WWI WAS SUPPOSED TO END IN SEPTEMBER 1918 WITH THE DOUGHBOYS LIBERATING METZ,
AND THEN ON TO FINAL VICTORY IN BERLIN. INSTEAD, THEY WERE DIVERTED TO A
KILLING ZONE CALLED THE ARGONNE FOREST
, WHICH WAS FORTIFIED WITH
THOUSANDS OF DEADLY VICKERS-MAXIM-KRUPP MACHINE GUNS!!

This expose will make all previous histories of World Wars I & II obsolete . . . or gone with the wind . . . because Generalissimo Joseph Stalin, and U.S. Army Chief of Staff General George C. Marshall were British Secret Service agents!

The Armistice was set to take effect at the 11th hour, of the 11th day, of the 11th month of the year....November 11, 1918. . When it was first announced in the trenches the Doughboys were not exactly sure what ARMISTICE meant. Was if just a temporary truce or a permanent cease fire? The shelling continued on both sides up to the very last minute.

When it became apparent that ARMISTICE meant a permanent CEASEFIRE, many of the brave New Jerusalem soldiers were bitterly disappointed. Berlin was their final destination, and they had been cheated out of victory at the 11th hour. As for the Prussians, they returned to Germany with heads held high and bands playing!

General John J. Pershing was in charge of the American Expeditionary Force (AEF). The Doughboys arrived in France without arms and ammunition, especially their excellent Springfield rifles....All of their rifles, artillery, and tanks were supplied by the French and British.

liberate Europe from tyranny, June 13, 1917.
 

General Pershing was determined to create an American Army under his command.

However, Foch and Haig fought him all the way as they wanted the Doughboys as target practice for the Boche.

He refused to be browbeaten, and within a year an American Army under his command was ready for battle!

 

 

General John Joseph Pershing
(
18601948).

The British and French were adamantly opposed to an American Army operating under an American commander. They saw the Doughboys as replacements for the hundreds of thousands of their own cannon fodder that had perished in the trenches.

They also believed that creating an independent army, 3,000 miles from home, was beyond General Pershing's capabilities.


Marshal Ferdinand Foch
(1851–1929).
 

The contention between Foch the fossil and Pershing was so sharp that Pershing was tempted to punch the diminutive Frenchman.

Pope Benedict XV was "praying" for the Kaiser, so "devout" Catholic Foch believed that helping the Boche would shorten his time in "Purgatory!"

Field Marshal Douglas Haig was known as the "Butcher of the Somme," and he was very anxious to get his blood-stained hands on Pershing's Doughboys.

 

Field Marshal Douglas Haig
(1861–1928
).

After several confrontations with Foch and Haig, General Pershing finally had his American Army ready for battle. The first objective was a bulge in the German lines called the St. Mihiel salient.

Renault tanks were driven by Americans.
 

On September 12, after intensive shelling, the Battle of St. Mihiel commenced.

That battle marked the first use of the terms "D-Day" and "H-Hour" by the Americans.

It was exclusively a U.S. Army operation, using French artillery, tanks, and airplanes.

The British invented the tank, but their tanks were clumsy behemoths, and often bogged down in waterlogged shell craters, which rendered them useless!

The offensive was a rip-roaring success, with 16,000 Boche prisoners, and 450 artillery pieces captured.

U.S. causalities totaled about 7,000 killed and wounded.

It was a "cake-walk," and the next objective should have been Metz, and then a victory celebration in Berlin, with no doubt about who won the war.

German losses were about 18,000 killed and wounded, with 10,000 prisoners, and 450 artillery pieces.

Before Foch the fossil would agree to an independent American Army, he made Pershing agree to mount an offensive in the heavily fortified Meuse-Argonne area. However, with the success of the St. Mihiel offensive, Pershing knew that the battlefield situation had changed completely:

It occurred to Pershing that he could simply ignore the agreement with Foch. The Meuse-Argonne drive was not expected to progress very far before winter; the drive was viewed as a preliminary to large-scare operation in the spring of 1919. On the other hand, exploitation of the success at St. Mihiel would yield immediate results by threatening the Briey Iron Basin and the critical railway net beyond Metz. Such opportunities were rare indeed, and it seemed foolish to reject it in favor of an operation planned under completely different circumstances. (Hallas, Squandered Victory, p. 194).

General Pershing graduated from the West Point Military Academy, but recognizing spies and secessionists was not part of the "war" college curriculum!


Colonel Walter Snake Grant
(18781956).
 

2 deadly Confederates served on General Pershing's staff.

Colonels Walter S. Grant and George C. Marshall were totally opposed to continuing the successful offensive.

Unfortunately, both secessionists survived the war, and Marshall ended up as "Chief of Staff" of the U.S. Army from 1939 to 1945.

 

Colonel George Cunning Marshall
(18801956).

Pershing received the worst kind of defeatist advice from the 2 secret agents:

That evening Pershing put the suggestion to his operations staff. Colonels George C. Marshall and Walter S. Grant were vigorously opposed to continuing the action. The attack had lost its momentum, they argued in a joint statement. The enemy had been given enough time to reform scattered units and bring up reserves. By their calculations, it would take at least 12 hours to renew the attack, giving the Germans even more time to prepare. And finally, they noted, as Pershing already knew, the renewed advance would make it impossible to concentrate American divisions in the Meuse-Argonne by the agreed upon time (Hallas, Squandered Victory, p. 194).

