General John J. Pershing

American Expeditionary Force (eller AEF) var USAs militære styrke i Europa under første verdenskrig i perioden 3. mai 1917 – 1919. AEF kjempet sammen med de allierte styrkene i Trippelententen mot Trippelalliansen med Tyskland i front.

AEF hjalp de franske styrkene med å forsvare vestfronten under kampene ved Aisne i mai 1918, og kjempet sin kanskje viktigste kamp ved Meuse-Argonne-offensiven høsten 1918.

AEF ble ledet av den legendariske generalen John J. Pershing.
