The Great War - February 15, 2016
This episode tells how the German army attempted to retrieve a desperate situation. They counter-attacked on 27 May 1918 and made the deepest penetration on any day of the war. Once again, French and British alike fell back in confusion. By June the Germans were once more on the Marne. But it was too late - the Americans had arrived. It was not the numbers of American troops that counted - only four divisions were battleworthy - it was the effect of their presence on Allied morale. Now, the combined efforts of the French, British, American and Italians were able to check the German's last offensive.
