THE ST. MIHIEL OFFENSIVE: 12 to 16 September 1918
The St Mihiel Offensive was the first full scale attack that was under the direct command of the Americans. General J Pershing combined his command of the First (at the time the only) American Army with that of Commander in Chief of the AEF, a tremendous burden.
The American attack (with the assistance of a French Corps) was an outstanding success and the Germans were forced into a rapid withdrawal to the Michel Line, a strongly defended position that formed the Hindenburg Line in this area. Pershing's original hope had been to continue the offensive to seize Metz, crucial rail links and economically vital areas to the German war effort.
Profusely illustrated with contemporary photographs and numerous maps, the narrative is supplemented by a number of first hand accounts and supported by several walking and car tours.
