Verdun was, without a doubt, the most horrid battle of attrition that happened during the Great War with untold tens of thousands dying for virtually nothing. However, the coverage that it has in history here in the West is oddly understated and even muted to some inexplicable degree. Could it be only because only the French fought the Germans here? A poor reason for slim treatment in the history books.
