The Chateau was captured along with the nearby village of Estrées early in 1914 and was used as a regional headquarters by German forces. The Allies made it a priority to recapture it, which they did in the autumn before losing it again in 1915. A second libreation in the summer of 1916 convinced the Germans that the fortified castle could not be held safely and in September 1916 the building was destroyed by heavy artillery bombardment and the nearby commune being captured again. The area was finally liberated by Australian troops in 1918.
