nothing rely besides the Germans losing the war
The USA. marines beat the German army and succeeded in taking the wood, ad the few remaining German survivors nicknamed the Americans Devil Dogs.
US Military History Companion : "(1918) Belleau Wood was a significant U.S. action of World War I, attack by a Marine brigade of the U.S. Second Division in woods west of Châ…teau Thierry, France. Having participated in stopping the German offensive on the Marne River, the Marines were eager to attack. The brigade was tasked to clear the woods and retake the nearby town of Boursches. Beginning on 6 June and attacking in linear formations, with poor artillery fire support coordination, the Marines immediately began taking heavy casualties; they then shifted to short rushes by small groups, engaging in hand‐to‐hand fighting in a maze of woods, and heavy undergrowth. Several German counterattacks were beaten off, and the Marines advanced into raking machine‐gun fire and well‐adjusted artillery. "Come on, you sonsabitches, do you want to live forever?" shouted Sgt. Dan Daly, leading his Marines into the woods-and into U.S. Marine Corps history. The Americans finally cleared the woods on 26 June, as much by courage and determination as by fighting skill. It was a bloody fight, the bloodiest in Marine Corps history to that date. The Marines suffered 5,200 casualties, more than half their strength. But they gained the respect of the Allies and the Germans."

Most likely not, the Christmas truces were in the beginning of the war and the battle between Germans and Americans was in springtime, near the end of the war. But history is …often slightly changed for commercial reasons, in film especially, in music less often.
