In this week’s episode, we step beyond the British sector of the Western Front to one of the most iconic French battlefields of the Great War – Verdun. Here we walk the ground between the ‘lost’ village of Fleury and visit the huge cemetery and ossuary at Douaumont. Our object is a commemorative memorial stone produced to help soldiers wounded in battles like Verdun.
Below are some books relating to the Battle of Verdun. If you click on the image it will take you to the Amazon Page for that book. Buying books this way helps support The Old Front Line. Thank you!
