The Road to Verdun
France, Nationalism and the First World WarBook - 2003
A vivid account of the generals' planning and the troops' suffering in the largest, longest and bloodiest battle of World War I. It challenges the narrow horizons of military history and should challenge the reader's view of France, and the very nature of warfare.
