Rock of the Marne PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Rock of the Marne free pdf The soldiers of the Third U.S. Infantry Division in World War I were outnumbered and inexperienced young men facing hardened veterans, but their actions proved to be a turning point during the last German offensive of World War I. In stopping three German divisions from crossing the Marne River, they turned the tide of the war. The Allies then began a counteroffensive that drove the enemy back to the Hindenburg Line, and four months later the war was over. This is the gripping true account of one of the most important-yet least explored-battles of The Great War.
