There have been others since e.g. 'Verdun' by David Mason (), and 'Verdun ' by Malcolm Brown (), but I think Horne's book stands tall. I do believe that Pen and Sword have it on their list.

Verdun was a series of 28 forts great and small built on high ground (> meters) overlooking the valley of the Meuse River. They had been modernized before the war and equipped with heavy artillery. However, under Joffre, fortresses were no longer considered in vogue and they had pretty much been abandoned and disarmed.

Here is an excellent comic strip in 3 volumes depicting the Battle of Verdun during the war. The first volume focuses on the failures of Marshal Joffre, well known for his ogre's appetite, who stubbornly refuses to believe in a German offensive east of the war front, despite all the efforts of the war minister, the famous General Gallieni, the winner of the battle of the Marne.
