Before the Great War, only three airfields had been built in the Meuse departement, near the three main cities of Bar-le-Duc, Commercy and Verdun. This last town also had a special airfield used for military baloons.
During the war, nearly one hundred airfields were built by the various fighting nations. Today, all have disappeared and have been nearly forgotten.
There were two major war events in the Meuse : the battle for Verdun in 1916-1917 and the fightings by the first US troops in 1918.
A very nice volume which is of interest to every WW1 fan and historian !
