Excellent, informative and accessible. Information not only about how, why and where the battle was fought but also the personal and social angles - letters from and to soldiers; the surgeons in the field hospitals, etc. Information given in French, English and German.

Fleury was just one of nine villages that were totally annihilated by the barrage of German artillery during the Battle of Verdun which lasted 300 days from February 1916. Today all that remains of the village are grass covered craters and pathways with white markers...More

Fleury looks idyllic at first but knowing that this small village was fought so hard for during the Battle of Verdun gives the place an ominous feel. The little white markers are all that's left of Fleury and are a strong symbol of how war...More

Not much to see (anymore) in Fleury... which makes it so captivating. A whole town swept away in 1916. Today only street name signs and little tombs remind us of what Fleury must have been like. No wonder people walk around in silence here.

We visited Fleury-devant-Douaumont as part of the Og the Frog childrens trail of the Verdun Battlefield (www.vadrouillelagrenouille.eu). Through this, the children had to find where the school used to be in the village, this definitely made them (and us) think a bit more about what...More

We had a walk through this place and were reminded of the impact war had on all who took part either on purpose or inadvertently. The park is well interesting and worth a stop.

Hello from Australia, I am an author writing a novel about an Australian soldier in the Verdun in World war 1 and would like some information on the history of Fleury-Devant-Douamont, The Town That died for France, in this war. My late husband was French and an ex French soldier. I will dedicate my book to him. Thank you in advance, for any help you can give me. My grandfather Leslie Coverdale, fought in the Verdun and my great uncle his brother, was killed at Viliers Bretteneux. Regards, Barbara Vincent
