Out of Verdun and a bit hard to find. I think it was on the D30 and if you read a travel book is shows you can get there two ways. Trust me take the D-30 from Verdun much faster.

Somber place to visit in beautiful countryside about 20 miles northwest of Verdun. Largest WWI American cemetery in Europe, soldiers from the Meuse-Argonne offensive of 1918.

A meandering drive took us eventually to such an unexpectedly large and beautiful cemetery. With less visitors than sites nearer to Verdun this quiet and beautifully landscaped cemetery shocked us with the amount of graves, revealing a lesser know part of the History of World War !. On the way out don't miss the tiny and very sad German Cemetery.

This cemetery is beautiful. It should be a must see for any American visiting the area. The signs for this cemetery are clearly marked and the drive out is lovely. A moving experience.

Hugely important site , extremely well done , very moving place , my grandparents served in WW2 and although this is the American cemetery it still moved me completely . Walking down onto Omaha beach and imagining the horrors really brought it home, well worth a visit to pay your respects.

So many young lives lost, but a nation that has not forgotten it's fallen...a well manicured and maintained cemetery and a reminder to us all of the follies of war that we continuously remember to forget.Sad sad sad.

Is an amazing tribute to walk through a beautiful building so many names all over so many young lives from so many villages. The whole area is covered with bomb damage you can actually see where it was just bombed. You can pay respects you can see the evil and hell of war

I can't add anything to other reviews. It's beautiful and peaceful, and needs to be preserved - and guarded. Go there and be reminded of what they fought for, and what we can lose if we take it for granted.

We travelled to The American Cemetary in Meuse Argonne last Monday. It is remote and difficult to reach but well worth the effort. This is a beautifully kept memorial to the young men who fell to their death so far from home in WW1. Thank you to David who made this visit unforgettable for my family who were visiting the...
