"La Tranchée faisait de la guerre un travail de manoeuvre, des guerriers les journaliers de la mort,usés jusqu'a la corde par un quotidien sanglant E. JUNGER" The Battle of Verdun was one of the largest battles of the First World War on the Western Front between the German and French armies. The battle took place on the hills north of Verdun-sur-Meuse in north-eastern France. The German 5th Army attacked the defences of the Région Fortifiée de Verdun (RFV) and those of the Second Army garrisons on the right bank of the Meuse, intending to rapidly capture the Côtes de Meuse (Meuse Heights), from which Verdun could be overlooked and bombarded with observed artillery fire. The Battle ended in a French victory, but at a cost of many hundreds of thousands of lives.
