Verdun School Trips
The Verdun battlefield is dramatically and physically different to those on the Western Front. It straddles both sides of the River Meuse which flows through wonderful scenery and we gain some magnificent views from the dominating ridge lines that surround Verdun. This is a tour that explores many of the forts – destroyed and otherwise, miles of underground tunnels and gun positions, trenches and museums. We will discuss the valiant feats of French soldiery such as the not so prescient Colonel Driant’s defence at the Bois de Caures, the desperate fight to recapture the easily relinquished Fort Douaumont, the keystone of the Verdun defences and Major Reynal’s month-long isolated defence of Fort Vaux.
