Fort Douaumont Part 2, the disarmament of the Fort. Following the failure of the Brialmont forts of Belgium and numerous French Séré de Riviéres forts to resist German siege artillery, military planners lost all faith in the value of permanent fortifications. The result was that in April 1915, Marshal Joffre issued the fateful decision to disarm the French forts of Verdun. Instead, it was decided to use their artillery and ammunition to better equip the field armies, as these would serve as a better defence. This decision in itself was a highly flawed one, even without considering the consequences on the Battle of Verdun, as the quantity of artillery pieces that was gained was relatively insufficient while their carriages made them unsuitable for field usage. The result was that Fort Douaumont only retained its 155mm and 75mm turret guns as these, unlike the four 75mm guns in the Bourges Casemate, were too difficult to remove. The result was that on the eve of the German attack, the fort was manned only by a small maintenance crew of only 56 troops and a few artillery men; a garrison that even consisted of no officers. The pictures above show the main barrack block, with the former being a period postcard in my collection and the latter being taken in April 2013.

"This journey is like a spiral staircase. Each tiny little step takes us closer to the top, closer to our center, closer to who we are meant to be"

This was taken at the top of the Monument to the Great Fire of London... once I had caught my breath!
