German WWI veteran describes killing a French soldier in a bayonet charge

Originally filmed and released by BBC in the 1960’s.

Stefan Westmann, a Corporal with the German 29th Infantry Division, recollects the moment he killed a French Corporal during hand-to-hand combat during World War I.

This video reflects the after-effects of war. It was originally called “shell shock”, then later termed “Post Traumatic Stress Disorder” or “Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome”. PTSD affects many people, but not all, that experience an individual or recurring violent, traumatic, stressful event.

Most people that suffer PTSD have experienced real world life-and-death
such as soldiers, police officers, fire-rescue/EMS personnel, domestic violence victims, and physical/psychological abuse victims.
