Guided field trips in the Meuse-Argonne battlefields 1914 -1918

Starting this summer

In 2017 it is hundred years ago that the United States of America entered the first world war. Time to commemorate. It is well known that General Patton, President Truman, and General MacArthur played a significant role in American 20th Century military history. Less known is that they and a large number of American soldiers fought on the battlefields of the nowadays beautiful French Meuse-Argonne region where you can still find American landmarks of the Great War (World War 1 1914 – 1918). We will bring you the battlefields of the First American Army (The Big Red One). Three days are fully catered with decent warm French lunches. We use comfortable, simple country hotels. In the evenings you are free ansd you can organize your own dinner. We organize transport for a group that consist of maximum 8 persons.

It is the Champagne_Argonne region where the modern American Army and their First Division (‘The Big Red One”) had it’s roots almost 100 years ago. To commemorate the important role the US-army played in the liberation of France in The Great War, we organize this summer 3-day educational fieldtrips starting in June 2016. We are not a commercial travel agency but we do offer educational excursions on the batllefields of the Meuse-Argonne during the months of July and August 2016.  For more info: You can use the contact form below.

Almost hundred years ago, the 16th infantry regiment of the United States army liberated Fléville, a small village in the French Champagne-Ardennes Region. (See the pictures in the photo gallery).

More than one million US-soldiers were part of the American Expeditionary Forces.
During one of the last battles that took place during the Great War, almost 60,000 American soldiers lost their lives in the two moths of the so-called Meuse-Argonne offensive of September-November 1918. See also link-page

Living for almost 15 years partly in the Argonne, I wish to commemorate the important role the American troops played in the liberation of France in World War I.
