A movie about the First World War based on a stage musical of the same name, portraying the "Game of War" and focusing mainly on the members of the Smith family who go off to war. Much of the action in the movie revolves around the words of the marching songs of the soldiers, and many scenes portray some of the more famous (and infamous) incidents of the war, including the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand, the Christmas meeting between British and German soldiers in no-man's-land, and the wiping out by their own side of a force of Irish soldiers newly arrived at the front, after successfully capturing a ridge that had been contested for some time.

I saw this movie once, thirty years ago, and it still has the power to choke me inside.
This is the first film I look for on any movie site I go to. Every other movie I just browse for.
Along with the original "All Quiet on the Western Front", I find it one of the most powerful war movies ever. All the other movies have actors that you know didn't die - no matter how realistic the scenes.
This movie truly affected me at the time.
I would drive a long way to purchase, or see this movie. Why has this movie never been released when so many worse have been? Other movies might be considered entertainment, but not this one.
