Well worth 7+ minutes of your time.


Rare German World War I footage.

I'll just leave this here for now without too much verbiage.  Unique look at the Great War for sure, but also surprisingly stirring stuff on a Monday afternoon that to me, could represent soldiers from any country made to experience war.

Post Script:

Maybe it was the music that got to me...  Seeing the almost eerie realistic color footage of action at the front, but also seeing those crowds of young people marching to war.  Many never to return.
