The stirring account of the Third U.S. Infantry Division in the Second Battle of the Marnewhere the tide of World War I was finally turnedThe soldiers of the Third U.S. Infantry Division in World War I were outnumbered and inexperienced young men facing hardened veterans, but their actions proved to be a turning point during the last German offensive of World War I.In stopping three German divisions from crossing the Marne River, these heroic American soldiers blocked the road to Paris east of Chteau-Thierry, helped save the French capital and, in doing so, played a key role in turning the tide of the war. The Allies then began a counteroffensive that drove the enemy back to the Hindenburg Line, and four months later the war was over.Rock of the Marne follows the Third Divisions Sixth Brigade, which took the brunt of the German attack.
