My grandfather, was an American Doctor who was responsible for setting up the French Field Hospitals, during WWI .Looking at him in his uniform was so impressionable as a child. His love of his life died in his arms, she was a French nurse, named MaryAnne. This experience changed his emotional well being, he was always kind and loving to his 5 grandchildren but had a broken heart his entire life. Peace and Light to your spirt, Dr. Norman James Quinn, Sr.
Hello, candy. How are you doing today?
The Lost Battalion is one of the best telemovies ever made. I remember watching it back in 2001 on TV and I was blown away by it, and it still holds up well even today. It captures the hell of WW1 and Meuse-Argonne Offensive masterfully. The events that occurred at the Meuse-Argonne Offensive showed the world that America was a force not to be reckoned with. Maj. Charles W. Whittlesey and his men were extraordinary brave individuals. Ricky Schroder did an excellent job as Maj. Charles W. Whittlesey, a great performance by him.
@Frank Ironically, buying a whopper in Hanoi would eventually be done anyway without the war. It was because of Deng Xiaoping's privatizations and opening up of china and communist asia to world trade.
@Lashar Shar 58000 US dead, thousands more scarred for life physically and/or mentally. Possibly millions of Vietnamese dead and/or affected by Agent Orange, etc.. Not worth the ability to buy a "Whopper" in HANOI.
Might be better if you wrote, "a force to be reckoned with" Ho Ho and then along came the viet cong. All nations when motivated are a force to be reckoned with. Interestingly if one looks at saigon and hanoi now it makes you realise that america may have lost the war but they won the peace. Look at all the Macdonalds,KFC, banks and other American concerns in Vietnam and I would say the Americans won after all
Sadly a "forgotten war" These men were just as brave as in any war. Both my great grandfathers fought in WW1, grandma and grandpa said they were never the same. Left as boys, came home shattered men.
me too shattered
It may be forgotten in the US it certainly is not in thr UK and Europe and ANZUS.
@snakes3425 there is one near me a statue of a WW1 soldier
I'm english. this was the war of my great grandfathers. Of my family in that generation 7 members went out 3 came back whole, one crippled by gas. one who came back was the RSM of a cavalry regiment and was one of the last men to leave Galipoli, one who didn't come back was a regular and died at the Marne in 1914-one of the 'old contemptables'
This world is never fair
My father, Alfred Dixon, was in this war. He joined rather than be drafted. 36th Texas. He came from the backwoods and had never been exposed to common childhood diseases, so he contracted them all and almost died from the measles. So he spent much of his tour in the infirmary and was put on "light"duty such as baking bread and guarding prisoners. He did see some action in the last few weeks before the armistice, but he'd never say much about that. Everybody was offered an early discharge, but my father elected to stay on for another year with the occupation forces in the Rhineland. He liked the German people and came to speak it fairly well.
@Papillon Soo Soo My father was born in 1898. I was born in 1958. I am 64.
His a liar his father was not in World War 1, it ended 104 years ago! Why people lie I don't know my Great Great Grandfather fought in WWI, that's 4 generations ago, not 1 like his saying 👎🤣🇬🇧
So, that would make you about 100 years old.
I remember the Argonne, 1918 The sounds of that battle still haunt me to this day Machine gun fire from enemy lines The sickening sound of a bayonet tearing through human flesh The soldier next to me firing his sidearm in desperation All these sounds still echo in my mind, And as conducted by Death himself it all comes together as music A rhythm of death A symphony of war SABATON - The Lost Battalion (OFFICIAL LYRIC VIDEO ...

My great grandfather was one of the men in the lost battalion. Thank you for this.
"Far from their land, they made their stand, they stood strong and their legend still lives on!!!!!!"
1918 the great war rages on A battalion is lost in Argonne Under fire there's nothing they can do There's no way, they can get a message through Suffer heavy losses as the battle carries on Liberty division standing strong!
@Cody_D362 a band called sabaton. The song is called the lost battalion

There have been hundreds of war films made, and I’ve seen my share. This particular film stood out, and I was quite surprised by just how good it was. It’s one of the best films of this genre. Props to the director, set designer and actors ... they all did an incredible job. Thanks for uploading this and making it available.
