2. Compare Erich von Falkenhayns justification of the Verdun Offensive and Erich Ludendorff assessment of Verdun.
Your analysis will and weigh and measure the views of the advocate of the offensive actions with those of the corresponding critic. In addition to the sources provided, you will select a total of at least three additional primary and secondary sources related to your chosen focus. Consider the following guiding questions to help you in developing your analysis:
� What arguments are made for and against head-to-head offensive action on the Western Front?
� What strengths and weaknesses do you see in these various arguments?
� In your view, do these documents confirm or undermine the conventional wisdom that portrays commanders such as Haig and Falkenhayn as tactically uncreative and wasteful of their men�s lives?
Post any questions you have on the analysis papers to the General Questions discussion forum.
