ABSTRACT
The article presents the author's description of various battle sites of World War I in France where he went on a trip. Belleau Woods is the site where U.S. Marines, charging across an open wheat field into heavily defended woodsbroke through the German defenses. According to the author, the woods are clear of underbrush today. All is still and quiet at the military cemetery of Aisne-Marne: the white crosses and Stars of David marking the graves of the 2,200 Americans who died here are planted in semi-circular files around the memorial chapel. Chateau-Thierry was the first stop in the seven-day trip on a luxurious converted Dutch coal barge that took him from Epernay in Champagne, through the Valley of the Marne and into Paris.
