Explosive remnants of war / UXO
War of 1870
About 1,000,000 shells used, more than half of which were in the Paris region.
World War I
1,455,000,000 shells fired along 700 km of front lines, i.e. about 15 million metric tons of metal and explosives. 10 to 30% of them did not detonate correctly. 2 to 3% of these munitions are chemical.
World War II
22% of bombs dropped during WWII were dropped over France, i.e. approximately 600,000 metric tons, 10% of which did not detonate. To this are added several million shells fired from June 1944 to January 1945.
