Uomini contro (internationally released as Many Wars Ago) is a 1970 Italo-Yugoslav anti war drama film directed by Francesco Rosi. It is based on the memoir by Emilio Lussu "Un anno sull'altopiano" The Italian title is (most likely) ambiguous and difficult to translate ("Men against" is a word by word translation). However "Un anno sull'altopiano" means "A year on the plateau". The film was screened at the 65th Berlin International Film Festival in honor of Francesco Rosi, deceased a few weeks before.

Many Wars Ago movie scenes

On the Trentino Front during World War I around 1916–17, Italian army officers demand far too much of their men.

Many Wars Ago movie scenes

Time after time the soldiers are forced to leave their trenches in attempts to storm the enemy positions, always with the same horrific result. The Austro-Hungarian machine guns inevitably mow them down. In one attack a major is killed during a mutiny, and subsequently every tenth man of his battallion is chosen to be executed by a firing squad of his comrades, in some bizarre kind of compensation for the killed officer. And it gets only worse...
