Verdun battle Private Guided Tour : History
The Battle of Verdun was one of the major battles during the World War 1 on the Western Front. It was fought between the German and French armies in 1916, on hilly terrain north of the city of Verdun.
Verdun resulted in 698,000 deaths (362,000 French and 336,000 German combatants), an average of 70,000 deaths for each of the ten months of the battle…
It was the longest and one of the most devastating battles in the World War 1 and the history of warfare. Verdun was primarily an artillery battle: a total of about 40 million artillery shells were exchanged, leaving behind millions of overlapping shell craters that are still partly visible.
In both France and Germany, Verdun has come to represent the horrors of war, like the Battle of the Somme in the British consciousness. British military historian Major General Julian Thompson has referred to Verdun as “France’s Stalingrad”.
