The commemorations of the centenary of the Battle of Verdun, during which 300,000 French and German soldiers were killed, officially begin on February 21st. In a hundred years, the legacy of this battle, a symbol of the horror and absurdity of war, has profoundly changed, as historians Antoine Prost and Gerd Krumeich explain.
