Brussels & Wallonia in the Wars


2014 marked the centenary of the outbreak of the Great War and, while the fields of Flanders are the traditional focus of remembrance, Brussels and Wallonia contain an astonishing range of relics from both World Wars. These include museums, military cemeteries, battlefields, forts, the bunker used by Hitler to orchestrate France's capitulation in 1940, and the turnip field where British and German soldiers called a temporary truce and played history's most unlikely football match on Christmas Day, 1914.
