The biggest battle in US Army history was the 1918 Meuse-Argonne offensive. This World War I battle is rarely mentioned in our media and school history books. Once a million American draftees were assembled for combat in France, they were ordered to charge into the strongest German positions, resulting in 26,277 American soldiers slaughtered in just 47 days.

I always feel for these soldiers on all sides in WW1. But we now seem to keep kicking Russia every day for all our ills. The Russians lost more than 23 million people in the second world war which I would call a real genocide. And after their dreadful loses they actually were responsible for winning WW11.
