One of my favourites was a collection of four giants all in the same pose looking down ...
... on only the first day of the Allied offensive in July.
The rail line also took us very near Compiègne which is where, in rail car under the cover of a forest, German officers signed the armistice that finally ended the fighting in 1918, setting the stage for the harsh Treaty of Versailles, which set in motion the developments leading to the Second world war only twenty years later.
