France Date:1917 Duration:2 min 4 sec Sound:NO SOUND
French troops in their frontline trenches in no man's land on the Western Front during World War 1. View of officer's wrist watch as they wait for 6AM, and then charge out of their trench. View of soldiers' feet leaving the trench. Another contingent, seen leaving a trench one at a time. They move quickly across the battle-scarred landscape. What appear to be gas clouds obscure the terrain. A soldier stands by a stone wall looking through binoculars. French soldiers run across the area, toward German positions,as a line of shells burst in the far background. Two French soldiers crouch beside a smoke generator spewing black smoke across the area. French troops lying prone on the battlefield. One rises to throw a hand grenade. A soldier afixed a rifle grenade to his weapon as a squad of others advance from a shell crater. Two of the advancing French soldiers carry rolls of barbed wire with them. (WWI. WW1.)
