The Meuse-Argonne Offensive.
From Task and Purpose, by Staff Writer James Clark, 8 October 2018.
Here is the lede plus one:
On Oct. 8, 1918, while serving on the Western Front, Army Cpl. Alvin C. York led a charge against a German machine-gun position during World War I, which resulted in 20 enemy casualties attributed to York alone, and the capture of 132 German soldiers.At this point the Armistice was just over a month away, on 11 November.
He did it with just seven men.
