The broad stretch of low-lying country north and north-east of Paris, over which so many battles have been fought throughout history, was called the "fatal avenue" by Charles de Gaulle. The English were there in the 100 Years War, Marlborough in 1711, the Prussians in 1870, the Germans in 1914 and again in 1940. The landscape is covered with military architecture of every epoch, with soldiers' graves and with the residue of war. For anyone interested in the great sweep of European military history it is perhaps the most fascinating stretch of country in the world.
