In the last century, Hauts-de-France has served as a battleground for both World Wars. Many infamous battles were fought here: the battle of the Somme, Vimy ridge, the battle of Dunkirk. We can never forget these men - from all countries - who fought and fell during the conflict. Their memory lives through memorials, museum or sites like La Coupole launch base. They remind us how precious peace is. Looking for more information on remembrance sites? Get in touch with our ambassadors knowledgeable on the subject.
