  • We visited as we were staying nearby. The cemetery is separate from the woods. Cemetery is beautifully maintained and is as thought provoking as other war graves. One thing to note is they close at 17...  more »
  • We attended Memorial Day and it was very moving. Especially do not hesitate to visit this American military cemetery of the WW1 with your children to perpetuate the duty of remembrance. All these soldiers gave their lives so that we could live and we should not forget it. Ballast we forget

  • Remnants of the great war. Accessible by car, bike a good walk in the forest. Canons of the first world war more Citadel.

  • An absolutely beautiful cemetery. The grounds are maintained year round to perfection. Each grave Stine is perfectly aligned in all directions. The monuments are just incredible. A truly deserving olace for all of our fallen heroes to rest. Such a humbling and touching experience that I highly recommend.
  • Very spiritual. Every hour the chapel bells ring out the WWI tune: "When Johnny comes marching home again...." Not a dry eye in the house. Simper Fi by brothers.
  • There is a silence and solemnity to this place. The scars of war are visible but fading. There is a power to the call to memorialize and remember the sacrifices of our soldiers even a century ago. The staff was helpful and provided one of the best location guides we've seen in France. As Americans, we may be biased, but we felt this provided context for the battle and the war far better than Verdun (where we visited multiple monuments and sights).
  • Thank you to all who gave their LIVES for France, for Europe, to defeat fascism. Guess orange make-up runs in the rain...
  • The cemetery was amazing! The battle site was also incredible. Before doing anything go to the visitor's center and talk to the people there. Jeff was amazing and very helpful.
