Not to come off as rude or anything but this joke started on Blackadder Goes Forth, a British-television series which aired from September 28 to 2 November 1989. This was during the fifth episode of the series titled "General Hospital". If you need any more information I'd be glad to help out.

Source: I've watched Blackadder Goes Forth however you can find information here - en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blackadder_Goes_Forth

I have not realized, Polandball does that sometimes and people try to stop it.

Oh no I wasn't trying to imply they "stole" the joke, or that you as the uploader have. I was just putting this information out there in case anyone liked the joke and would be interested in this show. I find it actually rather great that you uploaded this seeing as now you've reminded me to go and re-watch the show.

Ah sorry I wasn't talking about you 'sticking' the comment, I thought you meant that "Polandballs" intentionally ripped this off.

That last episode :'(

also the line,
" We've been sitting here since Christmas 1914, during which time millions of men have died, and we've moved no further than an asthmatic ant with heavy shopping"

Every time :')

The final episode is when the writers just pretty much insulted WW1 in general whilst still keeping respect for the soldiers. It was a very well written episode, however the ending may not be as sad as we think.

There was a documentary which showed the real ending to the final episode and it clearly showed all the soldiers falling and dying . However they cut it out for unknown reasons.

I tried finding this documentary but could not unfortunately. Sorry.

Yea I remember that documentary came out a few X'mas's back

but the sad face was to show the sadness of it being the last Blackadder episode.

But yeah, I sympathise with Ben Elton, before writing for Blackadder he was a historian, that had done a few works on WW1, personally Ive only done a bit of work on WW1 and I've been brought to tears reading about it. I can only imagine what historians that have actually published have felt.

Its not the war that gets you, its the personal stories, the diaries that just suddenly stop.

Unfortunately war was like that, World War 1 in particular was very harsh. I like studying World War 1 as well, however I don't know that much about it. I wouldn't say it brought me to tears (though I do understand how it may) but it is very saddening.

If you do a case study on a particular regiment or soldier over the course of the war and you'd be surprised.

I remember looking at a Lancashire regiment, and I followed them, and we found some film footage that showed them laughing and joking on a road, about to move into a forest.

bout 30 minutes later the film crew went back through and there were just impact craters from shells there, the exact same place.

Was really hard to watch.

I think the worst part is the realisation that it wasnt just once or twice, It happened on all fronts, to all sides.

I hope nothing like it ever happens again.

It's supposed to be from World War I. Look up the flag of the German Empire from then and you'll see that he did it correctly.

They used he flag of the German Empire of 1871–1918. That is, during World War One, which, if you look at the helmets, this is portraying.

Exactly this.   
It's essencially the flag of the German Empire, or, what you could call it, the Second Reich, with the holy roman empire being the frist, and good ol' hitler's stuff being the Third Reich.
