|Advertisement for the 1871/1945 Chambers|
Before you immerse yourself in the three chambers devoted to three phases of French WWI efforts, do see the tomb of Napoleon Bonaparte. One of the most breath-taking memorial sights in the world (next to the American Tomb of the Unknowns in Arlington, Virginia and the Cenotaph in London, IMHO), the crypt of the man who was the first emperor of the French is truly awe-inspiring.
For a fine and brief introduction to the rest of the Invalides, do watch this film: http://youtu.be/elnbfmDi0T0.
