Arrival in Meaux.
Discovery guided tour of the Museum of the 1st World war. The territory of Meaux is characterised by the World War I and more particularly by the Battle of the Marne of September, 1914. This museum, rich in 50 000 objects and documents, allows to approach the world dimension of this conflict, of which we often think as essentially European. 200 complete uniforms representing most of the belligerent countries are thus exposed.

Guided tours of the fort of Vaux. It is, from the beginning of the battle of Verdun, one of the priority objectives for the German offensive. In the beginning of March, 1916, the Germans, reached a few hundred meters away from the fort and started a hundred day siege. In the Fort, submitted to a flood of gunnery, the resistance got organised. June 1st, Germans reached the Fort: the isolated French garrison with no external support, has lead one of the most heroic fights during a whole week, but was defeated out of exhaustion.
