Japan Date:1932 Duration:2 min 19 sec Sound:Yes
Film opens showing a Japanese monument commemorating officers in the Russian-Japanese war. Commander of a small contingent of Japanese troops offers saki to his soldiers, before they march off into combat. They rush into trenches and begin firing at Chinese forces. Next, Japanese infantry are seen moving across vast barren lands, as some take up defensive positions behind those advancing, who also begin digging holes and setting up defenses after their advance. Chinese artillery shells explode close ahead of them. Soldiers in the Japanese front lines throw smoke canisters and dense white smoke is carried by the wind to the left and side of their positions. As the smoke dissipates, shells burst again, right in front of the Japanese lines. Immediately, after, the Japanese troops leave their defensive positions and charge forward. View of a small battlefield cemetery with posts marking the graves of Japanese soldiers.