"Nein, mein brot" carved a pit into my heart, and when he let him keep it I teared up. You almost never see things like kindness towards wounded soldiers (even if enemies) in movies any more; people are too concerned whether or not "the Germans get what they deserve".
If you and especially your wounded men were starving you would have taken his Brot.
Yup, us in the west have to demonise our enemy’s in order to feel like we have the moral high ground.
@Rowe Magnon I don't give a shit about what you think
@Storm Sumeet let’s see: WW1 Germany starts a war, gets ass kicked. WW2 Germany starts another war but also commits the worst atrocities known to man. Invents industrialised genocide then gets ass kicked. Yeah Germany was the bad guy in both wars
@Storm Sumeet lmao no.
Thomas O Cyr died in this battle, on Oct 7, 1918. He was my great great uncle. The Madawaska Legion Post in Madawaska , Maine is named after him.
@Adam Byrd thanks
Thank you so much for his service
@Doge Knight on Fanworks yep
@LORDCRIMSONFOX TWITCH hey wait you watched the Alastor show

There is literally no way possible to thank you for actually uploading the movie and not a virus link or a "click here to watch full" scam.
@Rob Zombie - Devil Man... Devil Man...! Devil Man... Burnin’ in my Head...Yeah..!! ✌🏼
You could send the guy some money but then we probably could not watch it so I guess your right after thinking about it
@perkyman sped up can be fixed if it’s exactly 2x the speed because you can half the viewing time and the voice usually goes back to normal
Yes I hate that crap to
What an honest guy!
Good film, I love it. My own ancestors fought in that war, in the Italian army, in trenches made of ice, up on the Alps against the Austro-Hungarians, we were on the side of France, Britain, the US, Canada, ANZAC, in that war. Seriously a lost generation, every country had such losses, for so little. At least in The Second World War you can rationalize it and say well it was against one of the most repulsive regimes (also us, in the beginning when we were under Mussolini, we were on the bad side) ever to appear on earth. True the Soviets weren't that much better, but the ideals of freedom over tyranny that the Allies had, sort of gives the war some meaning, also considering the atrocities the Japanese committed in China and the Pacific and the Germans in Eastern Europe. WWI on the other hand was a squabble between cousins, look at the monarchs, most were all grandchildren of Queen Victoria, sending their surplus population to die in horrific ways, while the high officers looked from a hill far away from danger with a cup of tea in their hands. Moving and removing arrows on a map, oh we lost this batallion, take it from the map, and put this other wooden piece. That wooden piece you just removed from the map were human lives, considered to be expendable, Generals playing Risk with real people. Bloody horrible.
Imperial guards and stormtroopers... Hmm I wonder where I've heard that from..
@GetAnUpgrade101 sorry, WW1 copied Skyrim
@Gourd WWI actually
@Gary Schultz what are you even talking about
WW2 copied Skyrim
VazzyCow 1:16:53 Worst Death In human history
Wow, how is it that I’ve never seen this movie. What a piece of work that General was, I understand the reasoning but to have them boys left out there by themselves should’ve been unacceptable. What courage and bravery shown by all involved, especially the pilot. I couldn’t imagine going thru something like that and then have to go back to a regular life. Anyways was just a few of my thoughts. Thank you to all the veterans that have kept and are keeping our country safe. Greatest country in the world
Fantastic film........I can't even begin to imagine how horrific that was for our soldiers who stood their ground and gave their very best!
Thank you for this movie. I'm a survivor of Vietnam, US Navy FMS Surgical Corpsman. I can't really tell you about war because it hurts too much. I can tell you that real heros don't play on American ball teams with thousands cheering. GOD BLESS the Veterans living and dead who serve to keep us free.
Thank you for your service & God bless you...
Not sure if they don't die to fill some guys pockets...
Also... check out stats of current military suicides per/mo. It's staggering and although I've contemplated...I don't want to be a stat.
”If I would stand at the gates of hell the day I die, even the devil would be speechless, for he would know I have already been through hell...” -Anonymous survivor of First World War
Great documentary! I had a great uncle who was with the 28th Division and was killed in Sept. 1918 in France by a German machine gunner. I also had a grandfather who served as a machine gunner in the 5th Division. God bless all our vets and all those families who lost members or who had wounded members.
