The Price Of Glory Verdun 1916: Verdun 1916/Alistair Horne. Penguin Books. Softcover. New 04/10/1993. ISBN 0140170413 (RRP £12.99)
The battle of Verdun lasted ten months, during which time at least 700,000 men fell, along a front of fifteen miles. This profoundly moving, sympathetic study of the battle and the men who fought there, shows that Verdun is a key to understanding the First World War, through the minds of those who waged it, the traditions that bound them and the world that gave them the opportunity.
