Verdun
This French town is now chiefly remembered for the dreadful and prolonged World War 1 battle
in which nearly a million men were killed or wounded. There is a memorial of the battle and an

ossuary
at Douaumont, which I visited many years ago, and you can also poke round the
trenches etc in quite a few places.
