A Companion to the Meuse-Argonne Campaign

The Meuse-Argonne was the single largest and bloodiest battle in American military history, which defined American military experience in World War I and profoundly impacted the course of the war and the development of American military doctrine.

Yet despite its size and importance the battle has up until now received little attention from researchers. A Companion to the Meuse-Argonne Campaign provides an opportunity for World War I scholars to explore numerous facets of this battle, including many controversies about its value, importance, and cause, in historiographical essays that reflect the current state of the field in each instance.

The text is organized in five sections, containing a total of 29 essays which deal with various aspects of the battle and the larger campaign. Narrative chapters are combined with specific episodes within the three broader phases of the month-and-a-half-long campaign, as well as thematic essays covering key issues across all the fighting. For the first time original essays are presented on the French and German participation in – and perspectives on – this crucial event, providing a major contribution to our understanding.
