VERDUN by Georges Blond


Email this review


...was the price of glory and the single bloodiest battle of WW I. Two million men were engaged in it and only half survived. Mr. Blond uses the you-are-there approach and describes the battle from the standpoint of the common foot soldier of either side, with the soldiers' views of the grand strategists and the commanding officers. Mr. Blond's excellent book will stand out among the many on particular battles of this war.
