With those who were there

A most profoundly moving World War One documentary: They shall not grow old. And we must never forget.

This is history as real as being present. What a lesson for all humanity.

Peter Jackson has triumphed in restoring 100 year old black and white grainy silent footage with digital technology, combining it with sound and lip read actors voices, and first hand veteran accounts taken from later interviews. The Great War legacy brought home like never before.

The true horror laid bare. Life in the trenches. Bullets and shells. Ordinary young men, extraordinarily brave.

Let their memory be honoured. Let their sacrifice bring peace. Let warlords be cornered most quickly.
