Advancing to the Front , September 1918


By September 1918, the stalemate of trench warfare had been broken. Allied troops were advancing, pushing the German army back to its homeland. At 5:00 AM on September 13 the American forces attacked in the St. Mihiel sector of northern France. The advance forced the Germans from territory they had occupied from 1914 and marked the beginning of the end of the war.

This footage shows the troops moving forward .
