A memorial with information about military operations during the war stands at the end of the tree-lined central axis.
The cemetery has an impressive design which affords visitors views of the rolling surrounding countryside from all sides.
The walled court of honour with a mirror pool is located at the entrance. On the walls are the names of missing soldiers. A thirty-metre tower with a chapel provides a view over the large burial ground where the gravestones are arranged in parallel curves. The individual sections are only separated from each other by tree-lined grass paths. All the graves are marked by simple stone crosses.
American architects Shepley Bulfinch Richardson & Abbott, Boston, were commissioned with the architectonic design of the cemetery. Design of the green areas was carried out by Clarke, Rapuano and Halleran, New York.
