th November, and fresh troops in the First Army had advanced to the Hindenburg line under the command of Hunter Liggett when the Armistice was announced on 11 November, 1918.
