Primarily famous outside of France for the Maginot Line, this is decent monument to Maginot. There's a small area on the side of the road to pull over if you want to get out and take pictures up close. Otherwise, you can a good sense of it from the road as it's right next to it.

Located along the main road toward the WWI museum you can't miss the Maginot Monument. There is a statue and small description of what he did for France after WWI. It's worth a short stop to check it out.

We felt the monument to Maginot was in need of attention with weeds growing among the paving and a good cleaning warranted. And it lacks the impact of nearby sites, such as Le Homme Mort, but the heroic stance is more typical of the times perhaps. Not much parking here and the road is busy, so care should be taken.

This powerful monument stands well and makes one think and research this great person of history .As always these less grandiose features can be more impressive.

This is an interesting enough monument, and larger than many on the battlefield but before going there try reading a little bit about Andre Maginot. He was a Junior Minister of War in 1914 but resigned and enlisted as an ordinary soldier - not something I suspect you see in the 21st century. The rest of his story is also interesting and continues after the war for although he fought at Verdun, and was wounded, he survived the conflict to resume his career. Quelle Homme!

Bigger then I expected and very photogenic. In an area rich with monuments and memorials, this one does have an interesting back-story.

Worth a few pictures. Beautiful but along the road. Not a must stop. We happened on it and noticed the famous name.

This magnificent monument can't be missed on a way from Verdun to Douaumont. There is not too much else to see around, but it is worth it to stop for a while.

The monument itself is an interesting site for what happened to Andre Maginot, but that is all that is there.
