General Erich Ludendorff continued to seek a breakthrough on the Western Front before large numbers of American troops arrived in Europe. Believing that the decisive blow should come in Flanders, Ludendorff planned a diversionary offensive at the Marne with the goal of pulling Allied troops south from his intended target. This plan called for an attack south through the salient caused by the Aisne Offensive of late May and early June as well as a second assault to the east of Reims.
The fighting along the Marne cost the Germans around 139,000 dead and wounded as well as 29,367 captured. Allied dead and wounded numbered: 95,165 French, 16,552 British, and 12,000 Americans. The counterattack at the Marne was first in a series of Allied offensives that would ultimately end the war.
