“Journey’s End” opened  yesterday at the Landmark Theater on 57th 
street. It is an antiwar film based on events that took place just about 
a century ago. A British company is in the trenches at Amiens, France in 
mid-March preparing for Operation Michael, a planned, massive German 
assault gathering material just across a “no-man’s land” that was about 
the length of a football field. Most of the action takes place over a 3 
day period from March 19 to March 21, when the Germans overran the 
British. In three months at Amiens, 750,000 men would die while another 
1 million would die before the war ended. Unlike all the patriotic gore 
surrounding “Dunkirk” and “Darkest Hour”, this is a portrait of war that 
is a close relative of “All Quiet on the Western Front” and “Paths of 
Glory”.
