Now all roads lead to France and heavy is the tread
Of the living; but the dead returning lightly dance.

Map Series #23 The Yanks at Mt. Kemmel

The U.S. Army's WWI Campaigns commemorative series has some excellent modern-looking, yet very informative maps of the AEF's battlefields.  I found this one covering the activities of the 27th and 30th Divisions just south of Ypres in the late summer of 1918,  in  SUPPORTING ALLIED OFFENSIVES: 8 AUGUST–11 NOVEMBER 1918 written by two friends from the Western Front Association;s US-East Coast Chapter, Paul Cora and Alexander Falbo-Wild.  The entire volume can be downloaded HERE

After this operations the two division would be merged into the U.S II Corps and detailed to the British Fourth Army for the assault on the Hindenburg Line.
