Sorry about the title, couldn't help self.

 

This footage is from a Facebook page "The Commonwealth Soldier of WW1" It appears to show an attack on a mountain position. Unsure where or which languaage. What do you make of this footage. It it genuine?

Hungarian I think, need a translator for the inter-titles.

I think it's a created work, at least in part - some of the later scenes (around 11:20) have a camera man well within the action, not a place you'd want to be with a WW1 era film camera set-up.

Thanks both. Agree at least some of it staged. Certainly shows the difficulties of fighting in such a battlefield. Even if staged it's very well done.
