Thank you guys it is a very interesting area of France.
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.
"Much that once was, is lost. For none now live who remember it."
Interesting pics. Its been far too long since I visited Verdun.
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.
A lot of very rare items.
My father knew the collector where this came from.
He also has a book about his collection.
With some really nice helmet.
