Battlefield Detectives

Show Summary

Battlefield Detectives is a historical forensic documentary TV series developed by the History Channel that explores history's more infamous battles in a bid to go beyond war tactics by utilizing modern science to see what truly led to a battle being won or lost. A team of experts, including the likes of archaeologists, forensic scientists, crowd dynamics specialists, military experts, and other scientists galore, take on the task of understanding war in a joint effort to combine their individual disciplines to find insights into what actually happened, rather than relying upon rumors and legends. What really did happen on the waters of English Channel when the Spanish Armada, considered the most illustrious naval fleet at the time, faced Queen Elizabeth I's forces in 1588? While the Siege of Alesia in 52 BCE is considered Julius Caesar's greatest military feats but why is considered an example of siege warfare? From the past to the present, Battlefield Detectives looks beyond what the history books say to find out the truth.moreless