11:47 I love how the inexperienced are laughing but the senior and experienced yell at them. Shows how serious the senior soldiers are about everything
Rick Schroder did an incredible job. I commend him for a job well done. My grandfather was with this unit and I give these men a salute that will never quit. The men who portrayed these other men did a superb job.
No he was not bro I have proof
The movie doesn't tell what happened to the Major later in his life. Major Whittlesey would survive the war and return to his civilian law practice, but he could never forget his ordeal or the men that he lost. He'd eventually take his own life as a result. I am filled to tears when I think about these men, all of them from every nation that fought during this war, because the world seems to have forgotten them. Sadly there are no more of them left for us to honor and thank for all that they had endured. May GOD bless those 'honored dead'.
My great grandad was a Major in the 89th 353rd. He was at Meuse-Argonne. He was also an attorney. I am thankful his life didn't go that route. Demons he had like the rest of them. Horrific detail in news clippings my family saved, books written with his battle experience, scrap books he made, the entire ordeal. He was 6'6", was a professional football player before joining the Army. I am certain he stuck out like a sore thumb in those trenches because that height then was like 7' now. He thankfully went home simply wounded. The scars left on his mind lasted a lifetime I am sure. Worst to happen to him was having to send his two sons to war 25 years later. One to Europe in a B17 as a navigator and the other to the Pacific as an officer on a destroyer. The both made it home. Thank you, Lord. God bless this courageous men.
The war to end all wars, followed by yet another - The greatest generation that we shall ever witness, George. I served in the British Airborne in the South Atlantic of 1982, tho' still find it hard to consider what my forebears went thru'; each man it is said, has their own 'war' to tell - tho' ironically, we never really speak of what we've experienced - an unwritten code of silence if you will....Rest now, brave warriors.
My grandfather participated in the Meuse-Argonne Offensive in 1918 as part of the US Army's 79th division (although he was not in the lost battalion). He spoke of those guys often, praising their toughness and courage. I wish he was still around so I could ask the questions I didnt know to ask when I was young.
Great film. I had only seen part of the middle of it when it came out. Great to see it all. Good historical detail, and the weapons and equipment were dead-on accurate. This really shows the nastiness and futility of war. WW1 is fading from most people's awareness. It deserves study because it had such a long lasting effect, in addition to setting the stage for WW2. I am a little surprised that only officers were awarded tge Medal. I am sure a number of the men deserved it as well. The private who got the DSC certainly deserved it. Glad to see this story told in detail and with respect.
The fate of the major after the war is a reminder of a later victim in another war. Audie Murphy, highly decorated WWII veteran and hero who became a prolific and credible movie actor of westerns after that war, had also suffered from serious mental issues. We now call it PTSD. His first wife couldn't take his behavior and was afraid for her safety. They split up after a year of marriage.
My grandfather was there, 14 to 18. He chatted with me, the same age as him in the trenches. Its almost 40 years now and I feel the numbness, hollow words that could not describe, but were all we had available. Thank you.
To think how these men fought in their time is truly inspiring and insane. War tactics have came a long way since the first war. Where and how will we fight in the next 100 years is anyone's guess. Hopefully mankind will finally learn from the past.
Having grown up seeing 'Ricky" Schroder on TV everywhere back then, I must say his performance in The Lost Battalion was terrific. He was able to bring the realism of that Battle to life along with the cast. This movie is very well done.
I must say the comments on here are quite disturbing , people arguing over how many battle deaths eagle who contributed more to winning the war. And the fact that American contributions were very small compared to the other allies. Many people seem to forget that Though the United States did not enter until April 19 17 there were 35,000 Americans who serve in the Canadian expeditionary forces and many lay their lives down for what they believed in there’s a monument at Arlington national cemetery paid for by the Canadian government to commend these men. So no the United States did not technically Enter until that time but there were Americans in the war As early as 1915. Not to mention many who fought for France as well. And seeing as not a single person on here can know what it was like to fight in that war myself included it’s ridiculous to argue over what country gave more. I think of more people remember the fact that a single life lost in anymore in a matter what country they’re from they deserve to be respected and rememberd . That is just my opinion as unbiased as I can say it.
"This is a French chauchau!" "Chuat!" "It's a piece of garbage don't worry about!" BEST FUCKING SCENE! 10:21-11:31
it wasn't that bad, the Americans re chambered it to shoot their ammo. it shot the French stuff well. check out forgotten weapons on you tube.
