The Battle of the Somme (1916)

“The Battle of the Somme is a 1916 British documentary and propaganda film. Shot by two official cinematographers, Geoffrey Malins and John McDowell”
The main point of this film was to raise morale at which it was very successful. The film shows scenes of violence and the true character of war. It finally show the home front what the troops have to deal with and go through. This shock value causes great uproar and concern for the fight.
