Saint-Mihiel, 1918

The attack of the Saint-Mihiel salient was the first and the only offensive launched solely by the U.S. Army in the First World War. It was the largest air operation with 1.481 aircrafts available and the support of 419 tanks. The attack caught the Germans in the process of retreating, and the salient was successfuly reduced by the American troops under Pershing's command. 

      

The Battle of the Somme

The 1st of July 1916 was the first day of the battle of the Somme, a major British offensive with the support of the French aimed to break through the German lines. By the time the battle ended, nearly five month later, more than one million men had been killed, wounded or missing. 

      

Arras, Vimy ridge

In April 1917 the capture of  Vimy ridge was a great victory for the Canadian Corps and today it's one of the best preserved World War One battlefields with its preserved trenches, shell holes, mine craters and tunnels.

The area around ARRAS has a lot of sites to see, including some original undergrounds used in World War One.
