Verdun: The longest battle of The Great War by Paul Jankowski
"February 1916: All month, fog, rain and snow had covered the Champagne and Argonne fronts. On the night of the 19th an east wind brought back stars and moonlight and, in the morning, cloudless blue skies. The next day, Monday the 21st, the earth began to shake. The Germans were attacking Verdun." from Chapter 1.
Paul Jankowski provides a definitive account of the Battle of Verdun, the longest battle of World War I.
