Vauquois sounds like an amazing place.  Miles and miles of underground tunnels made during WWI.  Both the French and the Germans were building tunnels to fight each other.  After three years of a stalemate some of the miners from both sides decided not to work so hard and even warned each other when mines were going to go off.

Have you been there, Jim?  Do you know much about this?  I looked it up and there is a bit online but Wikipedia says Vauquois is a commune!!!
