Old Indiana Jones lectures a so-called 'Pirate of Wallstreet' sitting next to him on a plane about the horrors of the first world war. The man reminds old Indy of the generals who casually send hundreds of young men off to slaughter in the trenches with each battle. Indy himself had managed to get a position as a courier, while his friend Remy had ended up in hospital, only to be ordered back to the front as soon as his wounds have healed. On a reconnaissance mission, Indy learned the Germans were bringing in two Big Bertha's, enormous howitzers to be used at Verdun. Written by

When we see the letter Indy is writing to T.E. Lawrence it reads 'I'm at a place called Verdun'. However, his narration says 'I'm in a place called Verdun'. See more

You remind me of someone I met in the first world war. I enlisted in the Belgian army under an alias. They made me a courier and before I knew it, I was with the high command of the French second army. At Verdun, one of the worst battles of the war.
