France and War
I know what you’re thinking … what does France have to say about war? Bear with me for a moment – Les Invalides was a surprisingly interesting museum. We went for a quick tour and ended up entirely enthralled and engaged.
Above is the Church of Les Invalides which holds Napolean’s ridiculously huge tomb.
The museum contains arms and armor from the Middle Ages to today. From the ornate to the purely functional.
One of the most interesting parts was learning about Charles de Gaulle, who worked to rally the french people against the Vichy government that was surrendering to the Nazis.
