episode 80: Special Past Access DYK: Cher Ami and the Lost Battalion


World War One was full of many great stories of bravery, sacrifice, and loss. The American "Lost Battalion" was one such story.

Their own American artillery mistakenly fired on their position and the only saving option rested on the wings of the carrier pigeon named Cher Ami.
