Event Description

The 7e and 112e régiments d'infanterie de ligne, in association with the Living History Charter, invites you to attend the re-enactement of the battle of Craonne on the actual battlefield of 1814 and of 1914-1918.
The event will take place on 10-11 March 2013 and it is considered to be a general rehearsal for the bicentennial in 2014.

The 2013 program will take into account experiences from the 2011 and 2012 editions as well as the feedback from past participants as well as continuing to promote the Living History Charter.

The French troops will be bivouaced at the village of Craonnelle, where the French launched their attack on the Allies on March 7th, 1814. The Allies will be camped at the village of Craonne itself, at the foot of the famous "Chemin des Dames" of the First World War.

The engagements will take place around the streets and woods of Craonnelle on the Saturday, whilst the Sunday will see combat between the two forces along the Chemin des Dames at Craonne.

We encourage and welcome all volunteers to discover this event, which gets bigger and better every year and also explore one of the great battlefields of the 1814 French campaign as well as the First World War.

No problem Victor. I knew it would be a difficult one for you but as a wise man once said: "You don't ask then you don't get."

 

Perhaps another time.
