Episode 39: Verdun - Fury in the Desert

May 28, 2018

With terrible losses and plummeting morale, the French 2nd Army strains to hold the Right Bank after the fall of Fort Vaux. The German 5th Army continues its attacks, focusing on the Ouvrage de Thaiumont - Fleury - Fort Souville ridge line just three miles northeast of Verdun.

 

In the blazing heat of June, the French and Germans fight desperately in the artillery-plowed lunar landscape. The French fight to hold the line. The Germans fight to break it.
