An incredible piece of historical drama.
13 August 2000 | by (Celina, Ohio) – See all my reviews

This video version of the episodes "The Somme-September 1916" and "Germany-September 1916" from the series THE YOUNG INDIANA JONES CHRONICLES was long overdue for release. Having found myself lucky to have copies of the originals on video and being a student of World War One warfare and tactics, I found this story to be first-rate in showing the true feeling and horrors of fighting in the trenches during the Great War. Having Indiana Jones in the episodes is only a sub-plot - the true story showing exactly what happened in the trenches to great and horrific detail. Three particular points - a man chokes to death during a gas attack, the jumping "charging" of the trenches as they lose and gain ground, and the Germans advancing through the gas with flamethrowers - parallels scenes from such great World War One films as THE BLUE MAX or ALL QUIET ON THE WESTERN FRONT for realism.

I recommend this video to everyone who I know is studying World War One history, be it as a passing hobby, reenacting, or on the college level. It deserves to be in your library.