Sums up the gun perfectly
+SuperGomez59 Yeah A Captain recalled If The BAR Was Here Ages Ago We Could Have Save Lots Of man
+Two Mouse That gun was a piece of garbage, it was known to easily jam because the magazine was open and mud and dirt easily got in it.
Thank for allowing us to learn of this story, I was clueless and saddened to hear of Charles Whittelesey untimely passing. He would be a great asset in the world today 🙏🙏
I'm moved by the gallantry of the officers & men of the lost battalion at the close of the First World War .Above & beyond the call of duty . They fought so that we may be free . A really high price indeed . May God love & protect them all . Amen
i've already watched it for so many times, but still every time i watch it, it is still amazing, a great story with great and valiant soldiers. very inspiring, that if any person will watch this movie, the spirit of patriotism will really ignite,.
These where real officers who really knew their job and cared for their soldiers. My SALUTE to these brave men during WW1.
Great movie. First saw it in history class back in 8th grade. That was probably the best school day i ever had. I cant believe that carrier pigeon was wounded and still delivered its message. Definately deserved a monument.
This is such a good movie those men have more bravery than I could ever know we must never forget RIP thank you for everything you guys sacrificed
The production values in the film are exceptional. This is one of the best war films ever made.
One of the most underrated war movies out there. The only other mention of The Lost Battalion I've seen recently was the Sabaton song of the same name.
Great soldiers, these " doughboys " - the term GI was coined until WWII. A tribute to my grandmother's and great uncles' generation . Thank you all for your kindness, hard work & discipline. Thanks for sharing the video.
The first WWI movie I've seen, and I wasn't disappointed in the least bit. This movie captures the true American grit and pride we once had as a nation. Five stars
@Tuten Vanman this comment aged like milk, considering Russia invaded Ukraine
All Quiet On The Western Front is another excellent WW1 movie, from the German perspective
Who is the medical doc we're is your laders who's birthday is November 1o and D,C the 11 thanks trench feet
@Frank D97E Only in ww2
@Justjake53 Welsh I don't hate Americans far from it . I hate the EU and would have closer ties with your country. As for my remarks ...come on be honest you were late entering both. Yet you make enough films about it. You were our allies as were the Russians and the EU hate all of us because we show them up for what they really are cowards.
Thank you to all these grave men. A great movie to show the generations now and coming up, What we fought for and won. Hopefully they will get it through their heads once and for all, but I doubt it. God bless you all that have served. Great upload, cheers!
Hello, melliemoo. How are you doing today?
This is such an underrated film.
Much better than saving private Ryan
Yeah no shut with bf1 everyone has automatics and it sucks when that happens cause only German stormtroopers had mo18’s
except if your a sabaton fan
I came here from one of sabaton songs
@mountainguyed67 yeah I'm aware of that.
An excellent movie that does the actions of these men justice, credit to the cast and crew, an outstanding movie that should be part of the curriculum of seniors at high school.
Far from their land, as they made their stand A disregarded demand It’s surrender or die, and the stakes are high They live or they die, there’s no time for good bye Weapon in hand, as they made their stand Still disregarding demand They would never comply they would rather die Broke through the blockade they were finally saved
American soldiers are taught to never surrender so long as there is means to make a defense. When it comes to an enemy like the one in Iraq or Afghanistan that would torture and kill you regardless we would never surrender.
Noch Ein Bier
"I want to know if its stupidity or inspired bravery that motivates these Americans." Both. The stupidity is from the General staff. The inspired bravery from the junior officers and men.
WWI-Young lions led by old donkeys
My great uncle, Otto Schultz, who took the place of a deserter was wounded and ultimately died in this battle and is buried in France.
@Marki Faux I'm educated about war iv seen it first hand I'm Iraq and Afghanistan. What makes you the expert
@Marki Faux fuck you asshole you dont have the balls to answer the call and put your life of the line for something greater than yourself. You are a coward
EyesSetOnTheHorizon what the fuck does that gotta do with anything?
