Sample text

Pershing himself wanted the AEF to be employed in decisive offensive operations that would drive the Germans from their trenches and then defeat them in a war of movement. That the AEF would fight in primarily offensive operations would be the guiding principle for the American planners, headed by Lt. Col. Fox Conner and Maj. Hugh Drum. As they developed their organizational schemes, they relied heavily on the General Staff ’s provisional organization of May 1917 and consulted with both their French and British counterparts.

The losses from the future American campaigns would fully test this system. In August the War Department incorporated the AEF’s proposed divisional organization in its table of organization. It also approved the six-division corps and the five-corps army. With the AEF’s organization settled by the end of August, Pershing only needed to decide where to aim this formidable force when it became ready. In September the AEF’s operational staff presented a comprehensive strategic study that outlined the long-range prospects for the war in Europe and laid the groundwork for an American offensive toward Metz in 1919.

Later, he was charged with coordination of all Allied land forces. Although Foch never had the full authority to command the Allied forces, through persuasion and force of character, he was able to successfully orchestrate the other strongwilled Allied commanders, including General Pershing. In April the Germans launched another attack on the British lines. This time the attack was aimed along the Lys River, to the north of the Amiens salient. Once again the Germans achieved tactical victory but operationally only created another salient in the Western Front.
