Dieser Film will das Fronterlebnis der Soldaten vermitteln. Erlebnisse eines Stoßtrupps zeigen, was Millionen Soldaten im ersten Weltkrieg an Entbehrungen litten, welche Wunder an Heldenmut und Opfersinn jeder einzelne vollbrachte. Nichts am Kriege soll beschönigt werden. Anschaulich wie noch nie im Bild, sieht man die modernen Kriegsmittel. Das Sperr- und Trommelfeuer begleitet den Film von der ersten bis zur letzten Szene. Und diesem zermürbenden Feuer hielten die Frontsoldaten vier Jahre lang stand.

This film is intended to convey the experiences of frontline soldiers. The events experienced by the assault troops in this film show what millions of soldiers in the First World War went through, from the privations to the miracles carried out by heroic courage and the sense of sacrifices made to accomplish their tasks. Northing in war is glossed over in this film. The film clearly shows how modern warfare in the early 20th Century took place. Artillery barrage and trench warfare accompany the film from the first to the last scene. And it was the frontline soldier who had to deal with this for four long years.
