Travel Tips for Sedan

BUTTE DE STONNE

by mtncorg

The main French defense line was pierced at Sedan by German attacks on 13-14 May 1940. With the bulk of the Allied army positioned to the north and west of Sedan, it was imperative that the French seal off the German breakthrough - as important also to the Germans to solidify their gains. A series of hard fought battles were fought in the forests and ridgelines around the Butte de Stonne from 14 May to 24 May in which the little village would change hands some nineteen times. The Butte de Stonne is just east of the small village sitting on a horseshoe turn of road D 30. Walking up past a more recent vintage French tank - a LeClerc - you come up to a grand viewpoint with long ranging views up and down the Meuse and south into the Argonne.
