Mémorial des Batailles de la Marne is a monument created in memory of the French soldiers killed during the blood-soaked battle of Marne. Built over 10 years between 1921 and 1931, the site was chosen by Marshal Fosch amidst lush grounds and fruit orchards, which make for a soothing yet pensive walk. The 52 meter high tower along with the chapel, a 304 kilo bell among several others, a crypt and beautifully stained glass windows recreate haunting memories of those brave men who lost their lives for France. A visit here is well recommended for a walk down history as well as spectacular views of the city of Dorman from the belltower.