General Pershing followed the advice of the 2 secret agents, and the result was the deadliest battle in U.S. history.

The Meuse-Argonne offensive was the deadliest battle in U.S. history!!

The Meuse-Argonne offensive was one continuous battle that lasted from September 26 to the Armistice on November 11. Total U.S. casualties number 26,000 killed, and over 100,000 wounded.


"Dead Head" Crown Prince Wilhelm
(1882–1951).
 

When Crown Prince Wilhelm and General Max von Gallwitz heard that the American Army had been diverted from the easy route to Berlin they were ecstatic.

The Germans had been fortifying the forest for the previous 4 years, and when the French tried to take it in 1915 they lost 250,000 poilu.

"Dead Head" and von Gallwitz believed that Prussia could yet win the war, or force another stalemate.

 

General Max von Gallwitz
(18521937).

That logistical nightmare involved moving 400,000 soldier's from the St. Mihiel battlefield 60 miles (96 km) north to the Argonne Forest:

The more Marshall nagged at the problem, the more confused he became. He would have to pull fifteen divisions out of the line, replacing them with 200,000 French troops, then move the Americans, their French manned artillery, their supplies, field kitchens, hospitals, and headquarters, sixty miles over dreadful roads at closely timely intervals, yet keep the migration from snarling in a great tangle (Cray, General of the Army George C. Marshall, p. 71).

Not one example from history ever existed where troops fighting one battle were pulled out according to a pre-set plan to immediately fight another battle. To compound the problem the move had to be made at night without lights, because even a light from a cigarette would invite ever watchful Boche artillery fire!

fortified Boche positions.
 

The Argonne Forest terrain was hellish, with Vickers-Maxim-Krupp machine guns guarding every foot of the ground.

However, nothing stopped the advance of the "soldiers of liberty."

To the great dismay of Confederates Marshall and Grant, the Doughboys accomplished the impossible. Instead of waiting for the artillery to smash the barbed wire, they leaped over it like soldiers with winged feet....The French called them "Supermen," and even the "Butcher of the Somme" was "surprised" at the rapidity of their advance against suicidal Hunnish resistance!


The deadly Vickers-Maxim-Krupp machine guns
were ubiquitous in the Argonne Forest.
 

The U.S. captured 3,000 Vickers-Maxim-Krupp machine guns, but the Germans escaped with many, many more.

Colonel Patton was shot by a sniper during the offensive, but his orderly, a heroic private named Joseph T. Angelo, saved his life!

 
Colonel George S. Patton was wounded leading
a tank brigade during the offensive.

For his heroic action, Private Angelo was awarded the Distinguished Service Cross. The loss of General Patton could have changed the outcome of World War II.


The "soldiers of liberty" marching to Sedan after
breaking through the Argonne Forest.
 

After losing so many men, General Pershing wanted to be the first to liberate Sedan.

A crisis was adverted at the last minute, and the French were permitted to enter the historic city first.

It was at Sedan, on September 2, 1870, that Napollyon III surrendered to Bismarck.

 

The French and Americans shared the glory when
Sedan was finally liberated on November 9.

On September 20, 1870, Roma was liberated, and that began an historic countdown to the coming of the King of Kings. Except for the Marines, most of the "soldiers of liberty" were green troops, with very little basic training. The secret of their success was the fact that no matter how many were mowed down by the Maxims . . . they just kept on coming....That was what finally convinced "Kaiser Bill" to cry "Uncle! Sam."

Army Chief of Staff Marshall prevented General Patton from capturing Berlin in September 1944

History does repeat itself in incredible ways. The very man who diverted the American Army to the deadly Mouse-Argonne offensive was Army Chief of Staff under FDR. Thanks to friends like Lord Halifax and Churchill, Marshall the spy was able to climb to the very top of the military chain of command.

After leading an American blitzkrieg across France, General Patton was approaching the Loraine region of France. That area was thoroughly familiar to him from WWI.


General George Cunning Marshall
(18801959).
 

By the end of September 1944, General Patton was confident that he could replace the black spider flag on the Reichstag with the Stars and Stripes!

All of a sudden, General Patton's tanks and trucks were on empty, and his fuel supply was diverted to Montgomery.

Delaying the end of the war was the diabolical work of Army Chief of Staff General George C. Marshall, and his henchman Colonel Grant.

Marshall and Grant wanted to give Hitler time to develop nuclear weapons that would turn defeat into victory at the 11th hour!

14,000 "soldiers of liberty" await the Last Trumpet in the Meuse-Argonne cemetery.

Beginning with Wolfson, not one U.S. President has visited either cemetery.

General George C. Marshall, the man who was responsible for the deadly Meuse-Argonne offensive, never set foot in either cemetery!

The world owes and incalculable debt of gratitude to the brave American "soldiers of liberty" who defeated the Prussians, and saved Christian civilization from extinction.

If the Doughboys had failed in France, there was a diabolical plot to invade the New Jerusalem from Mexico. Battalions of British Empire mercenaries, disguised as Germans, were already on standby to do just that. They would have received a very enthusiastic welcome from the Confederates in the South!

That would have meant the end of the New Jerusalem, with Antichrist planting his tabernacle from sea to shining sea (Daniel 11:45).
