German troops on the firing line at the Eastern Front during the First World War.
Eastern Front Date:1916 Duration:17 sec Sound:NO SOUND
German troops man a firing line on the Eastern front in World War I. Opening scene shows German army officers and soldiers in a trench. They all wear cloth hats, except for one soldier wearing the new 1916 model steel helmet. They don't seem too concerned about possible enemy fire. An officer stands up, relatively exposed, and points out directions. Several soldiers lean forward in the trench, next to one manning a 1916 model MG-08/15 machine gun with wooden gunstock and a pistol grip (Maschinengewehr 08/15).The principal gunner is suddenly struck by an enemy bullet and falls back from the line. Two other soldiers seize the machine gun before it can fall from its position. (World War I; World War 1; WWI; WW1)
