This film is the direct answer to Britain's 1916 war documentary film "The Battle of the Somme" and features footage taken in the time of June to November 1916. This was the first film made under the BuFA (Bild- und Filmamt - Picture and Film Agency - precursor to the UFA) regime was a direct response to the British model. It was called "Bei unseren Helden an der Somme" and was first shown publicly in Berlin on 19 January 1917. For the first time a film was released bearing the explicit characterisation "amtlich-militärisch" - or "official military business". Never before had a film presenting pictures of actual battle been shown in Germany - this film was advertised of doing so. And never before had a propaganda film been given a festival premiere.

"It is simply a fortunate coincidence that this film survived years of censorship during the Soviet ‘60s and was finally released at the end of the ‘80s. The director made it together with his students, and this “cover” of being a film school project made the entire production possible. The film presents the horror of war as an existential drama, which radically differs from the traditional Soviet approach, in which war is presented almost exclusively through the prism of patriotic pathos." -Sergei Loznitsa
