La Voie Sacree

2/7/2015 - 2/14/2015

During the Battle of Verdun, French troops were running dangerously low on supplies and their defeat seemed imminent. French General, Philippe Petain stepped in and had a road made. This road, known as the Voie Sacree or the Sacred Way, enabled the French to gain the supplies needed to hold their ground and ultimately defeat the Germans.
