I understand why the monument was erected but my difficulty is due to the surrounding wood which makes it impossible to work out the lay of the land or locate points of interest. The hill (like nearby Cote 304) is still heavily pockmarked by shell...More

I believe the old line is: "Madness or Lunacy is making the same mistake again and again." Well, this is it. How many times does one fight over the same small piece of earth and cover it with so many dead bodies. If that isn't...More

The monument itself is a bit spooky but worth seeing. It's off the beaten track like many of the battlefield sites in this area.

while the monument is striking and the views are impressive, the 100 year old remnants of battle stay with me the most. The entire landscape of the hilltop is scarred, with shell craters and trenches still visible even though now covered with grass and trees....More

There are several routes you can take but no trees painted or arrows to indicate the route so hard to just head off into the undergrowth without any sense of direction. Excellent monuments and we were the only people so very quiet and serene.

Quite appropriate monument. Most US generals hate war. During the 10 months BATTLES of Verdun, the German & French Generals loved war. The men did not! Neither the German nor French people or soldiers were blood thirsty. And the first cousins Nicholas, and Wilhelm did...More
