THE AMERICAINS AT THE CHEMIN DES DAMES

The American cemetery « Oise-Aisne » of Seringes-Nesles is the second (in terms of number of graves) military cemetery from WWII in Europe.

In this necropolis lye the bodies of 6,012 war victims from the USA, fallen during WWI. Most of them died during the fights in the surroundings, in the north of the river (Aisne) and beyond. Furthermore, the names of 241 soldiers whose bodies weren’t found or identified are written on the walls of the chapel, in fond of the cemetery.

A bronze rosette is affixed next to the departed whose bodies were later found; 597 steles indicate the « unknown » soldiers’ graves.

The graves from WWI and WWII cemeteries represent approximately 39% of the initial graves. The mortal remains of the other victims were brought back to their home countries on their close relatives’ demand.
A white marble stele points out every grave: the Star of David for the Jewish combatants and a Latin cross for the others. The names of the soldiers reported missing who died in the region are written in the cemetery.
