Brave men who gave their lives for their countries? This war started for no reason and it was fought for no reason and over half the people in ww1 were forced to fight against their will

Dude, AWESOME JOB! As an historian I have to say, AWESOME JOB!!
With the anniversary of Verdun coming up I was planning to post every day a movie scene to create a sort of timeline.
But yours is better! ;) I had about the same movies in mind.
To bad it starts in 1915...
Therefore I have some suggestions for you. Maybe you can use them...

1) For 1914. The opening scene from "Joyeux noël" (Merry Christmas).
This movie is about the Christmas truce in 1914, somewhere in December.
In the beginning it shows a French Lieutenant and his aide de camp. At the end two Scottish brothers.
It has a battle scene with French and Scottish troops. (See link below and enjoy )

2) For 1915. The end scene from "My boy Jack".
Now the title says "Somme over the top", but this is not correct. This movie is about Jack Kipling, who fought with the Irish Guards at the battle of Loos. He died on 27 September 1915.
"Harry Potter" is Kipling. ;)

Lost Battalion: By far Rick Schroeder's best role ever. Maj. Whittelsea was a real hero.

A good concept, but What about Gallipoli with Mel Gibson (very sad ending) and The Light Horsemen? And the one about Rudyard KIplings son?
