Historial de la Grande Guerre

The Historial de la Grande Guerre is an excellent museum that traces the history of the First World War. It is situated in an imposing fortification which was severly damaged during the war and was liberated by the Australians on 2 September 1918. It is set out in phases, beginning with the pre-war build up through to the aftermath.
