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

It's a bit of a drive from Verdun and it's worth every km. Make sure to go inside the building and also look at the veterans names on the walls.

When I went to this cemetery I was the only person there who wasn't working there. The grounds were amazingly beautiful and lush. It is the largest American cemetery in France with the graves of approximately 18,000 Americans who died in the Great War. Don't go to Lorraine and skip this spot...

This is an awesome reminder of how very many lives were lost in the Great War. World War 1 doesn't get the PR that WW2 has, and since very few people remember their great grandparents (and basically no one can go as far back as great great grandparents!) most of those buried here are little more than names.
