FROM THE MARNE TO VERDUN A French Officer’s Diary

£19.99 £5.99

Charles Delvert was born in Paris in 1879. During the First World War he rose to the rank of captain in the French army and served with great distinction at the front, in particular during the Battle of Verdun where his company mounted a heroic defence of Fort Vaux. His account is essential reading for anyone who is keen to gain a direct insight into the Great War from the French soldier’s point of view, and it bears comparison with the best-known English and German memoirs and journals of the Great War.
