If you've been to Ypres or the Somme you'll have been impressed. If you go to Verdun you will be staggered. Now, at last, you don't need a person to guide you round the most awe-inspiring battlefield in the world. All the information, including GPS coordinates, are here to show you the real Verdun - including the original trenches and tunnels. It is as if you are the first person to have found them, untouched after a century, with all the flotsam and jetsam scattered for your eyes only, still being discovered, still scattered with Great War detritus. This is a place for the wellington boots to be pulled on in the morning and only taken off before the trip to the pub in the evening.

Here is the book to get you to the very best battlefield sites in the Verdun area, along with the directions and coordinates. Here are also the warnings of what you will see and the lack of health and safety in their presentation!

Many people have had to rely on expensive personal guides to take them to these sites which flabbergasted them - now you can do this just with this book.

This pocket guide will show you the very best that Verdun has to offer - and, believe me - it has a lot to offer. Like others before you, it will take the nightmare that was Verdun and turn it into the dream of a battlefield visit.

About the Author

Stuart Townsend worked in psychiatry for thirty years before retiring in order to write his first book - Asylum Bound. After discovering the excitement of the Great War battlefields he decided to write about Verdun - a town which has the finest original trenches and tunnels on the Western Front - to help others explore this most precious place. He talks of little else now.
Stuart is married with three sons, and spends his time, when not in France, playing bridge, golf and watching rugby.
