Opening scene shows American troops in the far distance, moving across open terrain in France during World War I. Some are on a road closer to the camera position. Next, an American unit, with horses and wagons, is seen pausing to reorganize its gear and supplies. View, again, of the American troops in the far distance, with smoke rising from a shell strike near them. More views of shells striking and white smoke spreading low across the terrain. Troops on horeseback and in wagons, coming from the shelled area along the road below the camera position. Multiple shell bursts striking closer to the camera.
Suddenly, American troops with their wagons begin to move the opposite direction along the road (towards the area being shelled). One shell strikes right on the road, and other nearby. Scene shifts to group of American soldiers firing a Hotchkiss M1914 machine gun.
