A soldier point of view
By Jack Anderson on July 7, 2019

The beginning of the documentary tells the beginning of World War I, from the perspective of Englishmen. That part is quite controversial in the sense that it tells a different story that you’d imagine. We can hear many men saying that they actually wanted to enlist and saw this war as something that has to be done, almost like an adventure. Many were too young to enlist and lied about their age. Young boys of only 15, 16 or 17 years old.

After 25 minutes, suddenly, the small black and white pictures transform into a full screen color version and you really feel immersed into History. That is the major reason of this documentary, written and directed by Peter Jackson. It is very interesting to see Jackson putting his technical effort into a documentary.

Back to History, as soon as the soldiers reach mainland Europe, the adventure evaporates into the dreadful reality of war. Putrefaction. Death. Bombs. Rats. Mustard gas. The poor soldiers have to exist through horrible human conditions.

The documentary does not talks slightly about any of the political aspects of the war. It only provides a view from the soldier’s perspective. And that is shocking enough on its own.

I give it 7 out of 10. Excellent.
