A War Within is a 2018 drama movie directed by Kasper Torsting. For three years, the Danish-minded soldier Esben was at the front under German command, experienced the nightmare firsthand, and was declared a hero there. But that's over now: a well-meaning doctor sends him back home to his family in 1917. The hope of a normal life with his wife Kirstine and son Karl is soon dashed, as the German officer, Gerhard is now in charge, and not just militarily. For Esben, it is clear that he must fight for the love of his family, which he threatens to lose to his rival.

At first, the film was titled In Love and War but then it was changed for worldwide release.

The following weapons were used in the film A War Within:


MAS Mle. 1892

An Mle 1892 Revolver is discovered by Esben (Sebastian Jessen) from a dead French soldier.

Gerhard holds the rifle which is equipped with smaller stripper clip bridges compared to the WWI variant. It is worth mentioning that his Oberleutnant (1st Lieutenant) shoulder insignia (not visible in this screencap) does not fit his actual rank. He is referred to as a Hauptmann (Captain) several times.

Some German soldiers also carry M1896 Swedish Mauser rifles.
