    War Horse

    has anyone seen this movie? and am I right in thinking they use their swords wrong? They use what I think are 1902 and 1912 British Cavalry Swords, which don't have much of a cutting edge, yet they swing them and never thrust.

    Well, I dealt with overall tactics in my MA thesis (which was on WW1 British Cavalry), but just about every single time that movie went onto the battlefield, it was wrong. Seriously, I think the only thing they got right was the uniforms.

    Yes, that movie drove me nuts.
