IN some ways the present war is be­ing more im­per­fectly recorded than were the wars of the past, in other ways bet­ter… The film pic­tures tell their own tale. They have been taken on a very large scale dur­ing this war, and to fu­ture his­to­ri­ans they will be of more value than they are to us, be­cause on many a dis­puted point their ev­i­dence will be unim­peach­able. Never in his­tory has a war been so recorded… In some far dis­tant age, when in­ven­tion has been car­ried be­yond any point imag­in­able by us to­day, per­haps writ­ers will look back and talk in the same terms of the fight­ing of the twen­ti­eth cen­tury.
