Verdun

The Longest Battle of the Great War

Paul Jankowski

  • Jankowski offers a total history of a battle, mixing the old history with the new and the cold calculus of terrain gained and lives lost with the depths of human experience on both sides
  • One of the few histories of WWI to use German and French sources with equal facility
  • It straddles two generations of writing on the war, that emphasizing military history as a story of generals, and that emphasizing military history as a story of the common people
