|Mort Homme Tunnels|
Just north of Mort-Homme, a couple of miles from the city of Verdun, you can find the old "stollen" or tunnels in English that was used by the German forces during the first world war. At this hill fierce fight took place during 1916 and today you can still see the scars in the ground, and especially under the ground. We had the opportunities to follow the Deutsches Erinnerungskomitee Argonnerwald 1914 - 1918 e.V, who are allowed by the French authorities to study the old tunnels in the area. At the following pictures you can see how it looks today, almost 90 years after they where built.
