Hi Chunks
It is good to see someone remembers the Armenian Genocide, an event sadly unknown by many.

One could add that 'Stosstrupp 1917' was an anti-Remarque movie that wanted to "correct" the pacifist impetus of 'All Quiet on the Western Front', a movie which was rejected by the right winged in Germany.
One of the best films I've seen is next to "All Quiet on the Western Front" a German movie called "Westfront 1918".
