Second Battle of the Marne

World War I - All

Second Battle of the Marne was fought from June 15th through August 5, 1918, near Paris, France.  It was the last major German offensive of the war.  American casualties included more than 12,000 dead and wounded which only accounted for about 9% of Allied losses.  The French alone suffered over 95,000 killed and wounded.  Its primary effect was for morale, as it ended a string of German victories.  Among the American groups were the 92nd Infantry Division’s “Buffalo Soldiers” including another eight American Divisions and more than 350 tanks.   Just three months after the battle, Germany would sign the Armistice.
