The French continue to recover lost ground at Verdun. The tricolour flies once more over Fort Douaumont, and now Fort Vaux too is recovered. Fort Vaux was the scene of a desperate siege in June, surrendering four days after the defenders ran out of water. Its recovery now is anticlimactic, with advancing French troops finding that the Germans have abandoned it.
