Attichy is a commune in the Oise department in northern France.
The current village has a delightful Boulangerie, a lovely library with a detailed history during the first and second world war, an extensive hospital for the elderly, a very economic Pizeria and Le Marie with limited tourist information. During the second world war, the Americans established a Prisoner of War camp at Attichy (Chelles).
We climbed an immense hill in the mist, and proceeding by a devious route eventually bustled into Attichy, where we found a large and dirty inn containing nothing but some bread and jam.

"During my ministry, the devil passed from the body of the possessed person and entered into mine" he wrote to a friend, the Jesuit father Achille Doni d'Attichy.
Shopkeepers and peasants of Celles, of Conde, of Attichy, along the way to Berry-au-Bac and from Billy to Sermoise, all those who have now fled from the Valley of the Vesle and the valley of the Aisne had just the same story to tell -- monotonous, yet awful because of its tragedy.
