BLOOD IN THE ARGONNE: THE 'LOST BATTALION' OF WORLD WAR I. Drawn from new, unimpeachable sources including survivors' sworn testimonies to reveal what really happened to the 77th DIVISION in the Argonne Forest in October 1918.

Click to EnlargeBLOOD IN THE ARGONNE: THE "LOST BATTALION" OF WORLD WAR I. By Alan D Gaff. In this unique history of the “Lost Battalion” of World War I, Alan D. Gaff tells for the first time the story of the 77th Infantry Division from the perspective of the soldiers in the ranks.

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.

Gaff draws from new, unimpeachable sources—such as sworn testimony by soldiers who survived the ordeal—to correct the myths and legends and to reveal what really happened in the Argonne Forest during early October 1918.

“Alan Gaff’s vivid writing and superb scholarship form the foundation for an excellent narrative of the battle waged by the ‘Lost Battalion’ in the Argonne, and his book is a fitting tribute to the Americans who fought, bled, and died there.”—Robert B. Bruce, author of A Fraternity of Arms: America and France in the Great War

Cloth. 384 pages. 50 b&w illus., 3 maps. Published 2005.

Alan D. Gaff is the author of numerous books, including Bayonets in the Wilderness: Anthony Wayne’s Legion in the Old Northwest. An independent researcher, he resides in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
