Geocache Description:

Classé Monument Historique en mars 1922.

Construit de 1880 à 1883 sur les plans du Général Séré de Rivières, le Fort de la Pompelle était un des sept forts de la ceinture fortifiée protégeant la ville de Reims. Durant la Première Guerre mondiale, il fut la clé de voûte de la défense du secteur de Reims, résistant aux assauts allemands de septembre 1914 à octobre 1918. Les soldats Russes s’y battirent aux côtés des Français, de l’automne 1916 au printemps 1917. Il abrite aujourd’hui le plus important musée consacré à la Grande Guerre en Champagne-Ardenne présentant, entre autre, une collection unique au monde de 560 coiffures de l’armée impériale allemande.

Fort de la Pompelle was built after the 1870 Franco-Prussian War to complete the fortified ring around Reims. The keystone of Reims’s defence from September 1914 to October 1918, today it houses the First World War museum featuring a unique collection of 560 headdresses of the Imperial German Army.
