Hartmannswillerkopf, an iconic site of the Great War in Alsace - 15 €

Thierry EHRET, Florian HENSEL

Hartmannswillerkopf is an iconic site of the Great War in Alsace and one of the four French national monuments dedicated to commemorating that conflict. Unknown before the war, this mountain gained considerable renown in both France and Germany following the bloody struggle to control it during 1915. However, whilst these events in themselves gave birth to a complex battlefield , it was only the procedures carried out after the conflict that made it a major site of the First World War.

Available in French and German.
