On The Lost Battalion’s lyrical content, Sabaton say: “The Lost Battalion is the name given to nine companies of the United States’ 77th Division during the battle of the Argonne in 1918.

“Even though these 550 to 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 the Argonne Forest, only 194 walked out unscathed. The rest were killed, missing, captured, or wounded.”

The Last Stand can be pre-ordered now. The band are on tour across Europe.
