The Champagne-Marne Offensive, also known as the Second Battle of the Marne, was initially a massive German offensive intended to finally break through the French lines and defeat the Allies in July 1918. Ultimately it turned into a significant Allied victory, and Germany afterwards was in a perpetual defensive mode until the Armistice in November. The U.S. lost 12,000 men, in contrast to the devastating loss of 168,000 German soldiers.
The ABMC will commemorate the centennial of this campaign at the Oise-Aisne American Cemetery and Memorial on July 28 and 29.
