To honor Memorial Day, ARTINFO set out to compile a list of visually intriguing and moving war memorials in the United States. In doing so, we found that we could not overlook a number of important memorials that were erected in other countries and commemorate international wars. Take a look at some of the most dramatic monuments around the world, from the former Charleston Naval Base in South Carolina to Ataturk’s behemoth tomb in Ankara to the awe-inspiring Canadian National Vimy Memorial in France.
