Suddenly, fifty to sixty yards ahead, I saw human forms approaching us in a column of twos. I thought them to be French, who had penetrated the gap between the 124th and the 120th Infantry Regiments and were trying to strike the 2d Battalion in flank and rear. As they came closer and closer, I wondered what we should do. I decided to rush off to the right to inform Count von Rambaldi, Captain of the 6th Company, of the situation and request that a platoon be placed under my orders. The request was granted and I deployed my men and approached the enemy.

The 5th Company continued on through the underbrush and together with the battalion staff was soon lost among the trees. Suddenly the 7th Company ran into the enemy along the highway, and a short fire fight got under way at ranges of a hundred yards or less. 5th Company and Battalion staff turned right. 8th Company and the left wing of 7th Company turned half-right and then, with a mighty shout signaling the charge, the entire battalion fell upon the enemy. The abatis in front of the French proved useless.

After this the 2d Battalion received orders to move south along the eastern edge of the Argonne Forest as far as Les Escomportes farm. While I was still at the regimental command post, my battalion, contrary to orders, marched off through the woods and I could find no trace of them.
