I know they're movies but did they really all charge forward in a swarm while yelling as their main battle tactic?? because that seems like a good way to take a lot of casualties. was it because they still only had the battle instincts of warfare from pre-rifle times? or did they just never train any squad tactics whatsoever like fire and suppression, or even squad communication? it's like leadership just falls apart right away when they go over the trench - no tactics, just survive..
7:58 didn't they have any tactics other than charge straight forward? those rifles look like they would be accurate even from a distance so why didn't they move tactically, fire from cover and take accurate shots from a distance? the way they fight just seems like a brave way to get killed fast... but they were brave
Man is the only creature that finds the senseless killing of their own kind exilerating, Romanticize savagery, celebrate ghastly Blood lust, congratulate one another on their murderous escapades and after all's over and done with, make remarks on the barbarity and mindless madness of war only to repeat the same stupidity over and over again.
Tho I have the deepest respect for all soldiers who served in WW1, I am still trying to understand how a bayonnet charge against German machine gun fire was ever considered an effective battle strategy. I dunno, maybe try laying down some precise rifle fire from a distance? Train more marksmen?
The bit about warhorse was when the horse broke through the German trenches single hoofed and galloped to Berlin up the Albertstresse and biffed the Kaiser seven times on the chin, knocking his tash side ways, then he run out at full gallop and without stopping raced to Gallipoli and defeated the Turk. Great movie
The reality that this collection of ww1 action battles is on a par and even more impactful than the Private Ryan beach scenes were. I, glad that these movies reflect the stark reality of real WW1 war was truly like, thank you for showing us these scenes the shock and horror comes across as it truly should.
These movies, which mostly show British attacks on the Western front, seem to be overly influenced by the carnage of the first day of the Somme. The reality is that these attacks were often successful at the tactical level but due to the limitations of transport and communications they were rarely if ever translated into strategic gains. Also, they never show the devastation of the defending trenches where the British barrage often destroyed the first line of defense and the attacking waves sometimes walked in to little opposition. Of course, these successes were short lived as the Germans often successfully counterattacked.
Not to be too cavalier about these horrifying battles, there certainly were plenty of attacks where the British or French troops were slaughtered en masse. Still a head-scratcher as to why the generals kept doing the same kind of attacks over and over.
All of these clips were from films made in the 21st century. I'm guessing the creator hasn't seen such outstanding WW1 films as All Quiet on the Western Front (1930), Sergeant York (1941), or Paths of Glory (1956 or 57), all of which contained realistic battle scenes worthy of this video.
Hollywood has been around for nearly a century and still cant get battle scenes right. Its usually hit or miss. Why is there no studio that write and setup the scene that offers within a limited budget? A lot of the costs comes from creating their own stuff but cant there be a company that has pretty much everything they needed on hand that does most of the setup for them? A company that offers stunt people, costumes, and props as well as how the battle scene should be set up and filmed?
I’m don’t like disrespecting the dead but WW1 was badass despite all the horrible conditions the soldiers had to endure the battles that were fought feel like a playground of opportunity for story writers like me I creating a fictional German special forces battalion and I came here for inspiration
