When French troops began withdrawing from a battle near Chateau-Thierry, France, a French major ordered Williams to withdraw, too. According to Williams's report, he "told him to 'go to hell.' " Williams was gassed and wounded in the battle and died when a shell exploded nearby as he was being evacuated.
