Trip Report The killing fields of the Ardennes

Jump to last reply

While I could never hope (nor want) to compete with AnselmAdorne's extraordinary report of visiting the battlefields of northern France in 2007 (hard to believe that 5 years have passed, since it remains so vivid in my mind), I was in the Ardennes last week and visited a couple of the military cemeteries in and near Sedan.

Here is the link to AA's report: http://www.fodors.com/community/europe/-i-feard-to-set-my-foot-upon-a-dead-mans-cheek---anselm-in-northern-france.cfm

Anyway, as is my wont, I mostly only took photos of what I saw, with a bit of commentary here and there. I think that a lot of you have seen the moving white crosses and stars in many American military cemeteries, but if you would like to see the different nuances in French and German military cemeteries, here is my brief report: http://tinyurl.com/sedan-ardennes
