Summary
The bitter battle between the French and Germans over the French fortress of Verdun from February 1916 until November 1916 is considered the greatest battle of World War I. Characterized by the massive use of artillery, the Battle of Verdun incurred high casualties - over 400,000 French and German soldiers each. The French, led by General Philippe Petain, ultimately held the region. This clip shows German soldiers preparing to rush the French lines at Verdun
