Verdun


For almost ten long months the opposing forces fought in the area north of Verdun-sur-Meuse in north eastern France. Whilst the Somme is considered by the British to be the worst of the First World War battles (in terms of lives lost and the gruelling nature of the campaign), for the French and the Germans it is the battle of Verdun which has been burned into the collective consciousness.
