Blood in the Argonne: The "Lost Battalion" of World War I
- Campaigns and Commanders Series
- By: Alan D. Gaff
- Narrated by: Kirk Winkler
- Length: 12 hrs and 16 mins
On October 2, 1918, Maj. Charles W. Whittlesey led the 77th Division in a successful attack on German defenses in the Argonne Forest of northeastern France. His unit, comprised of men of a wide mix of ethnic backgrounds from New York City and the western states, was not a battalion nor was it ever "lost", but once a newspaper editor applied the term "lost battalion" to the episode, it stuck.
Might be a good read.
