Attack of the Dead Men

James Brown travels back in time to take part in what would be remembered as the “attack of the dead men,” the bloody conclusion of the battle of Osowiec in World War I. For nearly a year the fortress on the Russian border with Prussia was besieged by the German army. Russia’s soldiers displayed extraordinary courage and resilience, holding their ground even being fatally poisoned by gas. To commemorate the centenary of the start of World War I and to honor the soldiers who fell, hundreds of experts and re-enactors from all over Europe joined forces to recreate that memorable battle.
