14-18 in Val de Sambre

After Liège and Mons, our region was the theatre of great combats and human dramas that are often forgotten. All the communities bordering Sambre, from Sambreville to Maubeuge, share a common history. Between 22 August and 7 September, they were the scene of bloody battles, with the destruction of countless houses, farms, villages and bridges.
