Talk by Antoine Prost and Gerd Krumeich
To mark the publication of their book, Verdun 1916, by Tallandier, Professors Antoine Prost and Gerd Krumeich are giving a talk at the Verdun Memorial Museum. Written by these two leading historians of the Great War, one German and the other French, their description of the most famous of all battles compares and contrasts the two points of view for the first time.

The talk will be given in the museum auditorium on the first floor.
It will be followed by a book signing.
