Battle of Verdun was the first victory for UDF in Human-Mimic war since its start. It featured the first deployment of Combat Jacket equipped soldiers. It also featured the first account of human being infected by Alphas blood, namely Rita Vrataski. Because of this she became the most decorated soldier in all of the United Defense force notoriously known for killing over 1,000 mimic aliens in combat. The victory caused the mass manufacturing of exo-suits for the United Defense Force and the enlistment of thousand soldiers.
In reality, the human success in Verdun was all a ruse by the Omega Mimic. The Omega has let the humans win at Verdun in order to lure the them into invading Europe, where all the UDF armies would be ambushed and annihilated.

UDF announces the battle of Verdun as success and decorates Rita for her achievements in the fight.
