This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1920 edition. Excerpt: ... the fort there is a fine view on all sides over the valley of the Meuse and the Forest of Apremont. Return to N. 64 which descends in a long zig-zag to the Mease, which it crosses. The road passes through Sampigny--considerably battered--where President Poincare's country house was completely ruined by the German bombardments. It next crosses the railway before entering Vadonville and again on leaving that village. Lerouville, then Commercy, are soon reached. The night should be spent at the latter (see information on the fly-leaf inside cover). Commercy is of no particular interest from a picturesque or artistic point of view, but its " Madeleine" cakes enjoy a world-wide reputation. SECOND DAY COMMERCY--PONT-A-MOUSSON--METZ A.--Commercy to Pont-a-Mousson (See above.) B.--Pont-a Mousson to Metz (See p. 109.) Leave Commercy (Place de I'Hotel de Ville) by the Rue da Pont-des-Religieuses which, after crossing the Meuse, joins N. 58. Take the latter. Pass through Vignot (2 km.) and enter Vignot Wood (French gun emplacements). After crossing the wood the tourist approaches Gironville. Before entering the village, on the crest to the right, is Gironville Fort. In the village immediately beyond the church, N. 58 turns to the left. Continue along it for 500 yards beyond the church, then leave it where it turns to the right, and take CC.D. 10 towards Apremont. The road crosses the old French and German lines (shelters and block houses), then rejoins, 200 yards east of Apremont, G.D.C. 1 bis, which take to the right towards Bouconville. Before going to Bouconville, visit Apremont, Brule Wood and Ailly Wood, if this was not done on the first day (see pp. 42-52). Notice, in succession, on the left, the ruins of Loupmont Village, 1,500 yards more
