Battlefields of Verdun: Here Lies the Remains of the Many Unsung Heroes
by Vernese McKoy Carter The year is 1963. A young American couple is posted to a French village close to Verdun, the World War I site of one of the worlds most terrible battles. Here Anna finds herself teaching English and history to American soldiers soon to ship out to another war, in Vietnam. The irony finds Anna praying that the stories of war be heard from those who have experienced the atrocities of the battlefields, and that man will someday realize that wars never bring peace.
