9780199316892: Verdun: The Longest Battle of the Great War
Review:

A scholarly but readable account of something quite extraordinary. A valuable and valued addition to the growing library of WW1 literature. ( Books Monthly)

Impressive. ( Max Hastings, The Sunday Times)

Jankowski is abundantly qualified to present a new standard work on the subject. A well-respected scholar of French politics and culture, he has delved deeply into the contemporary sources from that nation, but he is no less at home in the copious German archives. The writing throughout is of the highest order, to a degree that may startle any reader with a dated stereotype of military history as a mechanical recounting of military formations. ( Books & Culture)

The first major study of the battle to appear in English for many years, and the first to draw fully on archival research on both sides... A thoughtful, original, and moving account, full of insights into the course of the fighting and its subsequent commemoration and impact. ( David Stevenson, author of Cataclysm: The First World War as Political Tragedy)

Jankowski has written a superb, definitive popular account of Verdun through the eyes of soldiers, military leaders, and citizens of the two nations. ( Publishers Weekly)

Descripción Oxford University Press Inc, United States, 2015. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. 238 x 162 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. At seven o clock in the morning on February 21, 1916, the ground in northern France began to shake. For the next ten hours, twelve hundred German guns showered shells on a salient in French lines. The massive weight of explosives collapsed dugouts, obliterated trenches, severed communication wires, and drove men mad. As the barrage lifted, German troops moved forward, darting from shell crater to shell crater. The battle of Verdun had begun. In Verdun, historian Paul Jankowski provides the definitive account of the iconic battle of World War I. A leading expert on the French past, Jankowski combines the best of traditional military history-its emphasis on leaders, plans, technology, and the contingency of combat-with the newer social and cultural approach, stressing the soldier s experience, the institutional structures of the military, and the impact of war on national memory. Unusually, this book draws on deep research in French and German archives; this mastery of sources in both languages gives Verdun unprecedented authority and scope. In many ways, Jankowski writes, the battle represents a conundrum. It has an almost unique status among the battles of the Great War; and yet, he argues, it was not decisive, sparked no political changes, and was not even the bloodiest episode of the conflict. It is said that Verdun made France, he writes; but the question should be, What did France make of Verdun? Over time, it proved to be the last great victory of French arms, standing on their own. And, for France and Germany, the battle would symbolize the terror of industrialized warfare, a technocratic Moloch devouring its children, where no advance or retreat was possible, yet national resources poured in ceaselessly, perpetuating slaughter indefinitely.
