The rear base

At the start of the Gouraincourt Trail, a small road guides walkers to Camp Maguerre, which served as a rear base during the First World War. At the time, this site was a research center directed by the German Captain Hans Maguerre. He built a concrete plant and a test site for buildings without foundations. This location allowed the Germans to get away from the front line and hide in the middle of the forest.
