Country : France

Commune : A town in the Aisne department of Picardy

Co-ordinates: 49o 02' 46.05" N 03o 24' 09.62"

Despite having the title Chateau this is a small town  with the river Marne running through it. The bridge was a target in both World Wars and was destroyed in both!

A memorial marks this at the bridge.

Point of note: A huge American cemetery is visible looking East from the bridge.
