Askat didn’t unearth this find by chance. An urban explorer with a passion for military history, he regularly researched into the local area and studied the journals of fallen soldiers. And after months of looking, he discovered that there was something remarkable hidden deep within the rural north of France.

Askat, moreover, is a keen photographer. So, one day he picked up his camera along with the journals and headed out into the countryside. He knew roughly where he was going and what he was looking for. But would he be able to locate the site?
