The tragedy of La Ferté

After the German army broke through the French lines at Sedan, the left flank of the moving army had to be secured. The French fort of La Ferté, part of the Maginot Line Defense works, was subject to this consolidation.
But the Germans move with ulterior motives, as to them capturing a Maginot Line fort in the first week of the offensive had a huge propaganda value. Tour guide Richard Tucker shows Indy the grounds of a modern tragedy, where French soldiers gave their lives.
