The Battle of Verdun

We had a question about the Battle of Verdun this week. It was inspired when I came across this video on Veteran’s Day. A really fascinating look at the battle, WWI tactics, and life in France at the time. There are 4 parts to the video, so it runs about 35 minutes, but it is extremely compelling. Worth a watch if you’re a history buff. Also, I cannot recommend enough the book All Quiet on the Western Front. Perhaps the best war book I’ve ever read. Just heartbreaking, and really brings to life the horror of WWI. The paperback is 95 cents on Amazon. Get yourself a copy.
