The "Red Line"

45 km on the frontline

The fixed frontline cut the region in two from September 1914 to March 1917: sandwiched between the German-occupied zone to the north and the French home front to the south, was the war of trenches and the "no man's land".  To better grasp this splitting of the territory, the "Red Line" trail takes you right up to the frontline, from Crapeaumesnil to Vic-sur-Aisne. Follow the road signs to discover the network of memorial sites making up this open-air museum!
