Geocache Description:


Vous voici devant l'une des 3 pièces  d'artillerie allemandes isolées qui ont été placées dans le Bois de Belleau après la Première Guerre Mondiale afin de commémorer la bataille. Ce modèle 1896, 77mm Feldkanone (canon de campagne) nous rappelle que l'artillerie allemande et celle des lliés ont tiré des milliers d'obus explosifs et à gaz sur ces bois et sur les hommes des deux camps qui combattaient sur ce site.

This is one of the three isolated German artillery pieces placed in Belleau Wood after World War I to commemorate the battle. The Model 1896, 77mm Feldkanone (Field Cannon) reminds us that German and Allied artillery fired thousands of shrapnel, high explosive, and poison gas shells at these woods and the men of both sides fighting here.
