French military cemetery with 1809 souls from the battle along the plateau Le chemin des Dames. Between April and August 1917 the French in vain tried to break through the German lines. The high number of casualties led to the creation of the antiwar song Chanson de Craonne which was sung by French soldiers mutinying against being sacrified in an unwinnable battle.
