The pro’s view :-)
When you first arrive, I recommend going to the top of the little mound with its proud statue of a caribou. The viewpoint diagram will help you get your bearings, have an overall view of the site and see the maze of trenches and the ground pitted with shell holes. Be sure to walk along the many footpaths to see the little cemeteries.
