The reason for this is that in Western Europe and North America, people focus exclusively on the what happened on the Western Front. They ignore the fighting and the millions casualties on the Southern front, the Balkans, the Austro-Hungarian/Russian border, the middle east, the Caucasus, Asia and East Africa.

I agree, plus the US was not in the war when this battle was fought.

I recently learned, however that the US had a small participation in the Second (Naval) Battle of Durazzo in 1918, which took out an Austrian/German naval base. We contributed some sub chasers. The bulk of the fleet was Italian, with some British ships.

The reason for this is that the snooty French think everything should be about them.
