The story behind the lyrics:
‘The Lost Battalion’ is the name given to nine companies of the United States’ 77th Divisionduring 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-plus soldiers who entered theArgonne Forest, only 194 walked out unscathed. The rest were killed, missing, captured, or wounded.

Additionally, the tracklisting of »The Last Stand« can be revealed today:
