On 10-11 November 1918, under a heavy artillery barrage, United States Marines crossed the River Meuse on pontoon bridges constructed by engineers of the American Expeditionary Force.  The attack successfully established a bridgehead looking toward the further advance of the 2d Division on Montdidier.  The announcement of an armistice commencing at 1100 hours brought a quick end to fighting on both sides on the morning of November 11.
