Description

Full Synopsis: http://bit.ly/1fwOtPy In this Globe Trekker Special, Zay Harding travels across Northern France and Belgium, visiting key World War One locations on the Western Front. Zay's journey starts in the town of Meaux, 25 miles from Paris, the closest that the German army came to capturing the French capital, and the site today of the newly opened Museum of the Great War. Moving on to the Aisne region, Zay visits the Confrecourt quarries, remarkable for a rock-cut chapel and many other historic carvings made by French troops who sheltered here, just behind the front lines, between 1914 and 1918.
