Europe Date:1916 Duration:57 sec Sound:NO SOUND
In live fire practice,during World War 1, two French soldiers walk forward and hurl hand grenades, as several others watch from behind protective barricades. The grenade throwers hit the ground as soon as they release them. Others duck down behind their barricades. New scene from atop a building in a town, an artillery shell is seen bursting and smoke rising near a building by a distant road. Two shell explosions are seen on a hillside and one releasing white smoke (possibly gas). French soldiers busy themselves at their fortified positions on high ground above a plain, while an officer slowly rotates a large finned mortar shell on its shaft, vertically. (WWI; WW1)
