The article attached here is a portion of that well-known interview conducted just days after the close of W.W. I with General Paul von Hindenburg in which the journalist George Seldes (1890 1995) posed the question as to which of the Allied Armies played the most decisive roll in defeating Germany; whereupon the General responded:

"The American infantry in the Argonne won the war".

"The American attack was was furious, it continued from day to day with increasing power, but when two opposing divisions had broken each other, yours was replaced with 27,000 eager for battle, ours with decimated, ill-equipped, ill-fed men suffering from contact with a gloomy and despairing civilian population."

The beautifully crafted, yet unflattering, colorized portrait above was created by Zuzahin.
