covers from Monaco

On Monday I got not only two postcards but also two covers from Monaco.

Stamps:
Centenary of the Battle of Chemin des Dames (issued 10-03-2017)
The Battle of Chemin des Dames, also known as Second Battle of the Aisne, was fought between the German Empire and France in April and May 1917. The battle began as part of a meticulously planned Franco-British offensive, but had to be abandoned after many French divisions mutinied and ended with a tactical victory of the German Empire.
Prince Louis II of Monaco volunteered to serve in the French Army in August 1914 and also fought in the Battle of Chemin des Dames.

International Dog Show (issued 27-02-2017)
