在约翰.潘兴 (John J. Pershing) 将军的领导下,美国军队于1918912日展开在第一次世界大战中的首次大规模攻击行动

从美国于1917年对德国宣战,并且投入第一次世界大战开始,美国军队就在欧洲作战。但是美军当时只负责支持法国与英国,主要的作战还是由这两个国家来负责。西元1918912日,美国特遣部队 (American Expeditionary ForcesAEF) 在约翰.潘兴将军的指挥下,发动美军在欧洲首次的主要独立攻击行动。而特遣部队的胜利也为协约国在欧洲战场的战况带来转机。最后,美国军队协助盟军击败德国,战争比预期时间还要更早退出。

Since 1917, when the U.S. declared war on Germany and entered World War I, American divisions had fought in Europe. But they had only fought in support of the major French or British units already firmly entrenched in the effort. On September 12, 1918, the American Expeditionary Forces (AEF) under General John J. Pershing launched their first major offensive in Europe as an independent army. Their successful campaign was a major turning point in the war for the Allies. Ultimately, U.S. forces helped to defeat Germany earlier than expected.
