In the centre of Amiens

This dramatic war memorial is in the centre of one of my favourite French cities – Amiens – which I am lucky enough to visit quite frequently when leading First World War battlefield tours.  I find the imposing scale of the memorial really impressive (you get a sense of its size from the people beneath it).  I also like the contrast between the hard lines of the stone and the soft planting which surrounds it, as well as with the more historic French architecture behind.
