Fort Douaumont's most significant part in the battle came after 9 months of fighting, in October 1916 when, following a highly successful bombardment by the French forces, the German forces were compelled to retreat from the Fort, or what was left of it. During the assault French forces fired 240,000 grenades per day over 3 days.
