Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

A 1915 silent film about the Siege of Hova Georgievsk 10-20 Aug 1915. The Germans fighting the Russians in Poland. This is early WW I film. Durbordough was in Europe to shoot film in April -Aug 1915. This was first shown in Milwaukee since there were so many Germans settled in WI. Take a close look at the rifles , they are not Gew 98s. They look like 1871/84 Mausers and some Gew 88s.

It has been shown only 5 times in 1917 so maybe it will be repeated so a copy can be obtained on a VCR.

This is a very cool movie. I've been watching the straight silent version without commentary. Double check me, but at around minute 40 or 41, I think I see come captured M91 Mosins being carried. When the Germans are demonstrating advancing under line of fire cover, there is a German soldier in the foreground with what looks like a M91. He's working the bolt but doesn't appear to actually be firing any rounds. Maybe the others have blank 8mm for the demonstration and he doesn't have blanks for the Mosin? Just a thought, but I found it interesting to see the M91's mixed in. Thanks for sharing the links.

I finally got a non blue ray version from Canada of APOCALYPSE World War I a 5 episode series normal DVD , very well done by Isabelle Clarke and Daniel Costello. There is some really nice footage here. The Blue Ray version is easy to get.
Here is a short review.

Both of these films/documentaries are a must to watch if you are into WW I history.

I wish I could find the Keystone Stenographic Library of 6 volumes, 300 steroview cards from WW I intact for $100 :drool: :snooty: :shifty: :shifty: But they go about $500. Some of the better views sell $10 -20 per card :violin: I never found this set of photos reproduced in a book. The Holy Grail of WW I goodies other than a complete intact WW I USMC uniform.

Here is a link to LLC views of all the 300 stereographic cards in the Keystone WW I set they can be enlarged. About 30 are keepers, the rest so- so.

Hopefully folks are also watching The Great War channel on Youtube. They do plan to release it on DVD when finished. Covers WW1 week by week from start to finish plus lots of extras:
