Another must do trip for visitors from Europe. Breathtaking - the numbers who died during WW1 is hard to imagine without visiting a place like this. Over 40,000 buried here. The Ring of Remembrance is unique and contains names of 580,000 soldiers from 40 nationalities. We visited after Vimy Memorial - worth combining to get fuller picture of the realities... 更多
Set in a lovely hill top setting, the sheer number of French graves are breath taking, equally as well looked after as the CWGC sites, The basilica is stunning with its stained glass windows, painted walls and memorial plaques on the walls.

In addition to the graves of tens of thousands of soldiers, there is the Basilica of Notre Dame de Lorette, whose interior walls are engraved with the names of fallen soldiers. the Lantern Tower, whose light is visible for miles around, and most notably, a recently built circular... 更多
For Commonwealth visitors to France, this monument might not be on everyone's agenda but it should be. The views are fantastic - it gives you an explanation why it was the scene of fierce battles. You can see Vimy Ridge across the valley, They have a newer memorial wall with names of people killed from all sides. The cemetery is... 更多
