Les Eparges - St. Mihiel

Les Eparges: the 34 mine craters on the ridge of the Les Eparges make this one of the most intensely mined areas of the Western Front.
When the Saint-Mihiel Salient was formed in September 1914, just to the east of Les Eparges, was the ridge that marked the northwest border of the Salient.
The French attacked the ridge on 17th February 1915, but the Germans clung to the spouthern slopes and mining began. On 9th and 10th April 1915, Eighth Infantry Regiment took the eastern spur of Les Eparges known as Point X -GR 0691412 5438042. On 24th April 1915, the Germans attacked on from the west and finally took the village. The ridge itself was very heavily mined and there are some 34 craters in total
