Trench of Bayonets World War I France




Not far from Douamont is the memorial to the soldiers in the Trench of the Bayonets. A German offensive resulted in men completely covered in their trenches. What was visible was their bayonets sticking up through the ground.

The memorial remembers the French soldiers. Because of the theft of bayonets, crosses now mark the sacred soil.
