Publisher's summary

If you want to discover the captivating history of the Battle of Verdun, then pay attention...

Today, the landscape is marked by shell craters, pillboxes, and empty trenches. Mother Nature has tried to reclaim the terrain; the trees have grown again, and the ground is covered by lush green grass, but despite her best efforts, the scars on the landscape still remain, a constant reminder of the devastation and misery that was experienced here more than a century ago.

And that is as it should be because the world should never forget what happened in this small corner of France. The battle scars on the landscape of Verdun are a testament to the horrors of a war that will live on in the collective memory of a nation forever, but they are also a memorial to the brave men who fought and died in the muddy fields defending their country and their countrymen from a foreign invader.

But Verdun was not just a battle; it was a seminal moment in French history. This is the battle that defines the First World War for France, but it cannot be viewed in isolation. It is part of a far greater story, influenced by the many events and battles that took place during this bloody time in Europe’s history.
