This epic ten–month battle claimed 750,000 German and French lives. 1916 was a year of killing. The British remember the Somme but earlier in the year the heart of the French army was ripped out by the Germans at Verdun. The garrison city in north–eastern France was the focus of a massive German attack; the French fought back ferociously, leading to a battle that would permanently scar the French psyche. Using original French sources and eye–witness accounts from both sides, Malcolm Brown brings the horror of Verdun into vivid focus.
Published in association with the Imperial War Museum.
