Horrible guerre ! Sur le champ de bataille de Verdun, un immense cimetière témoigne encore de la violence des combats qui s’y sont déroulés. 700 000 soldats français et allemands sont tombés sur un front de 30 kilomètres. Des millions d’obus ont complètement bouleversé le terrain et détruit des villages entiers. On trouve encore aujourd’hui de nombreuses traces de ces combats.
