Promenade Héroïque


On 23 August 1914, the French soldiers slowed the approach of the Germans. Despite the German’s greater numbers, the French army inflicted heavy losses on the enemy soldiers. In the evening, the cavalry corps withdrew to the south. The village was torched and the inhabitants cared for the injured and buried the bodies. The route leads you to discover the history of the First World War, the battle tactics, the organisation of treatment and the building of the French cemetery and its monuments erected in honour of the soldiers who died in combat.
