    The most dramatic week in American military history took place just weeks before the First World War ended. In the first week of October, 1918, 600 men charged into the forbidding Argonne Forest. Against all odds, they surged through enemy lines - alone. They were soon surrounded and besieged. As they ran out of supplies, the battalion withstood constant mortar attack and relentless enemy assaults. Seven days later, only 194 soldiers from the original unit walked out of the forest. The stand of the "Lost Battalion" was - and remains - an unprecedented display of heroism under fire.
