    About

    The Lost Battalion is the name given to nine companies of the United States 77:th Division during the battle of the Argonne in 1918. Even though these 550-575 brave men were completely surrounded by the German army and subjected to friendly artillery fire they kept on fighting for a week until they were relieved. Of the over 500 soldiers who entered the Argonne Forest, only 194 walked out unscathed. The rest were killed, missing, captured or wounded.

    Lyrics

    Far from their land as they made their stand
    They stood strong and the legend still lives on

    1918 The Great War rages on a battalion is lost in the Argonne
    Under fire there's nothing they can do
    There's no way they can get a message through

    Suffer heavy losses as the battle carries on
    Liberty division standing strong

    Far from their land as they made their stand
    A disregarded demand
    It's surrender or die and the stakes are high
    They live or they die there's no time for good bye
    Weapon in hand as they made their stand
    Still disregarding demand
    They would never comply they would rather die
    Broke through the blockade they were finally saved

    Friendly fire munitions running low
    The supplies they were dropped upon their foe
    1918 the war still rages on
    The battalion still trapped in the Argonne

    Chose not to surrender they chose victory or defeat
    Fallen brothers resting by their feet

    Far from their land as they made their stand
    A disregarded demand
    It's surrender or die and the stakes are high
    They live or they die there's no time for good bye
    Weapon in hand as they made their stand
    Still disregarding demand
    They would never comply they would rather die
    Broke through the blockade they were finally saved

    Far from their land as they made their stand
    A disregarded demand
    It's surrender or die and the stakes are high
    Live or die who can tell there's no good bye
    With a weapon in hand as they made their stand
    Still disregarding demand
    They would never comply they would rather die
    They stood strong and the legend still lives on

    Suffered heavy losses through The Great War they stood strong
    But the memory of the fallen still lives on

    Far from their land as they made their stand
    A disregarded demand
    It's surrender or die and the stakes are high
    They live or they die there's no time for good bye
    Weapon in hand as they made their stand
    Still disregarding demand
    They would never comply they would rather die
    Broke through the blockade they were finally saved
