The Verdun Affair
by Nick Dybek
In 1921, two young Americans meet in Verdun, the city in France where one of the most devastating battles of the war was waged. Each is keeping a secret; each has been shaken by the horrors of war. From the bone-strewn fields of Verdun to the bombed-out cafés of Paris, from the riot-torn streets of Bologna to the riotous parties of 1950s Hollywood, The Verdun Affair is a riveting tale of romance, grief, and the far-reaching consequences of a single lie.
