    From "Bailleul, située non loin de Cassel où Foch avait établi son quartier général, fut complètement détruite en 1918 par les Alliés, avec l'appui de l'aviation britannique qui cherchait à chasser l'ennemi qui avait pris la ville." Translation by google: Bailleul, located near Cassel where Foch had established his headquarters, was completely destroyed in 1918 by the Allies, with the support of the British air force that sought to drive out the enemy who had taken the city.
