Uomini contro / Many Wars Ago / Men Against... / Just Another War / Men Opposed (1970) DVD9
The action takes place during the First World War on the Assagio, where Italian troops are fighting the Austrians for possession of Northern Italy. War has turned into a bloody stalemate. The ‘troops’ comprise of farmers and labourers who have little experience of war and are fatigued and homesick. Bogged down in their trenches on a barren highland, the men of an Italian infantry division have been given one objective: retake a commanding height from the enemy. Unfortunately, the tactical ingenuity of General Leone, the unpopular division commander, consists of supplementing frontal attacks against machine-guns with medieval fighting schemes. His dispirited troops must be prodded with ever harsher measures into storming the Austrian positions. Indignation spreads amongst the rank and file...

Although it covers some of the same thematic ground as Stanley Kubrick's Paths of Glory — the absurdities of a war run by the upper-crust but fought by the lower class — Francesco Rosi's Many Wars Ago fights the anti-war fight in its own way, highlighting the tedium and terror of The Great War's trenches. Rosi's approach to the combat is dirty and naturalistic, with carefully chosen moments of gore used to underscore the consequences of bad strategies.
