Dr. Robert Watson co-researched, co-wrote, and was an on-camera expert for a six-part TV series "Forgotten Frontlines," which ran in spring and summer 2022 in Europe and Canada on such networks as Off the Fence, Science, Discovery, and Super Channel. Forgotten Frontlines sheds light on the war efforts that you didn't even know you didn't know. From conspiracies to covert ops, some pieces of the narrative seem to have slipped through the cracks of our collective memory. Now, we journey to fill in the gaps between those well-known, well-documented events to reveal the truth behind WWI's forgotten frontlines. Learn about Huertgen Forest, Operation Mincemeat, Pegasus Bridge, Gunnerside, The Nazi Titanic and the Battle for Castle Itter.
