Deuxième bataille de la Marne

 

 

Après la paix de Brest-Litovsk,

le 3 mars 1918,

l'Allemagne s'empresse

de transférer ses troupes

de la Russie vers la France.

 

Disposant alors

d'une supériorité numérique

sur ses adversaires britanniques,

français et belges,

elle doit, si elle veut

remporter la Victoire,

lancer une série d'offensives

avant l'arrivée en force

des Américains sur le front.

21 mars 1918

 

La bataille de Picardie

sonne l'heure de Foch

 

 

Au début de 1918,

la victoire des Alliés

est loin d'être acquise.

 

Au contraire,

Hindenburg et Ludendorff

ont décidé de porter

un coup décisif à l'ouest.

 

Leur calcul est simple :

 

en ramenant

les divisions allemandes

du front de l'est,

rendues disponibles

par la paix séparée

conclue avec les bolcheviks,

nouveaux maîtres de la Russie,

l'armée allemande peut modifier

à son avantage le rapport de force

sur le front ouest,

contre les Français et leurs alliés.

 

La victoire doit être acquise

rapidement car l'arrivée massive

des renforts américains peut inverser

ce même rapport de force

dès la mi-juillet 1918.

Les Américains au combat

 

 

Depuis le 26 juin 1917,

date de l'arrivée en France

de leur premier contingent à Saint-Nazaire,

les Américains mettent

progressivement en marche

une impressionnante machine de guerre.

 

Au 1er janvier 1918,

il y a 150 000 soldats américains

en France.

 

Le 11 novembre,

ils sont 2 millions

sur le front occidental.

 

Au cours de cette même année,

leurs unités,

instruites dans des camps aux Etats-Unis

avant d'être envoyées en France,

à l'arrière du front,

pour compléter leur instruction

sous la direction de cadres français,

montent en ligne en Lorraine,

dans des secteurs relativement calmes

où elles subissent l'épreuve du feu.

Les Belges

à la reconquête de la Belgique

 

 

Au cours de la période

qui sépare la fin de la guerre

de mouvement en 1914,

la guerre de position ponctuée

par les assauts au gaz allemands sur l'Yser,

au cours de l'année 1915,

et sa participation

aux côtés des Anglo-Français

à la deuxième bataille des Flandres

entre les mois de juillet

et d'octobre 1917,

l'armée belge emmenée

par Sa Majesté Albert Ier,

le "Roi Soldat",

ne cesse de poursuivre la lutte.

 

En avril 1918,

les Allemands planifient

une grande offensive

pour enfoncer les lignes belges,

au nord d'Ypres,

atteindre Dunkerque

et prendre à revers

les troupes alliées.

 

Les Belges résistent,

laissant le temps au haut commandement

de préparer la contre-offensive

qui étend la zone d'action de l'armée royale,

d'Ypres aux côtes de la Mer du Nord,

de manière à soulager

la ligne de front des forces alliées.

1918

 

La rupture de l'équilibre militaire

 

 

1918 voit se rompre

l'équilibre stratégique et tactique

qui, sur le front occidental,

avait transformé le conflit

en une interminable

guerre de position.

 

L'Allemagne initie le retour

à la guerre de mouvement,

espérant exploiter

la fenêtre d'opportunités

ouverte par l'effondrement

du front russe.

 

Le formidable effort engagé

lors des offensives

du printemps 1918

expose l'Entente

à un risque maximal.

 

Mais, à l'été,

l'équilibre des forces

bascule de nouveau,

et définitivement :

 

brisée par un engagement

qui n'apporte pas

la décision espérée,

l'armée allemande

est acculée à la défaite.

Cote de Chatillon

 

The entry of the Americans in 1918

utterly changed the complexion of the fighting

on the Western Front.

 

The horrible stalemate

of the preceeding years,

in which the two sides

traded millions of casualties

over a few yards of mud,

came to an end.

 

The toll would remain frightful,

but the stalemate would not last.

 

Determined to win the war

before the Americans could bring

their fresh troops to bear,

the Germans launched

a series of all-out offensives

in the winter and spring of 1918.

 

The exhausted British and French gave ground

but finally managed to halt the Germans.

 

Then, with the Americans arriving

at a rate of 300,000 men per month,

the Allies began a counter-offensive

that would win the war

in less than six months.

 

In late August,

after several months of reinforcing the French,

America's General Pershing finally won his battle

for a separate U.S. Army operating on its own front.

 

By September 16,

Pershing's forces had earned an important victory

in eliminating a dangerous bulge,

or "salient" in the German lines near St. Mihiel.

 

MacArthur's Rainbow Division

was in the thick of the fighting.

Battle of Vimy / Bataille de Vimy

 

 

Although Canada

entered World War I

at its outset in 1914,

Vimy was the first battle

in which its divisions

fought as a unified force

and successfully

broke down a German line

that had defeated

British and French forces.

L'année 1917 : le tournant

 

Après les tentative

de percées de 1915,

les offensives de masse,

Verdun, la Somme,

n'ont permis ni de revenir

à la guerre de mouvement,

ni d'épuiser l'adversaire.

 

Sur une carte d'Europe,

la situation semble favoriser

les puissances centrales

qui peuvent exploiter les économies

de leurs conquêtes de Belgique,

de France et des Balkans

tout en soutenant la lutte

sur plusieurs fronts

grâce à leur position regroupée

et à leur supériorité militaire.

 

Sur mer l'Entente domine,

ce qui lui permet de soutenir

son effort de guerre,

de développer son industrie

et de fermer les ports allemands

au grand commerce.

Warfare        Mules and horses

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Animals were sold to the British

and the other Allies in Europe

even before the U.S.

entered the war in 1917.

 

(...) there was huge demand

for horses and other supplies,

and American businesses

rushed to meet it.

 

"The United States economy

needs the money,

needs the influx of dollars;

there's a new market

that has opened

— and the United States economy

adjusted to meet that.

 

... We're going where the business is,"

he says.

 

At that time,

animals were usually the best option

for moving people and supplies,

says Lynn Rainville,

a research professor of humanities

at Sweet Briar College.

 

She's the author

of a forthcoming book

on Virginia's role in World War I,

due out next year.

 

"[They] were crucial

for the very, very rough

conditions of the roads

and any transport routes

that horses

— or these four-legged animals —

could maneuver better than the tanks

and cars and trucks," Rainville says.

 

Horses and mules were so valuable

that Germans devised a plot

to sicken some of them,

as they waited in the pens

at Newport News.

 

The plot to spread anthrax,

and a naturally occurring

disease called glanders,

was developed by Anton Dilger,

an American-born German sympathizer

who spent much of his youth

studying science

and medicine in Germany.

 

"These diseases

— anthrax and glanders —

are so virulent

that if he could infect them

before they loaded onto the ships,

that by the end of their journey

most if not all of the mules

would probably be dead,"

Rainville says.

Septembre 1914

 

Première bataille de la Marne

 

 

Vaste théâtre d'opérations

s'étendant sur environ

trois cents kilomètres,

la «Bataille de la Marne»

permit de rétablir

une situation militaire

gravement compromise.

 

Lieu de combats acharnés,

elle ouvrit la guerre

totale et industrielle

que fut le conflit de 1914-1918.

The Great War

The War to End All Wars?

Hardly. But It Did Change Them Forever.

World War I destroyed kings, kaisers, czars and sultans;

it demolished empires; it introduced chemical weapons;

it brought millions of women into the work force.
