    Therefore, the German attack on the Marne was far from a surprise. Holding the Line The French Ninth Army, which had been held in reserve, was rushed forward to assist the Sixth Army and seal the breach. Ludendorff hoped to split the French in two. After Lys Offensive had failed to break through the British lines, Ludendorff decided to switch his attention to the French lines on the Aisne.

    More than 25, Yankees manned the left side of the Allied lines when Germany attempted to crash through along a mile front stretching between Montdidier and Noyon on 9 June. Nevertheless, Berthelot rushed two newly arrived British infantry divisions, the 51st Highland and 62nd West Riding[10] through the Italians straight into attack down the Ardre Valley the Battle of Tardenois French : Bataille du Tardenois — named after the surrounding Tardenois plain. It met with the unexpectedly stubborn and active resistance of fresh American troops. Ludendorff would then be able to move more troops north for sixth offensive in Flanders.

It's God's truth that one Company of American soldiers beat and routed a full regiment of picked shock troops of the German Army
