ot63 : "It makes no difference what men think of war, said the judge. War endures. As well ask men what they think of stone. War was always here. Before man was, war waited for him. The ultimate trade awaiting its ultimate practitioner. That is the way it was and will be. That way and not some other way."

R : As related by Peter Hart in The Great War: We automatically mounted the machine gun for action. Then like animals we burrowed into the earth as if trying to find protection deep in its bosom. Something struck my back where I carried my gas mask, but I did not pay attention to it. A steel splinter broke the handle of my spade and another knocked the remains out of my hand. I kept digging with my bare hands, ducking my head every time a shell exploded nearby. A boy to my side was hit in the arm and cried out for help. I crawled over to him, ripped the sleeves of his coat and shirt open and started to bind the bleeding part. The gas was so thick now I could hardly discern what I was doing. My eyes began to water and I felt as if I would choke. I reached for my gas mask, pulled it out of its container – then noticed to my horror that a splinter had gone through it leaving a large hole. I had seen death thousands of times, stared it in the face, but never experienced the fear I felt then. Immediately I reverted to the primitive. I felt like an animal cornered by hunters. With the instinct of self-preservations uppermost, my eyes fell on the boy whose arm I had bandaged. Somehow he had managed to put the gas mask on his face with his one good arm. I leapt at him and in the next moment had ripped the gas mask from his face. With a feeble gesture he tried to wrench it from my grasp; then fell back exhausted. The last thing I saw before putting on the mask were his pleading eyes.

torugita johnson : I like to watch shit like this to remind myself what a good life I have

Essence of Banana : This is what I imagine when I envision Hell. Surrounded by death and sorrow. The land is barren and blood-soaked, and ashes have blocked out the sun. The horizon is etched with the skeletons of trees and corpses. A beast howls in the distance, a mixture of fear and rage. The beast is human.

Slopkinz Slopkinz : The shot of the guy with the flamethrower chasing those troops was intense.

Gabenslair _ : Is this what PTSD is like?

FloodPower : The watermark makes it a bit tricky to immerse yourself in this.

Clayton Hanson : If Hell exists, surely it should be a battle field.

lamota14 : These Battlefield 1 trailers are getting kinda creepy...

Dead Pundy : i knew war was brutal. but this gives me a whole new perspective

Mina V : Not gonna lie this is one of the most unsettling things I've ever seen.

LurkerAnonymous : We are the eldritch horror...

3rdOfficerTaylor : That first video is actually WW2...

hotshot785 : man these men are so PRIVILEGED

Drachenjager : This has gotta be my favorite WW1 video now. After learning about the hellish experiences of the western front I've been a little infatuated with understanding the horror of that conflict. It's hard to wrap one's head around the pure terror of rotting corpses and gas, the endless madness of subjection to artillery barrage. 1914-18 may have been the single most disgustingly terrifying moment for soldiers in world history. Perhaps the closest humans have been to hell on earth outside of literal torture.

Conde : Video should be shown to every history class studying the First World War.

Thatfuckingduck : Now compare this to Battlefield 1 trailer, it's a disgrace

Kapn Brikkfist Gutsmasha : This still aint more horrible then getting my gender assumed or being denied safe-spaces from harsh-words.

Robert NoSpam : Not all was shell shock. Some are classic nerve agent damage. Chemical poisoning is brutal. The last large scale use in a civil war was Iraq. The same country that had no (wink, wink) WMD.

TheTreebrook : There is a good reason the video has a red filter...

Henrik Knudsen : Most disturbing is not seing the dead nor the combat. But those patients who lost a jaw or have PTSD. Mostly those with PTSD, I can't imagine how they would ever come to feel human again.

Irondome : "Women have always been the primary victims of war." - Hillary Clinton

Press Secretary Alex Jones : If you look at 0:55 when his hand is finally forced open you can see that his nails have torn and dug into the palm of his hand.

Dome : Truly horrific. I can't even imagine fighting in a war like this.

?????? ?????? : Caitlyn Jenner is definitely braver than anyone.

Jimmy J. Rustle : The greatest thing that ever happened during WWI was that it ended

Cheeki Breeki : So much suffering. But for what?

Sturm The Regulator : Videos like this should be required viewing for anyone joining the military, especially combat arms jobs. It would turn away many who are simply unprepared for the horrors of war. Yes, seeing a man violently die in a video is still not the same as being there witnessing it yourself, but being able to harden your heart and steel your mind as much as possible BEFORE you go into combat where it happens for real is very important. I believe doing so would significantly decrease instances of PTSD in mild to moderate forms. The terribly sad sorts of extreme mental breakdown seen is this video may never be curable, but we can at least try to prevent the mind from degenerating into such a state.

123killerk2007 : Women have always been the primary victims of war. -Hillary Clinton

farklemybrainsout : WHAT DOES CAITLYN JENNER HAVE TO DO WITH WW1????

justification1979 : They say that war is hell, but hell is only a word. The reality is so much worse than what can properly be put into words.

UntitledKirk : Don't ever take this down. It's incredible.

LiterallyPuni : "Women have always been the primary victims of war. Women lose their husbands, their fathers, their sons in combat." -Hillary Clinton

Indian Chief Aaron Gulley : But like, What about the wage gap?

SuperKonjac : Btw does someone have the source for the footage at 7:37 ? Quite horrifying really.

Augusto Poliche : amazing video, horror.

Jakov : Totally insane to see that guy near the end completely break at seeing his army hat

Captain Ahab : And people say they have PTSD from something they read on the internet when stuff like this went (and still does) go on. Shit son.

Alexander Johnson : That music was nice. Calming. But not really. More like crazy nightmare fuel.

TheRaackMan : 7:39 That poor guy, I presume the thought of going back "there" is what causes him to break down like that and cower from the cap. I know I would dread having to go through such an experience more than once, or even once.

danhi333 : This demonic groaning going on throughout the video is beyond the pale of disturbing

Cezary Jóźwiak : Lustmord - Black Star

SuperKonjac : Now watch this on acid

Kubloo : WHO'S READY FOR BATTLEFIELD 1?!?

RiagTehGreat : i wish i was as brave as caitlyn jenner

john youman : Remember people! Women have always been the primary victims of war!

BossMadOne : Poor white people being killed in wars for rich white men while minorities complain their benefits isn't increasing this year.

AzureDrag0n1 : At my feet two unlucky creatures rolled the floor in misery. Their clothes and hands, their entire bodies were on fire. They were living torches. [The next day] In front of us on the floor the two I had witnessed ablaze, lay rattling. They were so unrecognisably mutilated that we could not decide on their identities. Their skin was black entirely. One of them died that same night. In a fit of insanity the other hummed a tune from his childhood, talked to his wife and his mother and spoke of his village. Tears were in our eyes....

LawdyGawd : I knew a simple soldier boy Who grinned at life in empty joy, Slept soundly through the lonesome dark, And whistled early with the lark. In winter trenches, cowed and glum, With crumps and lice and lack of rum, He put a bullet through his brain. No one spoke of him again. You smug-faced crowds with kindling eye Who cheer when soldier lads march by, Sneak home and pray you'll never know The hell where youth and laughter go.

Og Nargual : >White privilege
