Le Linge - Vosges
Le Linge - this rocky spur, about 500m long and 1000m high with three sides sloping down steeply into the Weiss valley below was heavily fortified by the Germans and attacked furiously by the French in 1915. Today the German tranches are remarkably well preserved.
The battle lasted for five months - furious French assaults against well entrenched German position and no gains were made by either side for the probable loss of 30, 000 [ the exact figures are unknown ].
And described at the time, along with HWK as some points of friction which are now settled
