Duty, Honor, Privilege: New York's Silk Stocking Regiment and the Breaking of the Hindenberg Lineby Stephen L. Harris
On September 29, 1918, a regiment of volunteers from New York State, many of them rich boys from Manhattan, attacked the feared Hindenburg Line, one of the strongest defensive systems ever devised. At a frightful cost, suffering more killed on a single day than any other regiment in American history, they broke the enemy and helped conclude World War I.
