World War I historian Alexander Watson rates six First World War battle scenes from movies and TV shows for realism.
He discusses the accuracy of trench warfare in "All Quiet on the Western Front" (2022), featuring Daniel Brühl, and "Wonder Woman" (2017), starring Gal Gadot. He also comments on aerial combat and gas masks in "The Red Baron" (2008) and "The Lost City of Z" (2016), starring Charlie Hunnam. Watson analyzes the guns, artillery, tanks, grenades, and other weapons used in "Sajjan Singh Rangroot" (2018) and "Gallipoli: End of the Road" (2013).
Watson is a professor of history at Goldsmiths, University of London, and an expert on World War I. He has written three books on it: "Enduring The Great War," which explores how British and German soldiers coped on the Western Front; "Ring of Steel," about the war from the German and Austria-Hungarian perspective; and "The Fortress," about the siege of Przemyśl on the Eastern Front.