Marki Faux i love how you call people uneducated but don’t point out how
@Marki Faux shut up you pansy.
god bless these men on both sides and men on both sides who fought all throughout the war
*FAR FROM THEIR LAND AS THEY MADE THEIR STAND THEY STOOD STRONG AND THE LEGEND STILL LIVES ON*
I actually have my grandmother's uncle's uniform the cover , too with all the patches and chevron's , pants and the leg wraps , he was killed during this battle , I never knew the whole story until recently. After being kia in this battle his belongings was sent back to NYC where myself and my entire family is from , I have been contemplating donating the uniform to a museum in NYC it is in absolutely perfect condition and has such an amazing history I feel others should be able to see it and appreciate it. Plus it will be better taken care of and preserved. I would only ask that if ever it had to be packed away or sold or whatever that I would have the first chance to obtain it.
New York Gangsters...Love it I knew the story of the "lost battalion" but never knew about this movie until recently, what a really good war film. probably one of the best I've seen. you don't need CGI or crazy special effects when the (true) story is MORE than compelling God bless these brave men and their gallant major, these boys from the Liberty Division, 77th ID, 308th Battalion, and especially Major Whittlesey...it is a tragedy what happened to him after the war
I enjoyed this movie.. be it American or any other nationality, bravery and honor will always be respected
@Clinton Miller the Imperial German government in WW1 tried to avoid a world war from happening however sadly they still got sucked up into it and lost and then took the blame for EVERYTHING that happened in WW1. The Germans didn’t start WW1 and that has been proven.
@B&O5300 nah us americans at bellu wood
talking about suicide action....all those destroyed bodies...shooting/bombing own men...
Shut up Carlos.
@Clinton Miller That's a stupid way of thinking
I love how the pep talk is basically: "There ain't shit you can do about all the explosives they're gonna be lobbing at you, so just worry about your rifle and fix your fuckin' bayonet."
My grand father was a soldier of WW1.1914-18. Was Awarded 3 Georgian crosses . Survived German gas attack . During Russian civil war didn't take any side due his poor health. Died in WW2 eccidently step on mine.. 1943.He was 63 years old..
Hello, Nikolai. How are you doing today?
My great-grandfather's brother was in the 5th Marines at Belleau Wood. He was killed attempting to silence a machine-gun possibly when the marines were attempting to take Hill 142. He was 17-19. I outlived him only by a few years so far. Pvt. Albert Edward Jones. 47th Company, 3rd Division, 5th Marines. Accompanied by Pvt. William J. Kehoe.
10:20 my favorite scene “This is a French Sho-Sho.” “Chauchat.” “It’s a piece of garbage don’t worry about it.”
Fun fact during the Battle of Belleau Wood, the Marines described the French Chauchat saying “Chauchat? More like “So Shit””.
The funny this is its not garbage troops used them wrong it was ment as a 3 round burst wespon not full auto but the bullets were exposed so it did get muddy and possibly jam. if I remember correctly
Gun jesus approved
@Amadeus2248 Maybe in ww1 but in ww2 the french army was trash. Not the resistance or the air force because they actually scared the Germans unlike the army.
@MrChelsea34 Except for the famas. Famas good
My great uncle served in the 308th from May 1918 to Dec. 1919, when he suffered a crippling leg injury from shrapnel. I didn't fully appreciate this 90 minute movie until I read the Wikipedia outline of the service of the 308th in 1918 & 1919. YouTube hosts many videos about what was one of our world's earliest industrialized wars introducing mass slaughter and killing machines. He never talked about it. The world was traumatized by what it had produced and participated in. Survivors returned home crippled, maimed, poisoned, and deformed from gases. And mud - hundreds of miles of knee deep mud. And the smell of death. He returned decades later - after WWII - and all he'd talk about was the resilience of the people who were rebuilding and planning for their future, and their children's futures. May God preserve and protect us.
My great granddad fought in one of the last cavalry charges in ww1, I am lucky because I remember him before he died. but I always remember his voice when he told me about when he had to charge towards the Germans, he said he was so terrified when he and his friends were charging that all he could do was scream in fear. He ended up getting blown off his horse and he had a shrapnel wound at the side of his head, I always remember seeing the scar. A brave and kind man and I will never ever be as worthy compared to the men who fought in that war.
@Patriotic Socialism panzers. What ball's.
@ANNO DOMINI The Australian Light Horse charged at Beersheba in the middle east. It was the last successfully cavalry charge.
Can you say what unit he was in and do you know anything about which battle it was?
