Paris Hill Town

The construction of a shadow Paris intended to lure the Germans had been initiated during WWI.

Details:

Radars didn’t exist back then and pilots flew and dropped their bombs on sight.
The plan was to build a shadow Capital City, North West from Paris (near Maison Laffitte), on a bend of the Seine similar to the one crossing Paris. The fake city was to include streets, train stations, plants and the project even started but was stopped with the signing of the Armistice with Germany in 1918.
