École Militaire de Paris

This military complex was one of the German strongholds during the Battle of Paris (19-25 August 1944). Its German garrison numbered only 470 soldiers on 25 August 1944, after heavy fighting. The Forces Françaises de l'Intérieur (FFI) and 2e Division Blindée also lost many men in the fighting for the École Militaire.