During both wars, cavalry regiments were waiting for the bulge call,for the great charge!!!! Put sadly the only bulge call was for dinner,to eat thier own horses because they ran out of rations.
That’s funny considering that their were no actual cavalry charges during ww1, their were cavalry units on standby, but no charges.
My Grandpa Henry Riemann fought in the Argonne forest and received some sort of medal. He did make it through the war and lived until 1956. He was of German Heritage. This was a fine film. I want to say Thanks to all the brave men & women who served in the arm forces. Thank You.
...my prayers are with you...all military serving and veterans now and in the past... God bless and keep you...
The bravery of these men should never be forgotten. When in battle one does not think of the greater good only survival. I think this adaptation done that aspect Justice
my 8th grade teacher showed us this video, im glad I had him as a history teacher. He didnt skip the small things like the bird Cher Ami saving troop lives.
He and his men had to be some of the bravest men on the planet, in any century. This was also a great movie.
Love this movie. I have the DVD, but am "watching" it (which means I have it on in the background for noise) while I'm in my office working. Brings a nice perspective to the divorce and custody cases I'm working on....... Thanks for posting.
My Grandfather, Eldridge Pietschman, was a Marine and one of the message "runners" at Verdun. He described to my Father how a bridge was being crossed, and was not blown up until it was completely covered with men crossing it. After the explosion, the river literally ran red with blood. And he was personally wounded, a victim of gas. The soldiers in the bridge, Allied or Axis? I don't know, as my father is gone, so that fact is lost to time. And considering the memory of the carnage? Well, you know, after a hundred years, it really doesn't matter, does it? But we really never learn this lesson. Until it is too late. Always. Always!
@Michel Fradin Thanks!
@William Pietschman : There is a department at the US Pentagon which is in charge of the file of each US soldier who took part in all overseas combats. With his name, date and place of birth they should be able to tell you more than I do. Sorry not to be of better help. Good luck to you. And thank you to your grand dad to have fought in this terrible war.
@Michel Fradin All og these things get lost in time. There is a diary. I recall it has these places, and that he either trai ed a Quantico (sp?) Virginia, and/or was also sent there after being gassed. There were also addresses of people whom he corresponded wth whilst he was in hospital. As far as Verdun, I know he was there, perhaps he transited through there in 1917. I dont know exactly where he fought, or specifically where he was wounded. How to get records does anybody know?
@William Pietschman : May be he confused ? The siege of Verdun started at end of Feb.1916 and lasted till second half of December 1916. It was exclusively a German/French battle, the Germans being commanded by the Kronprinz and the French by four star General Petain ( later Field Marshall ). None British troop toke part ( they were more up north in Flanders ) and less still US troops which had not yet disembarked in France. The only explanation is that he joined the French Foreign Legion.
@Michel Fradin his diary says he was in Verdun. And a place called Muessse. (Sp?)
The best movie I've ever watched .... God bless those solders.
I truly understand how you feel Selena. My Uncle Nick (whom I was named after), was an Infantry Sergeant as was I, but he was killed in the opening days of the Battle of the Bulge. He was assigned to Patton and Armored Infantry for the 3rd Army Corps in the 2nd Armor Devision. I still don't understand how the Infantry is supposed to protect Tanks! He was killed in Germany and is buried in Holland. He and my father were in it together and saw each other's just days before D-Day in England. My dad was with the 440th Combat Engineers, but luckily made it home alive. I tried picking his brain about the war especially since I was a Combat wounded Airborne Infantry with the 1st Air Cavalry Division in Vietnam during 1968/1969 wounded in action the third and final time on Jan 28th 1969. I was born six years after my Uncle Nick died and wish so hard to have at least met him and let him know there was another Infantry Sergeant that was honored in his name. But I sure wish I'd have met him! I was awarded his burial flag as it was passed down through the family. I also have my fathers too.
Thank you all for your service...God bless...
Recommend if you appreciate the warriors plight, want to learn about it, or just learn more about history. Excellent movie by any standard.
absolutely LOVE this movie. favorite part is 10:21-11:31 in the whole movie!
Watched this in my military history class back in high school. I think 57:13 is one of the best scenes in this movie.
My great-grandad was in this battalion. Wish he were still alive so I could ask him questions about it.
Yeah sure he was,
My hairdresser neighboor's grandma was in this bataillon. A great pink haired woman with a prostetic arm !
