At Verdun the French fightback continues. After recovering Fort Douaumont and Fort Vaux, the French are now pushing the Germans back towards the positions they occupied at the start of the battle in February. Today they recapture the villages of Louvemont and Bezonvaux, both lost in the battle’s early days. The villages little more than rubble now and the French have lost many men in their recapture, but they have now pushed the frontline 3 kilometres beyond Fort Douaumont. They can rest assured now that Verdun is safe from any return to the offensive by the Germans.
