“Lacking any gestures toward patriotism or glory, any exploitation of spectacle, Milestone's film remains one of the boldest statements ever made against the cruelty and futility of war. In Germany, 1917, seven enthusiastic schoolboys leave their village to enlist in the army. Brutalized and disillusioned in training, they are posted to the French front, where further horrors await them. Then, further disillusionments: the soldier home on leave is now a stranger.

Begun as a silent, the film contains extraordinary tracking shots that have often been taken for ‘actuality’ footage; some overtly pacifist material was cut soon after release. This restoration brings this important film back to audiences in a version closer to the original than at any time since 1931. — Judy Bloch, Pacific Film Archive
