Isnt the only one he really considers retarded Von Hötzendorf, debatably with merit?

For example, he does consider the French marching into battle with bright clothes and drums stupid, but doesn't berate any French general as retarded because they stopped doing that after the first week and switched to trenches and trenchcoats.

Hard to say which is best, good ones I've seen:

>Westfront 1918
>Gallipoli (the Mel Gibson one)
>Jonny Got His Gun
>Lawrence of Arabia
>White Sun of the Desert
>And Quiet Flows the Don
>Grand Illusion
Really aren't many "amazing" ones, and most aren't about combat. Saw an indie one called "Josef" about the Eastern front that was fine. Others that I have seen but found OK:
>Zeppelin
>The Blue Max
>Mata Hari
>War Horse
>Shock Troop
>Sergeant York

There is also a series called "Fall of Eagles" that covers the great empires of Europe to their fall which does a good job of covering WWI

I honestly don't think they could afford to equip their army to modern standards, sort of like the Ottomans in that regard, they just didn't have the economy of infrastructure to produce what they needed and so they relied very heavily on what Germany could give them instead.

The British Brody helmets were literally slabs of steel with a bump slammed into them to provide space for the head. If the Brits can do that, why can't the Austrians? That's as simple and cheap as helmets get.

There are two real nice images involving the Mark IV I've seen but been unable to find a scanned version of.
I can't remember any specific location names, units, or even male/female tank versions, but here's what I remember:
>british expedition to Jerusalem
>british, and I think canadian forces in a french town advancing. This is a great one. Mark IV, a single infantry man, and a single horseman, in a destroyed street. Horseman is in the foreground, tank in the back, infantry in the middle. Infantryman appears almost backlit, basically just a silhouette, with the tank directly behind him.

I'll drop some images that hopefully aren't too common.

Preventing WW1 would've been possible if France had destroyed the Germans in the Franco-Prussian War, which wouldn't be impossible. The only problem is that the Germans fully understood the value of railway transportation in war whereas the French did not (ever since 1815 they've only fought backwards faggots like the Netherlands, Russia, Austria and Africans, meaning their military doctrine was never really updated). The fact that the Prussians could get their soldiers on the battlefield earlier than the French meant that almost every battle was a foregone conclusion.

But yeah, a French victory in 1871 = no WW1.

I think the entire French attitude leading into the Franco-Prussian war can be characterised by their reaction to the American Civil War. It was the first war fought primarily with rifles as opposed to smoothbore muskets, and the subsequent increased range and precision of the weapons lead to an increased emphasis on fortifications, limited troop movements, and lo and behold, even early versions of trench warfare.

The French watched all of this unfold, scoffed at such uncouth tactics, and went right on drilling their soldiers in bayonet charges.

No lmao. There's no way that France could have won the Franco Prussian war. That's the nice thing about realpolitik; there's not much debate about alt history because rulers never gambled: just acted upon highly organized and one sided political advantages
