Description
Originally published in 1962 and continuously in print ever since, this is the second book in a landmark trilogy that, along with The Fall of Paris and To Lose a Battle, tells the story of the great crises in the rivalry between France and Germany. The battle of Verdun lasted ten months, during which at least 700,000 men fell along a 15-mile front; the aim was less to defeat the enemy than to bleed him to death. It was a battleground whose once fertile terrain even now resembles a haunted wilderness. Alistair Horne's classic work—a profoundly moving, sympathetic study of the battle and the men who fought there—shows that Verdun is a key to understanding World War I, including the minds of those who waged it, the traditions that bound them, and the world that gave them the opportunity.

"Compellingly told.... Alastair Horne uses contemporary accounts from both sides to build up a picture of heroism, mistakes, even farce."—Sunday Telegraph (London)
