100 Years Ago Today: The Battle of St. Quentin Canal

Americans of the 30th Division go “over the top” on the morning of September 29, 1918.

100 years ago today members of the United States, British and Australian armies smashed through the Hindenburg Line on the St. Quentin Canal. It was the first full breach of the Hindenburg Line and, along with other attacks of the Grand Offensive along the length of the line, Allied success convinced the German high command that there was little hope of an ultimate German victory.

Joseph Dvorak and Charles Noska of Ely took part in the Battle of St. Quentin Canal and their participation in the fighting is why the Ely American Legion is called the St. Quentin Post.

American soldiers rest after breaking the Hindenburg Line at the St. Quentin Canal.

A detailed description of the battle can be found here.Share
