    American army exercise at night - could easily be mistaken for World War One.

  • Description

    United States of America, U.S.A.

    Title: "No More War? PATHE cameraman secures thrilling pictures of night attack during U.S. army manoeuvres".

    Army exercise at night - looks like World War One Battle.

    M/S of a troop of soldiers dressed in fatigues marching through undergrowth and clouds of smoke, one of the men half carries an 'injured' soldier. Great M/S of three soldiers firing and reloading a machine gun; the gun and their helmets are silhouetted against the light and smoke from a flare. M/S of the gun being fired.

    L/S of a troop of soldiers crossing a wooden bridge, once again they are silhouetted against the light and smoke coming from a flare - very spectacular! M/S of men crossing the bridge just as an explosion occurs in the background. More shots of men crossing the bridge. More shots of explosions behind the bridge.
