SABATON – Fields of Verdun (Official Music Video)

August 25, 2019

As the drum roll started on that day Heard a hundred miles away A million shells were fired And the green fields turned to grey The bombardment lasted all day long Yet the forts were standing strong Heavily defended Now the trap has been sprung And the battle has begun Descend into darkness 303 days below the sun Fields of Verdun And the battle has begun Nowhere to run Father and son Fall one by one Under the gun Thy will be done [Echos] And the judgement has begun Nowhere to run Father and son Fall one by one Fields of Verdun Though a million shells have scarred the land No one has the upper hand From the ground above to trenches Where the soldiers make their stand As the trenches slowly turn to mud And then quickly start to flood Death awaits in every corner As they die in the mud Fill the trenches with blood Descend into darkness 303 days below the sun Fields of Verdun And the battle has begun Nowhere to run Father and son Fall one by one Under the gun Thy will be done [Echos] And the judgement has begun Nowhere to run Father and son Fall one by one Fields of Verdun Fields of execution Turned to wasteland from the grass Thou shalt go no further It was said: “They shall not pass!” The spirit of resistance And the madness of the war So… Go ahead! Face the lead! Join the dead! Though you die! Where you lie! Never asking why! [Awesome solo] Descend into darkness 303 days below the sun Fields of Verdun And the battle has begun Nowhere to run Father and son Fall one by one Under the gun Thy will be done [Echos] And the judgement has begun Nowhere to run Father and son Fall one by one Fields of Verdun “On ne passe pas!” (“One does not pass!”)

    Sabaton needs to write a song about Desmond Doss!!!! For those who don’t know who he is he, have you watched Hacksaw Ridge? He’s the man who fought the war without a weapon and saved countless lives. But yeah Sabaton needs to writs a song about him if they haven’t already.

    WWI was the most useless war in Europe’s history. There was no point behind it, no ideology, no God, no point at all. Just superpowers that wanted to show off their strength. No other footage saddens me more than The Great War one. The feel of what those men – some weren’t even men, just boys 15-18 years old had to go through in those trenches, the horror of constant bombardement, mud, insects everywhere, no place to sleep comfortably. All the wasted lives of European brothers whose only difference was language and what their goverment told them. It really shocks me how this war seems to be forgotten nowadays, when everyone seems to only remember WWII.

    Imagine being a young European pumped up by the news that a war is starting and the opportunity to fight for your country. You’re being lied to by your own goverment, the war will be quick they say…
    You sign up with all your friends from the neighbourhood, see the smiles of people waving to you, shouting, wishing you luck. They just don’t know one thing, you won’t be back…
    Once you get there, no one gives a damn about you, you see your friends fall right next to you, men being shred to pieces by artilery fire, people going mad, you eat dog food, you live under the constant threat of being poison gassed. And then the war ends, few come back, the ones that do experience severe PTSD, shellshock, live without limbs, have no job and home.

    What was all of that for? Just to show that your royal family is better than your cousins?

    My dear Europeans, NO MORE BROTHER WARS.

    Don't get me wrong, I love Sabaton, and this song is great… But why is there a British tank in the background?

    I wouldn't have thought any tanks were active at Verdun considering they made their debut at the Somme. There's a few months overlap, but still.

    Смерть за спиной,
    Я слышу вой,
    Я вижу бой.
    И уничтожен разум мой!

    Чеченский ад!
    Здесь погибает наш солдат.
    За тех кто мертв
    Му будем бить,
    Мы будем мстить,
    Нам этот ужас не забыть.

    Дубль два.

    Бой за Вердан!
    Здесь погибаем мы от ран.
    Трус и храбрец,
    Сын и отец,
    Нам всем конец,
    На земле рубец.

    Бой за Вердан!
    Вся война – сплошной обман.

    На земле рубец,
    Нам всем конец,
    Спасибо нас, Отец!

    I am not a metal person……but I love the fact Sabaton sings about actually history.
    I have found a few songs by chance.
    The Great War is being forgotten these days. Many just shrug it off as a minor event these days.
    But the Great War set the stages for WW2, modern warfare (and changes in battle tactics), and conflict we still struggle with today.
    Heck, I remember having breakfast in collage in the early 2000’s when the morning news showed a huge funeral in Britain for a elderly woman who turns out was a nurse (barely 16 at the time) during the Great War right behind the front lines. She saw and experienced Hell and Death.
    This was only found out as she was dying, and old paperwork revealed her past. She never told her surviving family what she did.
    When word reached the royal family about this, the royal family announced since this had to be the last known British Great War Veteran, they would be covering all funeral expenses.
    I saw the casket being carried by one of each representatives of the British military to her final resting place. The streets filled with civilians paying their respect.
    The witnesses of WW1 are gone.
    May they RIP.
    Gone. But not forgotten.

    Let nobody say that the French were weak, cowardly or that they weren't helpful. They had sacrificed so much that they were touchy about trying to get involved further after suffering a massive hit like Verdun, then several smaller, still devastating losses… it's easy to see why they didn't want to commit any large force that was more than " Uh… here's a few tanks? Like ten? It's all we can spare in case that crap happens again. " They were gun shy because America wasn't there to help yet and Britain couldn't reach them nearly in time to save them from being absolutely devastated by heavy loss. By that point the french had a score to settle and many stayed to fight and die in the streets of several port towns and some took it to Paris itself just to put a bit more resistance up in the capital. … People say there's no honor in war, but those men, occasionally women later on when freedom fighters cropped up and even children that perished died as warriors resisting an oppressive occupation in the name of France. They honored their people and we should honor their sacrifice.

    So I have come cross a Friend. I showed him this and some other songs of Sabaton. We talked a little about it and came a cross a dividing point. Said point was that he thinks songs like this about war shouldn't be done or if they done more "realistic". Realistic means showing the real face of the war a the sad and traumatizing reality. And that Sabatons songs are like a glorification of war. I am sadly dumb enough to hopfully start a conservation about this topic in the comments of a song.
