SPAN STYLE Although the Meuse-Argonne Offensive, which began in late September 1918 and continued through to the Armistice. Maarten Otte is a long time resident of the Argonne, whose home is in Nantillois, situated between Montfaucon and Romagne. Growing up in the Netherlands with a fascination with the Great War, some eight years ago he settled in the Argonne, where he has developed his interest in the war, particularly the role of the United States. He has published books on Nantillois in 1918 and on US Medal of Honor winners. He now splits his time between writing on the war, conducting guided tours and assisting his wife in running their B&B in Nantillois.
