Above Fort de Douaumont

Above Fort de Douaumont

The land in the area is still pitted from the millions of shells that exploded and dug up the earth. When the battle ended every tree and blade of grass on the battle field was gone. There are pictures of the area and it looked like the moon. There were four or five small towns that were completely demolished.
You can see what a strategic site this was because of the view in every direction.
