In 1918, as World War One raged in Europe, an American doughboy named Alvin C. York won the Medal of Honor for his actions in a fight against German machine guns. Armed only with a rifle and pistol, York defeated the crews of several machine guns and captured 132 prisoners. While he was an unerring marksman, York knew that God had kept him safe during the battle. Now you can recreate Sergeant York’s daring fight with the Germans in the Argonne Forest! 20 American doughboys of the 82nd “All-American” Division battle 20 German troops of the 120th Wurttemberg Landwehr who are equipped with three Maxim machine guns.
