The Turcos' trail

Commentaire court EN : Circuit tombes et monuments des troupes françaises et allemandes présentes le 6 août
This trail is dedicated to those who laid down their lives rather than surrender. They were personified by Captain Suzzoni, who was bayoneted 17 times, and his brave regiment, of whom only 1 out of 10 survived the battle of Woerth-Froeschwiller. The Turcos were light infantry from Algeria, then a French colony. Imagine the surprise of the local inhabitants in those days seeing these dark skinned soldiers with their baggy trousers and brilliant jackets. They set up their camp a few metres away on the edge of the forest. The 7 km circuit is marked by red rings, the start is at the car park in Woerth post office, route de Dieffenbach.
