After a bitter debate over how best to use
American troops in World War I, it was determined that they would serve
under General John J. Pershing, but accept the final strategic authority
from the Allied Supreme Commander, Marshall Ferdinand Foch of France.
Initially, American troops were used piecemeal to plug up holes and to
drive Germans back, when possible. By 1918, American troops were fully
engaged. They secured their first victory in May, at Cantigny, just
north of Paris. They suffered terrible losses in June at Belleau Wood,
but still claimed victory.

The real turning point came at the second
Battle of the Marne, in July, where the combined efforts of the French,
British, Italians, and Americans counteracted the German offensive and
drove the Germans eastward. Notably, Americans soldiers, fresh to the
war effort and not weighed down by years of fighting, provided a
decisive edge. In the fall of 1918, Pershing lost over 100,000 men as he
and the other Allied leaders continued to push the Germans back. By
October 1918, Americans were behind German lines cutting supply lines,
and in November 1918, Germany surrendered.
