Description: The fourth and final part of a series of videos examining World War 1. This extract opens with Germany's decision to launch a massive offensive at Verdun and what the result of this was including how soldiers needed to deal with the large number of deaths. It goes on to examine the state of the battlefields due to the effect of artillery shells and mud, and then looks briefly at soldiers who attempted to sustain minor wounds in order to be sent home. The more serious side of desertion is then examined in terms of people who disobeyed orders, people who suffered from shell-shock, and the court martial process. The final section looks at the French mutiny 1917 and the effect of the Russian Revolution before closign with the Armistice of November 11th 1918.

2004, 14 minutes. A wonderful, moving little film describing the aftermath of the Great War, the tragedy of the Pals Battalions on the Somme, the creation of the Imperial War Graves Commission, the building of the Cemeteries Abroad and the Memorials at home. The film also focusses on the work of Sir Edwin Lutyens, architect of the Cenotaph and the Memorial to the Missing of the Somme. It was made by the filmmaker and graphic artist Duncan Youel and historian Michael Stedman, and commissioned by the Donors to the Thiepval Project. It forms the second of three films on permanent display at the Thiepval Visitor Centre, Somme. The other two films are: The Somme in the Great War (19 minutes) and Thiepval (15 minutes). The Thiepval Project was a UK Charity established to enable the construction of the Visitor Centre at Thiepval on the battlefields of the Somme. The Visitor Centre was opened in September 2004 and is now operated under the auspices of the Conseil général de la Somme. The films are part of the permanent exhibition, designed by Cube3 and M2. The Clerkenwell-based Design Collective M2 included: Duncan Youel, Tony Lyons, David Edgell, Philippa Baile, Kate Stretton, Chris Grouthuizen and Lynette Eve. Archive material for the film was supplied courtesy of the Imperial War Museum London and the Commonwealth War Graves Commission. Narration is by Christopher Timothy.

The third of four videos detailing the experience of the First World War. The first half of this film looks at the Battle of the Somme (including the use of aircraft in warfare). It then goes on to look at trench warfare tactics including artillery and gas, and describes the extent of the injuries they caused and how the wounded were treated.
The Great War • 1 year ago
The German Stormtroops or Sturmbattalions were elite infantry soldiers hand picked to overcome enemy trenches. These men were the creme de la creme of the German Army consisting of Jäger, Pioneer and Mountain troops at first and later on specifically trained in infiltration tactics. They brought changes in the chain of command with them and were the predecessor of modern warfare as we know it. » HOW CAN I SUPPORT YOUR CHANNEL?

Snipers in World War I on the Western Front were used for psychological warfare in quieter times and during offensive to destroy key enemy positions like machine gun emplacements. While the French and the German Army started with rules and regulations for these troops, the British Army quickly had to adapt. » HOW CAN I SUPPORT YOUR CHANNEL?
