  • Short Summary

    Russian troops cross snowy terrain approaching Erzerum.

  • Description

    Capture of 'Ergenim' or 'Ergerim'. Quite likely this means Erzerum in Turkey; at the time the Ottoman Empire.

    Shot of men in coats; hoods; carrying rifles with bayonets on backs; walking across snow; toward camera; in single file. Can barely see faces inside. Great shot of same from distance; at side; line of soldiers moving along; silhouettes against hill covered w/ white; going high up on screen. Shot of the troops climbing up steep snowy hill - no longer in single file; but every which way; scrambling up all along the slope. Mountain region Looking over a town; pan across.

    Military. March. World War One
