7 Anon. Fort and Ossuary of Douaumont - The Baïonnettes Trench
St. Laurent FR Editions & Impressions Combier 1986 Paperback Very Good Illustrated by Color plates 
Light edge wear and scuffing of card covers. Page 3 has had a 1 inch strip cut out top edge. ; A bright, solid book. Text in English. This is a booklet produced for the travel industry with the interest in military battlefields ; Trade PB; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 16 pages; "Fort Douaumont (French Fort de Douaumont) was the largest and highest fort on the ring of 19 large defensive forts protecting the city of Verdun, France since the 1890s. However, by 1915 the French General Staff had concluded that even the best protected forts of Verdun could not resist bombardments from the German 420mm (16") Gamma guns. These newly deployed giant howitzers had easily taken out of action several large Belgian forts in August 1914. As a result, Fort Douaumont and other Verdun forts, being judged ineffective, had been partly disarmed and left virtually undefended since 1915. Consequently, on 25 February 1916, Fort Douaumont was entered and occupied without a fight by a small German raiding party comprising only 19 officers and 79 men. The easy fall of Fort Douaumont, only three days after the beginning of the Battle of Verdun, produced a deep shock in the French Army's command structure. It set the stage for the rest of a battle which lasted nine months, at enormous human costs. Douaumont was finally recaptured by three infantry divisions of the French Second Army, on 24 October 1916. This event brought closure to the Battle of Verdun in 1916." Wikipedia

St. Laurent FR Editions & Impressions Combier 1986 Paperback Very Good with no dust jacket Illustrated by Color plates

This is a booklet produced for the travel industry with the interest in military battlefields. ; Trade PB; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 16 pages; "Fort Vaux, located in Vaux-Devant-Damloup, Meuse, France, became the second Fort to fall in the Battle of Verdun. The first fort to fall had been Fort Douaumont which was virtually undefended and had been captured by a small German raiding party in February 1916 . Fort de Vaux , on the other hand , was fully garrisoned when it was attacked on June 2 by German assault troops. The fort had been modernized before 1914 with additional reinforced concrete top protection, like at Fort Douaumont, and thus did resist a German heavy artillery preparation which had included shelling by 16 inch howitzers. The superstructure of the fort had been heavily damaged but the deep interior corridors and stations remained intact and can still be seen in their original condition today." Wikipedia

Light edge wear to book & dust jacket, pages lightly yellowed as is common in British publications. ; A bright, solid book, dustjacket in Mylar, unclipped.; B&W Illustrations; 9.29 X 6.22 X 1.73 inches; 352 pages; "A rich blend of history and spirituality, adventure and politics, laced with the thread of black comedy familiar to readers of William Dalrymple’s previous work. In AD 587, two monks, John Moschos and Sophronius the Sophist, embarked on an extraordinary journey across the Byzantine world, from the shores of the Bosphorus to the sand dunes of Egypt. Their aim: to collect the wisdom of the sages and mystics of the Byzantine East before their fragile world shattered under the eruption of Islam. Almost 1500 years later, using the writings of John Moschos as his guide, William Dalrymple set off to retrace their footsteps. Taking in a civil war in Turkey, the ruins of Beirut, the tensions of the West Bank and a fundamentalist uprising in Egypt, William Dalrymple’s account is a stirring elegy to the dying civilisation of Eastern Christianity."
