Verdun, France XLII

Fort de Douaumont, Verdun, France
The next couple of photos will be details of the inner workings of this huge gun turret. The photos are a bit grainy because it was very dark in this room.

Fort de Douaumont, Verdun, France
This is not a great photo, but I wanted to include it to show an outline of the fort.

Verdun, France XXXV

Fort de Douaumont, Verdun, France
Our next stop was the bigger Fort de Douaumont. This fort was easily captured on the 25th of February 1916 by the Germans at the beginning of the battle of Verdun because it was improperly staffed. It set the stage for the rest of a battle which lasted nine months. Douaumont was finally recaptured on 24 October 1916. This event brought closure to the Battle of Verdun in 1916.
