Today, you began one of the bloodiest and longest battles in history. Let this be a reminder to always seek peace whenever possible, or else pay the price in the blood of our soldiers...


 

Today in 1916, the Battle of Verdun began with a massive German artillery barrage on French defenses. They believed it would be a quick victory. However, the French refused to let them pass. The battle would go on to last around 11 months.
