American Army field hospital inside ruins of church. France. 1918. This church looks to be quite large and, at one time, quite grand. I wish, with photos like these, we knew more details about the church, or at least the name/location of it. I wonder if it was repaired or destroyed after the war? Was it also damaged by the invading German forces during World War II? The endless questions that could be answered if one simply had a name or location….
