If you go to Google Earth and use the "street view" function with a simulation that you are standing atop the Butte de Vauquois, you will see something like this (mp4). That view gives a good idea of how the butte commanded a view of the entire countryside for miles around.

Here was an ealy attempt at a 3D model using Sketchfab.

I created another kind of 3D view of Vauquois using Arcgis online. Sometimes it takes a while to load. Here is a smaller embedded version

Finally, here is an overview of Vauquois from Arcgis. The top of the butte is still largely bared; the sides have filled in with trees.
