The Lorraine American Cemetery and Memorial, is located just outside Saint-Avold, Moselle, France. It covers 113.5 acres and contains 10,489 graves, the largest number of any American World War II cemetery in Europe. Those interred died mostly in the autumn of 1944 during the drive to the Siegfried Line as the Americans sought to expel the Germans; they were mainly part of the U.S. Third and Seventh Armies. The cemetery is administered by the American Battle Monuments Commission.
