The Zone Rouge is a 42,000-acre area of France that was No Man’s Land in World War I. A century after that global conflict it remains littered with unexploded ordnance and too hazardous for human habitation. A short video by Dominique van Olm.


“A century on from WW1, 100 years of work remains to clear munitions,” Claudia Wyatt, Reuters
