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

Came across this almost by accident and very pleased to have found it. The largest American military cemetery in Europe, it is in immaculate condition with neatly clipped grass and row upon row of brilliantly white crosses. I am not usually lost for words but this is really something.

A place steeped in history. nearly 15.000 US soldiers are burried here, amongst those several Medal of Honors recipients. When you are around there you really should take the time to visit this location and take your time wandering over the grounds of this beautifully cemetary.

Surprisingly more Americans are buried here, 14,246, than the 9,000+ at Omaha Beach. A very sober reminder of the futility of war and the price that is paid in blood. Walk thru the cemetery and read the names, units, rank and home of each of the dead. Except, of course, the unknowns who are also buried there. If you see... More
