The grave of an unknown French soldier is seen at the "Tranchee des Baillonettes" (Trench of Bayonets) monument of Douaumont near Verdun, northeastern France, March 30, 2014. When the battlefield clearance parties began to search the Verdun area after the war, one party found what appeared to be a mass grave of men from one unit, the 137th Infantry Regiment and a line of some thirty nine bayonets protruding from the ground : each one marking the location of a body. The legend said the soldiers were killed in their "jumping off" trench when the intense German shelling literally buried them alive. All the bayonets have now been stolen. Hundreds of thousands of French and Germany soldiers were killed during the battle of Verdun. The year 2014 marks the 100th anniversary of the start of the First World War.
