Web-Exclusive Preview: Americans in World War I—A Chauchat Medal of Honor

posted on February 28, 2018
Think the Chauchat is the worst gun in history? Then we think you need to know the story of Thomas C. Neibauer. For it was with the Chauchat (OK, it did jam eventually) and the U.S. Model of 1911 pistol that Thomas Neibauer committed one of the bravest actions of any American during World War I. Not every "doughboy's" story could make the broadcast in American Rifleman Television's ongoing series “Over There! The Americans in World War I,” but we shall tell one here. 

In this web-exclusive video, we tell the story of Pvt. Thomas C. Neibauer, an automatic rifleman in the 42nd "Rainbow" Division and an Idaho native, who received the Medal of Honor for his actions during the Great War.
