Visited after visiting belleau wood and was taken how sombre and respectful the place was. The security guards were really friendly and lots on information in the visitor centre..watch out for the 17.00 closing..they do ask you to leave!!

The 2nd Battalion, 5th Marine regiment sustained 8100 casualties during June 1918..This monument standsfor each of them for their bravery. I was touched to see it well cared for and honoring these marines.

Belleau Wood plays an important part in the U.S. Marines belief in themselves as "the deadliest weapon in the world" to quote General Pershing. The Marines here were instrumental in stopping the Germans in their tracks when in the Marne campaign of 1918 they were...More