I was soldier I graduated from WP and been in all 3 wars in the middle east, I have my cheer of how bad is the war. Edwin Ret L. CONOREL
Y’all don’t feel some type of way that they baited y’all grandparents
I think it is an injustice that only the officers were awarded the Medal of Honor.
@Got Anon Not anymore with the modern NCO Corps.
The rather “unjust” reward by rank continues to this day.
@Got Anon sure officers keep order.They don't make great soldiers and they don't make great fighters tho and if he had shit soldiers they wouldve ran anyways him leading or not. US militsry doctrine even a private is trained to run a squad.
Funny because without these officers the enlisted would have broken and ran......
Military politics are worse than civilians when it comes to awards
100 years ago the guns fell silent. 100 years ago my great grandfather realized that he would be able to go home. 🇺🇸🇮🇹
@Jaequan Smith Im Puerto Rican but my great grandfather was Italian hence the Hispanic surname.
SALUTE TO YOUR BRAVE HEROIC GRANDFATHER, AMAZING MAN. GOD BLESS HIM AND YOUR FAMILY FOREVER
What do you Want? Insanity, tears, gore, explosive action, dedication, duty to the cause and upstanding bravery. You'll get it all and all credits to the Directors and Actors who brought this amazing film to the screen. Always remember those men who have been portrayed and Never Ever Forget!
My first rifle( 8th birthday) was a British Enfield .303. Cost $10 at Texas Foley's and 1000 rounds was $30. My oldest brother, now 86, gave that present.
i have the same rifle. found it sticking out of a dumpster 30 yrs ago.
That part at 1:10:06 gets me every time. "Nein..nein..My food!" Poor kid. Probably hadnt eaten for weeks and was holding onto it for literal dear life. Must've been so frightened and hungry....and died alone
"You hear that, we're having fun"! Great movie, I saw in A&E about 18 years ago (and the military banter is on point).
Ive watch this ten years ago, maybe two or three times on DVD and now again on you tube. Salute to you guys. You deserve your medals
As we approach the 100 year anniversary of World War I, I realize that many of us have forgotten this war and the fact that it nearly wiped out an entire generation in Europe. These men faced slaughter of epic proportions. God bless the men on both sides and the hardships they endured. Let us never forget the horrors of his war and the use of chemical weapons.
Read this book: War and the Breed, by David Starr Jordan. Watch this lecture: World at War, by Ralph Raico (3 hours)
Yes, the horrific Mustard gas attacks
We the US didn't suffer as many casualties as the others did but we still lost a good portion of guys due to at times obsolete tactics but we did press on

Australia had the highest casualty rate per population in 1st WW. In every town in the country there is a monument to the "Diggers" who gave their life in that war.
This is one movie i totally enjoyed watching much more realistic than some war movies i watched there was so much history in the trenches than what is being told more archeology has been done learning about the lives of soldiers and finding so many finds with personal items with there names and initials and even inside the bunkers there was items of there lives and names carved in the walls as what was bad was the gasses and bad weather of trench foot and how painful it would had been to get your feet wet in the bad conditions pure hell at times when the whistle blew the trenches emptied only the soldiers who were at one time in there lines would there bodies littering the ground in the somme pure suicide to run forward at there enemies be shot and killed or wounded
23:00 the actor playing the German general played a similar role at the end of the HBO Series Band of Brothers and gave his troops an inspirational speech
This is one of the best movies I have ever seen my grandfather fought in world war I said it was horrible
I can only imagine what was going through the mind of the Artillery major when he found out he had been bombing his own men...
I think he was thinking " friendly fire will not be tolerated"
He said I fucked up,you trusted me ,lol
I think I would have told them where they started at was between them and the enemy. Start back there and work “out” this time, instead of coming toward the Americans.
There never is enough discussion/action on the mental health side of being a soldier. A normal personal is turned into a very willing killer to just survive the war. Those who survive have massive scars on their very being. One particular family member discussed being in the middle of a battle where you are desperately seeking cover. All through the battle you stepping on parts of what used to be a person including someone's brains. As he sees a memory it shakes him. Nobody is the same after service in combat. Soldiers don't set policy. If you hate or love a policy that is 100% cool. Please don't take out your feelings on the soldiers that are stuck with the policy. John 3:16-18 16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. 17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. 18 “He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
God Bless the men and women who took part Any part of in this Great War Rip for the Many Many who died Fighting bravely 😔💪👌👍💝
This is the second time I watched this remarkable film. Just as powerful and moving as it was the first time I seen it.
i saw this in history class loved it ever since.
