Annual History Lecture to Feature Brandeis’ Paul Jankowski: The Battle of Verdun

February 25, 2015

Fairfield, Conn. - Sacred Heart University will host “A Paradoxical Icon of the Great War: Verdun, 1916” as its Department of History Annual Lecture on Thursday, March 19, at 5 p.m. in University Commons. Interminable, indecisive and seemingly pointless, the battle of Verdun quickly acquired its status as one of the three or four iconic battles of the Great War on the Western Front. But even before it ended, French and Germans began remembering it in ways often at odds with its realities and with one another. Any understanding of war should encompass the construction as well as the experience of battle, never confusing the two but always attentive to their rich and reciprocal ties. This talk offers a tentative attempt to do so.
