A short while ago I saw the German picture "Sarajevo" that gives an interesting take on events, according to which the Germans and Austrians were the masterminds behind the assassination of Franz Ferdinand. Their motive was to get Serbia out of the way of their grand designs for the Berlin Baghdad railway.

new on youtube the original 1919 silent movie The Lost Battalion. The 2001 one is also on youtube There is a rather good presentation in the National WW I Museum and Memorial "hell's Half Acre The True story of the Lost Battalion"

I also found on youtube a newly posted video that is one of the funniest I have ever watched "The Russian 2nd pacific Squadron- Voyage of the Damned"

new on YouTube the original 1919 silent movie The Lost Battalion.

And this movie is now 100 years old.   Safe to assume that the cast are all dead.

Some of the men you see in the 1919 movie the Lost battalion were actual members of this unit. Some of the film clips are of their unit the 77th Infantry Division.


also on youtube I found
"Official Entrances of Nicholas II and Family"

Makes sense.  Those men would have been still alive then.

on youtube drachinifel had the the Russian 2nd pacific Squadron Voyage of the Damned a somewhat comical look at the Russian baltic fleets around the world voyage during the Russo-Japanese war. It has just come out with the squel: Battle of Tsushima When the 2nd pacific squadron thought it couldn't get any worse". Where the Russian Baltic fleet gets destroyed at the battle of Tsushima. Note the color film clips are CG made for a Japanese mini series. See battle of Tsushima on youtube for more of them. Also the paintings look like the work of Russian martime artist Vladimir Emyshev see allworldwars.com for more of his works.

drachinifel also has:
Baltic naval war 1919-fire and ice (but mostly lots of ice) which is fairly good but a Sopwith Camel was not shot down by a red balloon observer with a pistol.

newsreel on youtube: AEG Bombers german Air Base in Dobrudja 1916. The aircraft are AEG G-III bombers of Kaghol 1 or KG 1 for short. Se the book AEG airaft of WW I by jack herris for color profiles. Note KG 1 is the unit mentioned in Queen Marie of Rumania's memoirs that bombed Burkarest badly on 25 Sep 1916.

europeanfilmgateway.eu.de has a longer clip containing this segment "El Avance victorio de Makensen for la Dobruja. In it there is a clip of smoke from Russiaan warships off Constanta rumania. the Russian navy shelled the city after the Germans captured it on the following date:
1 nov 16 cruiser Pamjat Merkurija broke off do to false submarine alarm
2 Nov 16 destroyers Bystry and Pospesnyj no notable damage
4 nov 16 Pamjat Merkurija where 15 out of 37 fuel tanks destroyed.
