Shooting The Somme, How an Iconic Film Was Faked, Uncovering a Century of Controversy

READ THE FULL REVIEW

Making a film of battle in 1916 and taking it direct to cinemas before the battle had ended was groundbreaking. The cameramen filmed with the troops and captured the dirt and horror of modern warfare, but after its acclaimed first screenings, doubts began to emerge as to the honesty of the film, producing a century of controversy. – Highly Recommended
