Goofs

While British tanks after 1916 were painted brown/tan, the film is explicit that it does not name a battle, or a year that the various segments came from. Since the specific shots are not listed as being from a specific date or battle, they could be of either green, or tan. In addition, the Mark V tank at the Imperial War Museum, is green. See more »

The most important documentary you'll ever see
11 November 2018 | by iainfryer1234See all my reviews

100 years on from the Great War we cannot pretend to know what life was like serving in the trenches. This incredible film brings us as close to experiencing it as we are ever going to get.

It is harrowing, it is poignant, it is funny. Above all else this film is heartbreaking. No punch is pulled, no attempt is made to hide the brutality of war or the hardship of the common soldier.

Quite simply this amazing documentary should be made compulsory viewing in all schools and for every soapbox, warmongering politician that would send our youth into hell.
