06 Verdun, France

“In mid-September 1944, we entered Verdun.

Verdun is a grim city that enshrines memories of Attila the Hun, and is the great fortress-battlefield of the First World War. This martyr-city of world war is soaked with the blood of nearly one million men who fought four years of conflict under various flags.”
