Battle of Stonne took place from 14th to 25th of May 1940., and is nicknamed the “Verdun of 1940”. A German victory, it was one of the more – if not the most – important battles of the western campaign. While German forces would end up capturing Stonne, battle itself was nevertheless French defensive victory.
