The Amiens-Somme campaign was a predominantly British and French offensive, as the AEF under Pershing fought further south along the trench line. However one American division fought with the British Expeditionary Forces, and contributed to the great successes the British and French had in smashing through German lines. The campaign was the beginning of the Hundred Days offensive, which gained back much of the land in northeastern France that had been lost to the Germans since 1914.
The AMBC will commemorate the anniversary at the Somme American Cemetery in Bony, and will hold an additional commemoration at the Bellicourt American Monument, which honors all U.S. soldiers who fought with the British and French Armies (90,000 in total).
