This book covers the extremely important First World War battle of Verdun, one of the great battles of the war. Being only 96 pages long, it dosen't carry the depth of a bigger book, but what it does do is give a very good overview to the battle describing its key moments. This is the very strength of Osprey books: not big, but informative, to the point and great to look at. The book also gives good descriptions of other important aspects of the battle from its origins, opposing commanders, armies and plans ending with a aftermath and description of the battlefield today.
Overall, this book gives you a good, concise description of this famous battle. Its great to see First World War battles covered in the Osprey campaign series, more would be good.

A small book, so it's easy to carry, and contains as much information to give an visitor to the battlefield a fair idea of what occurred.

A clumsy panegerist of Petain is not able to describe nore than 10 % of the battle correctly. The rest, around 8 months of fights is not even scractched. A very poor mis-oriented book that finish up with an appeal to make Petaiin a hero when he was just not even at his post when the battle started (it took 2 days to find him in a Motel wth his maistress in Paris, 6 hours from Verdun) !

Could have been better this one.

Didn't inspire me to get out my other books on Verdun and reread.

Buy only after checking in shop first if it has to be.
