The Battle of Verdun is considered the greatest and lengthiest in world history. Never before or since has there been such a lengthy battle, involving so many men, situated on such a tiny piece of land. The battle, which lasted from the 21st of February 1916 until the 19th of December 1916 caused over an estimated 700000 casualties (dead, wounded and missing). Verdun is certainly one the most important battles in the French military history.
