|Battle of Chateau Thierry
On the morning of July 18, 1918, French and American forces between Fontenoy and Chateau Thierry, France, launched an assault on German positions. One of the first major actions undertaken by the American Expeditionary Force (AEF) took the Germans completely by surprise because the troops began their advance without a preparatory artillery bombardment, and ended with a decisive victory for the French and Americans.
