I often see that units from other countries would be attached under the command of others. For example, in the Second Battle of the Somme in 1918, the II Corps of the US Army was attached under the British 3rd Army. What does it mean when a unit is "attached" to another? Especially in the context of one country's going to another's? Under this scenario, would the soldiers of one country share the same trenches as the one it is attached to? Would they fight in the same location at the same time? Thanks!Posted 1 month ago by David Aw.
Battlefield reclamation, how did this take place? I can’t find any info on the subject. I read one account of a American reporter who was a vet going back to the trenches 10 years later. He found many of the trench systems still there at that time. Also had the major part of the reclamation been finish by the time WWII came along?Posted 2 months ago by Anonymous.
