The Battle of the Muese-Argonne was the deadliest clash in American history. More than a million untested American soldiers went up against a better-trained and more experienced German Army, costing over 26,000 deaths and nearly a hundred thousand wounded. In Forty-Seven Days, historian Mitchell Yockelson tells how General John J. Black Jack' Pershing's exemplary leadership led to the unlikeliest of victories.'

I found this to be an interesting description of probably the most significant action performed by the AEF in World War I. He goes into much detail about each battle and their participating units. Given all of this detail, I found his maps to be lacking and difficult to follow.
