Vauquois

Description: Map of the site where the Battle of Vauquois took place. The extensive tunnel system in the area is depicted. This battle took place during World War I from 1914-1918.

The 36th and 90th National Guard Units, from Texas, were also involved in the offensive. There is no text on the map. The topography is marked in meters.
