French town that has been left as it was (destroyed) after the war??

Jump to last reply

I recall reading many years ago about a French town that has been left as it was (destroyed) after the war (I think it was world war one fighting). My new boyfriend is interested in going to Europe with me in October but he is a real war buff and when I mentioned this town to him he's very interested. Only I no longer know the name or where it is or even if its still left destroyed. Can anyone tell me about it and where it is and what the story behind it is?
Also how can you get there from Paris and what other places nearby are of interest to tourists?