How long did you sign up for?
Robert Lombardo Same thing here
Paulsilas Mills I saw this for the first time in high school history class too!
I watched it for the first time on AMC also. I think they had a couple historians speaking about the film after the commercial breaks. This incident haunted Whittlesey (losing so many men and being dubbed a hero) that he took his own life in 1921. He was also received the Medal Of Honor along with 2nd in command George McMurtry.
I saw this with my mother on AMC in 2001. I was 11. It wounded my soul, and darkened my heart. I never understood war in such a way before. Something to consider, the Normandy Landing in Saving Private Ryan, I saw shortly after...and I almost got sick, and ran from the room. It used to be that ABC ran the film every Jun 6th...that was when I ran from form the room. This film, haunts me...and I watch it like a masochist. I refuse to allow history to fade away.
"SUFFERED HEAVY LOSSES AS THE BATTLE CARRIED ON! FAR FROM THEIR LAND AS THEY MADE THEIR STAND, THEY STOOD STRONG AND THE LEGEND STLL LIVES ON!"
What a powerful movie this was. It is just a testament to all our men and women who great show courage in the face of adversary no matter what their jobs in the military might be. They did it in the best of their ability and showed the world the American fighting spirit
Its unfortunate that Whittlesy committed suicide. I would've loved to hear an interview with him. Probably wouldn't of done one but you never know.
Undoubtedly the best WWI film ever made.
In November 1921, Whittlesey acted as a pallbearer at the burial of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery, along with fellow Medal of Honor recipients Samuel Woodfill and Alvin York. A few days later he booked passage from New York to Havana aboard the SS Toloa, a United Fruit Company ship. On November 26, 1921, the first night out of New York, he dined with the captain and left the smoking room at 11:15 p.m. stating he was retiring for the evening, and it was noted by the captain that he was in good spirits. Whittlesey was never seen again. He was reported missing at 8:00 a.m. the following morning. He is presumed to have committed suicide by jumping overboard, although no one reported seeing him jump and Whittlesey's body was never recovered. Before leaving New York, he prepared a will leaving his property to his mother. He also left a series of letters in his cabin addressed to relatives and friends. The letters were addressed to his parents, his brothers Elisha and Melzar, his uncle Granville Whittlesey, and to his friends George McMurtry, J. Bayard Pruyn, Robert Forsyth Little and Herman Livingston, Jr. Also in his cabin was found a note to the captain of the Toloa leaving instructions for the disposition of the baggage left in his stateroom. He left the famous German letter asking for surrender to McMurtry.
A deep appreciation to those that that fought in this terrible war …
Incredible acts of valor, thank you for posting it!
I have never seen this nor have I heard of this! What a marvelous story. RIP men. You certainly deserve it as you have been through hell. It is incredible what they did. What a feat of incredible bravery and American stubborness. If this generation had to fight like that, most wouldn't make it through the second day of basic without calling their mommies. What a nation my generation helped raise. My apologies.
A big salute to all the hero's.
Such an epic story. I really wish someone would make a new movie about the Lost Battalion today, with a big budget and A-list actors.
I salute all the men of the Lost Battalion! It is because of them and men like them I am able to enjoy peace, security, and freedom today!
Ricky Schroder was brilliant in this, im glad he was getting these type of roles.
This is one of my favorite war movies of all time.
@Alphonso you spend your freetime insulting other people’s tastes?
thank you for saving us you are a great soldiers thx to you all we are save from the German army behalf of the American army I'll salute you all with glory many man lost their lives on this war thank you all and all that has fallen in this war they are the true heroes of this war.
Seriously hand to hand. Out numbered out gunned hungry thirsty and so many other obstacles yet still fought . These men made all the difference about winning against all odds. They didn't have to wait to be fired upon first .I could go on.
"Weapon in hand as they made their stand. Still disregarding demand. They would never comply, They would rather die. Broke though the blockade they were finally saved!"
Ah a good sabaton reference. Thank you sir for making my morning reading this.
