    The French city of Sedan has been a critical battleground in three major wars. In 1870, its fall bought down Napoleon III, in 1914 it saw some of the bloodiest battles of WW1, and in 1940 it was the location for the Nazis greatest victory. Join us to find out why Sedan is such an important site.
