The Price of Glory: Verdun 1916; Revised Edition
1stPublisher: Penguin BooksFormat: Paperback
Verdun was the battle which lasted ten months; the battle in which at least 700,000 men fell, along a front of 15 miles; the battle whose aim was less to defeat the enemy than bleed him to death on the battleground whose once fertile terrain is even now “the nearest thing to desert in Europe”. This book is more than a chronicle of the facts of the battle. It is a sympathetic study of the men who fought there, and shows that Verdun is a key to understanding World War I - a key to the minds of those who waged it, to the traditions that bound it, and to the world that created them. This edition contains a new preface, and some new photographs.
