The battle of verdun was a major battle in WW 1 between Germany and France.   It lasted for almost 10 months.  This blog is of when me and my buddy Rainer visted the battlefield back in Feb 07.  Many forts and trenches still remain today.  This is the first in my battlefields blog series.  Later ones will be,  Ypres and flanders fields in Belgium, Battle of the Somme and Vimy ridge in France, Wateloo, Battle of the bulge, Fort Eban Emael in Belgium, and then the Normandy Beaches.

Yeah that was the third time I've been there, and still find new and different things. We found trenches and bunkers out in the forest and stuff like that.
