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...

"This chapel is erected by the United States of America as a sacred rendezvous of a grateful people with its immortal dead" The Meuse-Argonne American Cemetery, the largest American military cemetery in Europe, is indeed a sacred place. WWI American doughboys who fought in the Meuse-Argonne campaign area have their final resting place here, along with the many thousands of... More

Beautifully maintained as you might expect. A sea of crosses and stars of David, for young men (and some women) who had travelled around the world to fight, as had the many Commonwealth lads who fell in the British sector.

A beautiful setting where you find rows upon rows of gravestones. The sheer number is just a reminder of the destruction. The grounds are sympathetically tended.

Very humbling experience. Must see. Visitors centre has a fantastic and informative display. You should allow at least 3 hours for the visit. There is direct pedestrian access to Omaha beach also.
