On the evening of October 2nd, 1918, Major Charles W. Whittlesey of the 77th Division of the A.E.F. led nearly 700 men under his command into the narrow Charlevaux Ravine, deep in the heart of the Argonne Forest in north-eastern France.
That night, German troops occupied the high ground around them, surrounding and cutting them off a kilometer and half behind enemy lines. Five days later 194 survivors walked out... and into history.
This is the true story of the Lost Battalion and will be told by Robert J. Laplander.
