The battle, also known as the Battle of the Argonne Forest, lasted six weeks between September and November of 1918. It was the greatest American battle of the first world war.

The cemetery contains the largest number of deceased Americans in Europe. Verdun is located in northeastern France, some 35 miles northwest of Metz.
