坦克先锋:巴顿二世

待巴顿的坦克人员可以出战时,欧洲战事已经肆虐四年之久。僵局(打成平手)早已持续多年,而两边的士兵都沿着前线挖出长达数百英里的战壕。19189月,巴顿与他的美军坦克人员出征 St. Mihiel 战役并大举进攻 Meuse-Argonne。这两场战事对11月的盟军胜利帮助极大。巴顿于进政 Meuse-Argonne 时负伤,因而受颁杰出服务十字勋章并擢升为陆军上校。


The war had been raging in Europe for four terrible years by the time Patton's tank crews were ready to fight. A stalemate (fighting to a draw) had set in years before and soldiers on both sides were dug into trenches that ran for hundreds of miles along the front lines. Patton and his American tank crews fought in the battle of St. Mihiel and in the massive Meuse-Argonne offensive during September 1918; helping to achieve the ultimate Allied victory that November. Patton himself was wounded in the Meuse-Argonne offensive, awarded the Distinguished Service Cross, and promoted to the rank of colonel.
