THE FIRST WORLD WAR IN MARNE: AN AVIATION HISTORY


This exhibition offers an opportunity to learn about the leading figures in the world of aviation during the First World War. Thanks to the region’s position near the Front, aviation had a strong presence in Marne, which saw an increase in the number of sites able to accommodate more aircraft. Made up largely of flat terrain, the region’s geography lent itself to receiving reconnaissance, fighter and bomber squadrons whose numbers rose steadily between 1914 and 1918. After the initial mission to provide information through aerial reconnaissance, aviators soon distinguished themselves through their military feats.
Archive documents (photos, films, posters, prints and books) from the Châlons Library collections, lent by private individuals and ECPAD are on display.

Staged with support from the Municipal Libraries in partnership with L’Union newspaper journalist Hervé Chabaud and wartime aviation specialist Philippe Lagnier.
