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

Son of the West : 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.

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

Gabenslair _ : Is this what PTSD is like?

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

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

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

hotshot785 : man these men are so PRIVILEGED

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

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

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

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

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

LurkerAnonymous : We are the eldritch horror...

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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

RiagTehGreat : i wish i was as brave as caitlyn jenner

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.

Indian Chief Running Dildo : But like, What about the wage gap?

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

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

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

Augusto Poliche : amazing video, horror.

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.

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

Alex Bynum : Yeah dude Hitler refused to use the nerve gas because he deemed it inhumane.

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

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

Cezary Jóźwiak : Lustmord - Black Star

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

SuperKonjac : Now watch this on acid

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

Og Nargual : >White privilege

Garlic Bread : nothing on this scale is ever going to happen again because the most lethal and disturbing means of weaponry in war would either be something we've seen already or a nuclear strike. the reason this is so disturbing is because nobody expected it to be this terrible. these guys have never seen half of the technology that was used in this war and the mental and physical disorders that were the result of fighting in it were unheard of. there is no longer any mystery to modern day war, which brings even the slightest bit of comfort knowing you will absolutely never endure what these men have.

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