A silent film with dramatic footage of a battlefield under heavy artillery barrage. It was published in 1936.

The Meuse-Argonne Offensive, also known as the Maas-Argonne Offensive and the Battle of the Argonne Forest, was a part of the final Allied offensive of the Great War that stretched along the entire Western Front. It was fought from 26 September 1918 until the Armistice on 11 November, a total of 47 days. The battle was the largest in United States' military history, involving 1.2 million American soldiers, and was one of a series of Allied attacks known as "The Hundred Days", which brought the war to an end. The Meuse-Argonne was the principal engagement of the American Expeditionary Forces during the First World War.
