    An Incredible place, Verdun. The number of monuments there to see would take a Very long time to visit them all! Did you get a chance to visit the "Trench of Bayonets"? I heard that it has sadly been vandalized now and there is very little to actually See there now, but it is still an amazing monument to visit and read about. I would also recommend the "Village that died for France" memorial site of the lost village of Fleury-devant-Douaumont, whose lands were so contaminated with poison gas, unexploded ordnance and the dead themselves, that it was never rebuilt at all-one of many "lost villages". A Very moving monument to visit and contemplate the ghosts of the lost.

    Very Interesting. Now, since last year you have another Museum
    The main pieces are coming from a private collection.
    Musée de la Grande Guerre du Pays de Meaux | Le Pays de Meaux a rendez-vous avec l'Histoire.

    This is suppose to be the best ww1 museum in the world the collection a superb.
    A lot of very rare items.

    There is a totalt of 11 villages that were totally destroyed in the area.
    I have been to most of the places in the Verdun area.
    great place to visit.
