Discovering trenches

In 1916, behind the beach, the most deadly conflict of WWI took place in the Bay of Somme, with the German forces on the one side and the Commonwealth on the other side. Besides the many memorial sites scattered through the landscape, the town of Albert houses a war museum with reconstructions of the trenches. In 2016 there will be ceremonies to commemorate the battle of Somme.
