Paths of Glory is a fictional work that describes an assault by French troops during WW I on an impregnable German position called "The Ant Hill." The assault was a failure and many men died for nothing. To deflect blame from the general who ordered the assault, several French soldiers were picked at random, blamed for the failure, branded cowards, and court martialed.

Learning Guide Excerpt
To give you a sense of how our Learning Guides can be used by teachers to develop lesson plans, and by parents to supplement school curriculum or for homeschooling, we have set out below a paragraph from the Learning Guide to Paths of Glory.
World War I was caused by strong feelings of nationalism, economic rivalry between nations, the existence of large armies on all sides, and a history of hostilities in previous centuries that left countries and peoples with a feeling that they needed to get even with each other. The rulers of the German nation, united only since 1871, wanted to become a sea power and acquire a colonial empire. To fulfill these ambitions, Germany built up its navy, triggering a naval armaments race between England and Germany.
The Learning Guide to the film Paths of Glory contains sections on Benefits of the Movie, Possible Problems, Helpful Background, Discussion Questions, Links to the Internet, and Bridges to Reading. The Discussion Questions are divided into three categories: Subject Matter, Social-Emotional Learning, and Moral-Ethical Emphasis.
