Review: History Channel: Weird Warfare

I have just finished seeing History Channels "Weird Warfare", which documents the weirdest inventions that is made with intention in using it for warfare. It is over one and a half hour long - a little too long, if you ask me, and I got bored after about 40 mintes, which in my opinion is ideal length for these documetaries.

That said, I laughed a lot. A great deal of the weapons can be classified as "animal cruelty", but they don't show clips with animals suffering. Most of these incidents are also ridicilouse and extremly funny. For instance special trained russian dogs, intended for running under german tanks during world war 2 with bombs. The problem was that the dogs was only trained to run under, and run back. So they did that. With the bombs - back to the trainer! Haha. Funny!

Because of the length, it became pretty boring, but the beging was really entertaining, so I will give this a 3 out of 6. See the begining, and turn it off. It is definetly worth it.


  1. Poor damned dogs!

    One must wonder if there was a case of "friendly fire" where the dog was the aggressor...

  2. i might watch the first 40 minutes of it!

  3. hahaha. all the fun stuff you can teach your dog to do!

  4. Hah! So this looks like one of those "put on TV and only pay half attention to" types of shows.

  5. Haha, I read somewhere too, that the russians trained the "anti-tank dogs" on their own tanks, and since german tanks used a different kind of diesel they smelled different. So when they let them loose on the actual battlefield, they ignored the enemy tanks and went straight to the russian ones.
