This newspaper coverage of Europe’s Western Front during World War I was published about a month before the armistice in the September, 8 1918 edition of The Indianapolis Sunday Star. A brightly colored map of the conflict area across France, Belgium, and Germany highlights broad patches of green, recaptured since the furthest German advance in 1914 (with implied American help).
Descriptive text at the bottom celebrates the Doughboys’ accomplishments; “The most interesting point on the map to Americans, of course, Chateau-Thierry, where the Americans stopped the Germans and turned them back in what developed into the greatest defeat that the Germans have suffered this year.”
