Historic Landscapes - Fort de Troyon - Troyon, France
The barracks of Fort de Troyon. This fort was part of the defence line between Nancy and Verdun. It prevented that German troops could surround Verdun in 1914. It suffered from heavy bombardments but it held on and its resistance changed the course of the war.
