A lecture with Aaron Lefkowitz

Thursday, September 20th @ 6:30 PM

On Thursday, September 20th at 6:30 PM, learn about the last major battle of the First World War, and how its outcome has shaped world history from independent historian Aaron Lefkowitz. For over four years, the British and French had attempted to break the German defenses on the Western Front and bring an end to the First World War. In the Summer of 1918, with the arrival of US Troops, the Allies were making headway. In late September, American General John Pershing launched the Meuse-Argonne Offensive. This now forgotten action involved over 1.2 million Americans, and would be the largest, and bloodiest battle in US History. As we approach its one-hundredth anniversary, it is important for the public to know about this pivotal battle, responsible for the end of the Great War.
