 Christina Holstein

Christina Holstein is an independent, multilingual historian now based in Britain. A long period of residence in Luxembourg allowed her to develop her historical interests in a part of the Western Front which saw serious fighting in WWI but which is relatively unknown in the UK. She is fortunate in being able to research the battlefield with local people whose relatives either fought there or returned to live in the area after 1918, as well as with German historians and researchers. In addition to publishing four books on the Battle of Verdun, Christina regularly conducts tours of the battlefield for individuals or groups and, with her specialized knowledge of the terrain, has acted as consultant to a number of other historians and to the BBC.
