The Battle of Verdun was the longest battle of World War One. It was fought from February 21 to December 18, 1916, between the French and German armies around the town of Verdun, France. The battle involved more than two and a half million men and it developed in a space less that 8 sq miles and consisted of a ring of underground fortifications which the German forces attempted to capture.
Mortars became popular during WWI.This was on of the most feared weapons during the war. Soldiers were in fear of these while they just sat in their trenches. A mortar strike could happen at any time. I chose this pin because it shows the mortar up close.
