Besides champagne cellars in the Champagne Region, there is the famous World War battle site of Verdun now turned into an impressive memorial and cemetery. Looking out over the 15,000 white crosses is very poignant as well as the stone engraving noting that 10 million senselessly died from 1914 to 1918 because WW1 was not the “war to end all... More

Quiet. Isolated. Impressive well worth the visit. There is no cost and the cemetery is open 24 hrs a day . Contains remains of WW1 soldiers from the Meuse Argonne Offensive.

It is so hard to imagine the numbers of our young men who's resting place is in such a remote area, surrounded by dairy farms and fields of corn. When you look upon the acres and acres of white crosses at this cemetery, it almost brings you to your knees - and maybe it should.

My spouse and I have travelled over the past 15 years to Europe with other tour guide services and although their services were very satisfactory, our interest was to request a private and professional tour guide with genealogy expertise in the Alsace-Lorraine region of France to visit my family's roots and tour of military interests. As background, I am a... More

A visit to the American Cemetery at oisne-aisne is a must for anyone traveling through the area. It is moving beyond my ability to describe. And the care taken to preserve the solemn beauty of the American military cemeteries around the world is a testament to a government that works, and people who care. Both on the part of the... More

Located off the beating path and surrounded by farms, this cemetery is a classic example of American landscaping and design. It is absolutely beautiful. Check out the main building south. It is a nice tribute to the Warriors. There is also a small German cemetery on the north side of town.

It is truely located deep in the French country side. Nothing but farm land and memorials to the battles once here. It makes for a peaceful visit and pleasant drive if that is what you are looking for. I am very glad to have discovered this and the museum for the battle of Verdun.

Superb example example of a military cemetery. Contains no less than 3 MOH winners. Well worth a visit. Don't miss the memorial down the road. Backs into the Hindenburgh Line.

Glad to get here; reminded me so much of cemeteries in Normandy; the precision of the layout of the graves is, in some ways, calming; but when one reads various headstones, the tragedy of it all hits home/1
