The Tragedy of War is a thought provoking film reminding us of the sacrifice made by millions during World War I + II. Filmed just outside Edinburgh along the Firth of Forth where many abandoned war time buildings remain. Pill boxes, Coastal artillery battery's, search lights, sea barriers and other fortifications guarded the bridges and the naval base at Rosyth. Many of the islands along the forth are fortified. During both World War I and World War II Inchmickery was used as a gun emplacement. The concrete buildings make the island look like a battleship.

Six weeks into World War II, the first air attack over Britain took place over the Forth. These were the first enemy aircraft of the war to be brought down over Britain.

I wanted to create a sombre and depressing feel to the film rather than the route of other films which seem to glorify war.
