Read in January, 1996

If you only ever want to read about one specific battle of the Great War [already believing that you know the gist of what happened] then this book is for you. it is superbly detailed, yet sometimes over-biased to the French. It details the whole of this terrible/bloody battle and relives the horrors that many of us are all too familiar with.

As a visitor to the battlefields surrounding Verdun I can honestly say that this book is not only an excellent narrative, but also a fantastic guide.
