Laon before the English invaded. The town has not been spared by war
and has been destroyed twice: " In 1814, during the battle of
Craonne which opposed the Prussians and Napoleon's army, Napoleon
chose to sleep in Corbeny. " A hundred years later in 1914, the
first World war raged : The neighbouring village of Craonne was
literally wiped off the map;
