SOMME

The SOMME

There are plenty of options around the themes of WWI & WWII to design a day program.

The Somme in WWI has a completely different cause & impact on the course of the battle of “De Somme”

A selection of the many places, battlefields and monuments that can be visited:

  • “The Battle of Arras”
  • “The Battle of Vimy Ridge”
  • “The 1st – 2nd & 3rd battle of the Scarpe”
  • “The Battle of Monchy-le-Preux”
  • “The 1st & 2nd Battle of Bullecourt”
  • “The Battle of Fresnoy and Gohelle”
  • “Attack on Hill 70”

Another possibility for a one-day excursion within the framework of WWI is the Battle of the Chemin des Dames, including a visit to the fortified town of Laon.

Nevertheless, in the context of WWII, the following places can be interesting to visit;

  • Blockhaus d’Eperlecques
  • La Coupole

A one-day programme comes with a completely different approach as one has to take into account the amplitude times of the driver, but nevertheless one can compose a nice programme tailored to the wishes & budget and themes.
