    French troops attacking from trenches. Western Front.

  • Description

    Actual battle film - French troops attacking from trenches.

    Good despite poor quality. French are running through burnt forest. German prisoners; with French guards; walk run or scramble through forest.

    MS prisoners and guard pose for picture. Back to the 'onslaught' - soldiers run by in foreground; others are doing same in background.

    Stark black tree in foreground and many burnt trees in background; also a grave with a cross on it which the men are running past.

    This really gives a good idea of the decimated battlefields of the Western Front. Scary stuff.

    Also on ON 403 P.
