The marching sound is a bit annoying. Other than that it's a brilliant representation of WW1.

Well this was a truly emotional experience.....
Oh the countless lives lost just to run the war for another day....
Good work my friend, good work.

this is not only worth 5 stars, but 10! it's emotionally very gripping, the gloomy ambiance is a success, well helped by the sound. and the art... the ART! excellent animation, i love this special style, the coloring too. this anim really makes the thought of WWI seep into your brain... and even it's usually not the kind of event i like to dwell much upon and watch a lot, this is so going into my faves.

For someone who comes from both German and French ancestry, this really hits the spot, loved how the gears came to a halt during the Winter Scene, them wearing gas masks as protection from gas attacks, and the blown out bridge as some one had stated before, throwing people into the grinder.

Didn't enjoy, and it didn't do the conflict justice. The voice actor need more bass in his voice, sounded nasally, and whiny. All in all a fine point in click flash animation.
