Ruins (AUBERS)

Throughout the war, Aubers Ridge provided the German Army with a strategic advantage over the British positions twenty metres below it on Lys Plain. Dozens of concrete fortifications and bunkers, which can still be seen today from the RD 141 road, were built as part of an efficient network of observation and command posts and artillery emplacements which rendered the ridge impregnable.
